  • I had the Mirena, but had crazy symptoms similar to those off and on the whole year I had it. Just got it out 2 weeks ago and I feel SO much better so it could definitely be from your IUD.

  • I would advise you to get it out immediately. I was told they no longer use copper because of the damage it causes. My sister had her copper iud for 5 years and then they put in a new one, also copper, it basically poisened her system she had boils all over the place severe health problems, I cant even remember all the problems it caused once she had it removed some of the problems dissapeared but the damage is already done. be careful
