I got my IUD removed on Jan 8th, 2013, and what I think was my period started right away and lasted for about 5-6 days. Then on the 23rd and 24th I got some light bleeding (more brownish on the 24th), then nothing... I also started being nauseous, no vomiting, very tired, light cramping in pelvic area, constipated. My period should have started on Feb 5th-9th but now it's the 19th and still nothing. Has anybody experienced such symptoms after having the Mirena removed? I had light periods all the time while on the Mirena, already have a kid so I know what it's like to feel pregnant. I could have sworn I am pregnant, but I got several negative hpts and also a negative blood test checking for hcg. Today I went in for an ultrasound, also a vaginal ultrasound, and they came back with no pregnancy visible, everything normal. So, why am I walking around "feeling" congestion in my pelvic area, why am I nauseous and tired? Is this the Mirena Crash? At least I found out that everything is ok inside there, but unless I'm expecting the motherload of a period, I don't know what to think. Has anybody else experienced something like this? Thank you!
P.S. I'm 48, in EXCELLENT health, TTC my 2nd child, that's why I took the Mirena out. I never had any problems while with the Mirena and I'm not menopausal either.
