Mirena Liars, Drs Office, Good Experience, Attitude, Office
I think you guys are all crazy liars. I have mine and I love it also I work in a GYN office and I've asked the other women who had it inserted and they all love it too.
Vanessa74 - WOW - what a HORRID THING to say to people who are suffering. Everyone reacts to medications, etc. differently - just because you had a good experience (LUCKY YOU) - does not mean that everyone will. There are many here who have had much suffering from this... And you WORK in a Drs. office???? - I pity the people who have to deal with you and your unkind/uncaring attitude.
Claudia1969 - It's people like you who send women back home without taking them seriously. They should kick you out of that office! You should be ashamed of yourself. But obviously, you are not a very empathic person.
Abennette - Your response is probably one of the most ignorant responses I have ever read. So what if you work in an OBGYN office and you have asked others and they agree with you. Every women response differently to medications and someone working in a medical office(unless you just sort and file all day ) should know that. Shame on you for calling other women that don't share your experiences liars!!!!! Maybe after you have matured a little bit you wont resort to such demeaning statements.
Lishthemom - this is a very unkind post! all you had to say was, "i disagree with many of the women on this site. i feel as if this form of birth control is wonderful." no need to be rude to the rest of us whose bodies disagree with it. i am so glad you do not work at my doctors office. if you did and called me a liar i would be loud enough for everyone on your office to hear about disresepectful and crappy your bedside manner is. i hope one day you get a doctor who treats you the same way you just treated all of us!
Aussiegirl80 - I was a happy healthy 27 year old before i had that evil thing put in me how dare you call us liars if you only knew what this thing has done to our bodies arent you so LUCKY it worked so well for you please keep your opinions to your self if you dont have anything nice to say dont say it at all!!
Mommypenn - I don't think name calling does any one any good and if you don't agree with the issues that some of us are having or are trying to figure out then you don't have to. I am glad that none of your patients are having problems, or perhaps they aren't aware that what they are experiencing could be due to MIRENA. Why don't you ask them if they have any of the issues some of us have discussed??? If we are crazy then surely you wont have issues asking because they'll only confirm your rather RUDE comment. Thank God you don't work in my GYNs office because I'd have thought that the profession you are in should be more considerate and understanding rather than opinionated and RUDE
Arodrigu - Your email made me so sad. It is unbelievable to me that somebody could be that insensitive to other people's experiences. Just because you have not had problems does not mean that other people are liars. It sounds like nobody would be able to convey that message to you though. I hope that nobody was hurt by your message. And I hope you never find yourself in a situation where people doubt you.
Ahackett1 - You're reply is ignorant. This site is for people to post their own experiences not to dispute the experiences that others have. Walk a mile in someone else's shoes and enlighten yourself.
Sharonetteh - You are such an inconsiderate individual low life person. Anytime you would insult us women who are having all these problems with this IUD is shame on you. Maybe your body adjust to progestrine only and ours does not. I personally am insulted by you when I have lost my hair of all things, stomach all bloated, and had all the pains in my joints! You need to be considerate and apologize to all of us who view this website...you inconsiderate person with no heart.
Novaleesa - You are, of course, fully entitled to feel however you want. It's too bad you were so hurtful in the way you decided to talk to the rest of us. Personally, I am very happy for you that you love your IUD and it's working out well for you and the women you have polled from your office. Obviously the Mirena has had more good come of it than bad. However, there is still that 5% or less of the users who have the side effects. I would propose that you go to the Mirena website and look at the product insert. Most of the symptoms and side effects that the women here are talking about are actually listed there. The problem is that the doctors are not well-educated about the potential complications. I sincerely hope that you continue to remain pleased with your IUD and I hope you won't be so judgmental of others in the future.
Mabl - You better think again,it is effecting you and you don't even know it!!! Why would you make such a rude comment? MIRENA does make you feel angrey,hostile,careless and stressed. That's why they call it the fight or flight device.YOU NEED TO HAVE YOURS REMOVED!! Maybe people will start to like you again. LOL
Tnksmom - Mirena does make a lot of women crazy, so I'll give you that one. But liars?? C'mon, grow up. I, too, loved my Mirena for the first two years I had it. No side effects, no period, very reliable - it was perfect! Until my third year with it.... I gained 15 pounds, spent countless hours in the doctor's office (thankfully not yours) trying to figure out the back pain, joint pain, hair loss, loss of sex drive and extreme fatigue and irritabilty/rage. I may be a crazy liar, but when I got my Mirena removed, most of my symptoms cleared up (or are at least improving). I hope you continue to have good luck with your Mirena, and don't find yourself suffering from any of the debilitating side effects these hundreds of women have experienced. I wouldn't wish my Mirena experience on anyone, not even you.
Srsdww - Your post is counterproductive. Who are you to question what a woman believes is happening with her body? It is well known in the medical field that some people will suffer certain side effects and others will not. What works for one, may not work for others. Your comment is rude and insensitive.
Brandnewb4u - Relax people. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. She probably just said that to get a rise out of you anyway and you all fell for the bait.
Lovelyone - You have no right to call any of the women liars! I also have had no problems with the device, but you are not their body so therefore you have no idea what so ever wht they are experiencing. No one is the same so just because you or I haven't had any of those problems does not mean they haven't. I also don not hink that they should be called liars...you know nothing about them, and if you did not have anything respectfull to say, then you should have kept your big mouth shut and not posted anything!!!
Sharonkt2000 - What are you doing browsing a side effect forum if you don't have any? I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that my side effects are completely attributable to Mirena (even down to the annoying eye twitch that has been plaguing me for the last 6 weeks). I know it in my heart and I know it in my mind. However, if the side effects reported here are not listed on the medical pamphlet, the medical community doesn't believe they exist. It's that kind of arrogance (and closed mindedness) that gets these pharmaceutical companies sued.
Bama_mama - Be grateful that you have not experienced any side effects and that the Mirena has thus far been a good option for you. However, to dismiss an entire online forum of women sharing honest feelings, experiences and opinions as "crazy liars" is irresponsible and hurtful on your part, to say the very least. I am a RN with a Master's Degree and have always carefully researched anything having to do with my health care options and that of my family- and the Mirena was no exception. Forums like this exist because frankly thus far the side effects are not showing up in the research. For you to dismiss this is as negligible as the drug companies who tried to dismiss the cardiovascular dangers of COX-2 inhibitors (Celebrex, etc.). In some ways it is worse as you WORK in women's health and no doubt hear the concerns and complaints of patients every day on this and undoubtedly other topics. Shame on you. Perhaps you should rethink your career choice- find one that requires no patient care skills such as empathy, insight, or deductive reasoning. I for one would be horrified to have a person such as yourself anywhere NEAR a patient.
