Okay, so here is my story...
This is my second Mirena. Sucks just as much as the first.I had the first one put in Dec 2006 after the birth of my second child. Everything was fine so I thought. By June I was starting to experience some pain. I kept finding myself in and out of the ER, all hours of day or night. I remember one time they scheduled to have my appendix removed first thing the next morning. But after a few more tests, they said they couldn't figure out what was wrong, gave me some meds / fluids and sent me on my way. It was the same thing every time. I began to think that maybe I was imaging these pains. Anyway, by September I ended up in the hospital by ambulance I might add. I was cooking dinner and all of the sudden out of nowhere I was doubled over in pain. My husband went to run me a bath while I lay in the kithen uncontrolably vomitting. He finally got me into the tub but the warm water only made it worse. Now at this point I already had 2 kids so I knew what real pain was, but this... This was something even worse. He drove me up to the nearest hospital. We were new in town and didnt know where to go. That hospital tried to help me and got me started on IV's right away. They packed me up and put me into an ambulance and sent me to a different hospital while my husband and 2 kids followed behind. They removed my IUD and I stayed for 3 days due to an infection. They said I either had a cyst the erupted or a blighted ovum. Either way, It was something I never want to experience again. So March 2008 came around and I got pregnant with my 3rd. After having him I talked with my ob and we agreed to trying it again. He thought that maybe the doc that put it in previous didn't place it correctly, and since I was nursing it was one of the only options. So I had another put in the end of Jan 2009. Bled for 3 months straight. Husband was upset because there wasn't any sex. I have had numerous ultrasounds checking my IUD. They say it looks fine, but I have the same symptoms that all of you have had. Only lately I feel that I could be pregnant again. I have thrown up almost everyday for 3 weeks, heartburn every time I eat, constipated, headaches, itchy nipples, sore breasts and the feeling that something is moving in my belly. About a month ago I was on some antibiotics due to sinusitis and Pneumonia. I'm sure I'm not pregnant, but its just weird. I haven't really had a period for 6 months or so. That same pain I had before is starting to come back. I could never forget that pain. I stay very aware of any type of uterine or cervical pain. I feel this thing is ruining my marriage. We rarely ever have sex cause it hurts and makes me bleed. I have no sex drive. My husband thinks it's just an excuse not to be intimate. I'm ready to get this thing out. Oh and weight gain. About 15 pounds. I'm a wreck. I guess the Mirena DOES NOT work for me. I wish it did. making an appointment to take it. I suppose if God wants to give me more children... he will. Best of luck to all of you.
