  • I bled for a long time right afterward (6-8 weeks), was an emotional wreck, no sex drive, had mini panic attacks, anxiety and nervousness, mood swings, SEVERE fatigue...for the first YEAR. I finally had enough of waiting for my body to adjust and had mine removed. I felt 100% better within 2 weeks of having it taken out. I HATED it. On the other hand my sister has one in and her only issue has been periods that last a couple of weeks, they are light but last for a while, she has had hers in for over a year now too. So it depends on the person what kind of reaction you could have to it. If you are going to get one, just keep these things in mind because they aren't listed as side effects but there are many, many women who have had similar experiences. So if you start having any issues like that after getting one it could be from the IUD.
