Thank goodness for this site. I had my Mirena removed on Feb.16th 2009 after reading everyone's posts. I first had it inserted in April 2008 because progestrin pills were making me gain tons of water weight which was leaking around my heart and I still had painful heavy clot field cycles. I have SLE lupus so I can't have estrogen. Mirena insertion was horrible. I was in severe pain for 2 weeks. There after I had contraction like pain daily(or at least that's the best way to describe it seeing how I've never had a child), developed multiple cysts that kept bursting between cycles, gained 25 lbs., have bad acne seeing how I used to be called baby face because I never had acne before, severe depression and mood swings, and the 'fuzzy' 'out of it' feeling several women have described on this site. When I told my GYN about what I was experiencing she made me think I was crazy saying the Mirena wasn't causing my problems. Granted my cycles got lighter but never stopped. So I had a laparoscopy done to see what might be causing me to be constantly in severe pain. It showed nothing. So then my GYN was really making me feel crazy seeing how the laparoscopy showed nothing and the doc kept saying it wasn't the Mirena. So Jan. 2009 I stumbled across this site looking for reasons I would have 2 excruciating and heavy cycles 3 days apart from each other while on the Mirena. Well I got my answer. The Mirena was screwing' me up and ruining my life. Turns out I'm not crazy and now am free from the grasp of that evil pharmaceutical plot to ruin women's lives while making big bucks. I was just about to start taking antidepressants before I had the Mirena removed now I'm holding off cause this constant aggressive and angry mode I was in has disappeared since having the thing removed. And I no longer cry for no reason. I just came off of a heavy cycle reminiscent of how it was before Mirena. I also experienced a 'crash' yesterday and I was very moody. But that's expected with the damage this thing has obviously done to my body. I'm trying really hard to lose the weight I gained by May 1st, or at least most of the weight. Was 170 lbs before Mirena because of the steroid Prednisone I'm taking for my Lupus and I'm 195 lbs right now. I'm going to Florida in May so I want to feel good about myself and maybe consider getting in a pool. Anyways, I will let everyone know how my Mirena rebound is coming along in the next few weeks. If anybody gets wind of a class action suit against Bayer pharmaceuticals please let me know. I'd love to get these jokers for ruining my life!
