Hi all, I have never posted on the Birth Control board before and i have a question about the Mirena.
I had the Mirena fitted in June 10. Since then i have had erratic bleeding and severe abdominal cramps and backpain. My doctor says its because my body and the hormones in the mirena are not compatable and i need to have it taken out. After i had it put in i had severe cramps for a couple of days and my question is does it hurt having it taken out and do you get bad cramps afterwards. Also im interested to know if anyone else had the same side effects while on the mirena?

I had heavy bleeding the first 3 months and then constant spotting the next 6 months. Bloated and crampy all the time and had a headache that never went away. My hands, arms, and feet kept going numb to the point of waking me up several times a night and disturbing my daily life (like having to take regular breaks to shake out the tingles).

Two weeks ago I said "enough" and pulled it out myself. It did not hurt at all. Felt just like a tampon coming out. Way better than the experience I had having it inserted! The day after taking it out I had no spotting or cramping. But day two I had what was like a light period that lasted two days and then finally for the first time in 9 months I haven't been spotting or bleeding at all. My headaches gone. Within a week my numbness has gone away. My milk supply has definitely gone up (which I thought it wasn't suppose to affect bm? ). I've been feeling very pregnant... nausea, fatigue, and emotional as my body tries to regulate back off the hormones. I was going to test, but I am 99% positive that I started ovulating last night.

I miss the security and convenience, but the side effects were not worth it. I hope you have yours removed and feel better soon!

Thank you Neads. I think i will have it removed on thursday. I am really hoping that it gets rid of all these aches and pains and that i can get back to normal again. I have been getting headaches as well which i never put down to the mirena, but looking at it now they have only started since getting it in. I never got headaches before. Roll on thursday.
