Hi I'm 33 and I have a novel to share with everyone about the Mirena. First all I'm writing this because I want mine out and Now. I have been the most MOODIEST female out there. I may only get 2 good days out of a month. So My Family Dr. and I have been keeping and eye on my moods for the past 4 months since thats when I started noticing big time my Mood swings. I have had my Mirena in for 9 months now. I replaced my old regular copper IUD for this Merina and I wish I just stuck with the old one. Sure my Period lasts longer but I would rather have that then being up and down like a rollercoaster. I have a past of Anxiety/Depression and I am VERY happy to say that I have not needed any ant-anxiety or anti- depressants for almost 2 years. I've mentioned to my Dr. about these moods and we discussed to keep track. My Dr had told me that I DO NOT need Anti-drugs but lets give this Mirena thing a little longer to see if maybe its causing these moods. Well OK . I had made an appointment for this past Monday to have my Mirena taken out. My Regular Family Dr. is on holidays so I made an appointment to see the fill in Dr. I was ready and ready now to get this Mirena out. My Moods have been extra horrible so I wanted to act now and not wait another month. I also want to share that my Mother said from day one I was not the same once I had this Mirena put in. Well I was not expecting my Dr. appointment to go the way it did. So I'm all happy that today I'm gonna get this thing out and see if its the true cuprit of my Moods. The Fill in Dr. came in and I was not impressed. ( I've seen her before not My Fave) I have NEVER EVER felt so little she was telling me that I'm the second person in 15 years that has described these symptoms and that she didn't believe that person and really didn't believe me. She said there is such a small amount of Hormone in the Mirena to have that kind of effect on you and proceeded to tell me that maybe I'm blaming the Mirena and that something else is going on. SO looking through my file she told my I'm depressed and perscribed me Anti-depressants. She said I will take the Mirena out if you like but she convinced me I really was depressed plus I was so mad at her for the way she made me feel I didn't want her down there in my private area so I left still with the Mirena in. I went home and was very upset feeling so Little but in a few hours I cleared my head and started thinking and had this strong gut feeling that I don't need these drugs something was just telling me NO. SO I went on the computer and started to research this Mirena and see if anyone else has these side effects. WELL I was sure surprised when I Googled it. How many there were and how the Mirena causes all the symptoms of depression and Anxiety. So I said NO to taking those Anti-depressants until I make an appointment to see my Regular Dr. Well I have an appointment tomorrow at 3pm its not my Regular Doctor the receptionist didn't want me to wait so I booked with the other Regular Dr. NOT A FILL IN!!! I will see what she has to say but I'm telling her I want this Mirena out to see if its the cause of my Moods along with some printouts of other peoples experiences. So Before I go Mucking with Anti-depressant pills I want to try getting this Mirena out. So Ladies I will fill you in. Please share your stories if you have the same effects. I'm going to look through some more of these stories.
