I had the Mirena inserted six months ago. Since then I have noticed a huge change in myself. I am very moody and irritated all the time. I feel depressed most days and want to lie around all day. I have no motivation or real care for the important things (ie, laundry, dishes, housework). I feel like I'm on really bad hormonal rampage 24/7. I wake every morning with a headache. I have no interest in sex. I don't feel turned on and could care less if I ever got it. I have not experienced any weight gain, thank goodness. I am easily overwhelmed by the tiniest things. I have three children and it's all I can do to tolerate them each day, which is so unlike me. I do not have ringing in my ears, but I am very sensitive to loud noises and get easily aggravated by toys that make noise and loud laughter. (Not good for a stay at home Mom) I have thoughts of throwing and breaking stuff due to my frustration and I have no idea what I'm really frustrated at. I am definitely a different person since the Mirena was put in. Also, I have been having really bad pain in my wrists. They almost feel sprained. I am having it removed ASAP. I miss the old me. It's been so long, I've forgotten how to be happy and have a wonderful sex life with my husband and have fun with my children. I will be having a tubal. Bad periods, to me, is way better than a chemical imbalance due to hormones. The headaches alone are enough to make me go insane. I have done lots of reading on Wild Yam. For all you ladies that have bad periods and are using the Mirena to fix it... look into Wild Yam. It's suppose to lighten the flow and symptoms of a period and boost your natural sex drive. Most importantly it's NOT a drug.
Good Luck to you all!
