After giving my Mirena time to settle down, had in put in July 09..I had it removed yesterday! Needless to say, the thing never settled down..right after i had it put in, first off, I bled for about 6 weeks. This was no surprise to me, I dealt with it...but then the awful night sweats came, almost every night I would sweat and soak my pjs...terrible!! During the entire time with my Mirena, I had acne break out on my back and shoulders, some on my face, but mostly on my back area..not fun at all. My hair became very oily looking all the time..very gross!!! I felt unclean all the time due to night sweats, oily broken out skin and oily hair.Mood swings were terrible..felt like I was PMS'ing all the time..happy one minute, drop of a hat, mad the next!My poor children and poor hubby!! My periods never stopped, they got worse, heavy, heavy bleeding..for several days, even heavy bleeding during the night...therefore, messing up the bed, clothes, and would even bleed through pads,pants and onto whatever I was sitting on! I cant explain how terrible things were....so, I decided I to research the Mirena and found this site, so i am not crazy after all. Once I read some of the posts, I decided it was the Mirena causing my misery, so many of you other ladies are going through the exact same thing. This made me feel better, knowing I was not alone and NOT crazy. I made an appt to have my Mirena taken out, as the doc was removing the Mirena, she stated the Mirena was half way out already, and that is why my bleeding was so heavy. Well, my body was trying to get rid of that thing on its own! haha! i guess in time it would of fallen out...but thank the lord, it is now gone and I am soo ready to feel like ME again...including my kids and my husband! The doctor said my night sweats and other symptoms should be gone quickly, she said in a month I should have a period and get back to normal. Removal was painless and I did spot a bit, but not much after removal. I am just happy it is gone. Good luck to all of you out there suffering from this awful thing called Mirena!!
