Hey gals, I just got the Mirena inserted yesterday and I feel less than great. I still have AF-like cramps, albeit not terrible ones. I also feel nauseous and tired, and I have mild stomach cramping and head aches. It's kinda the way I felt at week 6 of pregnancy (and no, I'm not preggers). I know that the medicine is right under my belly, but I'm wondering when it will stop making me sick. Has anyone else with the Mirena IUD had the same experience?

I had this happen with my mirena and the headaches got so bad I had to have it removed. The headaches did not resolve until at least a week after the removal.

For the first 6 months, I had early to mid labor pains with my IUD. It was terrible. I felt like I was in labor for days. I didn't have headaches tho. My IUD did make me very very aggressive too. I had it removed because I was not myself anymore. GL and I hope things get better for you!
