I just found out that I have 2 mirena's inside of me. The first one was inserted and there was a lot of pain the first night, and although I called the Dr., they neer called me back. So when I went to get it rechecked,4 or 6 weeks later, we could not locate it even by ultrasound. So the Dr. put another one in. I started having horrible rashes/hive looking, and itchy episodes. I finally called the Dr. office, and the nurse said that it would not have been from the mirena. With no insurance, I just dealt with it for many months, but finally went to the E.R. where I was told it was scabies, which I new was not correct. Sure enough, it was not scabies. Now, almost 2 whole years after getting the Mirena, I had to have x-rays for back/neck pain at the spinal clinic, yes, I finally have insurance again. The next day after having them done, my Dr. calls to tell me that there are two iud's in me. The nurse said that this could have been causing my extremely embarrassing skin condition, and more extreme discomfort all this time due to the double dose of progesterone I am getting. I breast fed my daughter for 8 months after giving birth, and I am waiting to go to the dr. and have at least on removed. So my questions are: A: Can this have harmed my daughter through my breast milk, and what should I know about removal procedures, and any med malpractice issues if necessarily?
