  • I had the same problem and I took mine out myself. There were a couple girls on here that did. It did not hurt at all

  • that is so scary i cant even imagine that im living somewhere other than usa and all the girls here who have the mirena get put right after baby comes out so they all have gotten pregnant or it has fell out but i dont know why in my mind i feel like it was tied in there or hooked on and i feel that to take it out iot would hurt to "untie or unhook" it i dunno its just a scary thought.

  • It doesn't tie to anything....the strings hanging down, when you pull them it collapses the T. It literally slides right out. There's nothing to untie or unhook...it just sits in there. Let me find the post for you.l

  • I sneezed and my Mirena fell out. It was worthless and caused more trouble than it was worth. In the 6 months I had it in, I had 9 periods. It SUCKED.
