I have had the IUD since March 2007. I had it inserted when I was on my period, and my period ended up lasting 2 weeks longer than normal. After that, my periods were VERY light - just a slight pink tint. I usually have my period start the 14th or 15th of each month. This month (October), I haven't had my period. I have taken a pregnancy test, and it came up negative. I feel very bloated, tired, cranky, increased appetite, and headaches. I did some research and found that the IUD can cause pregnant like symptoms, and that once removed the woman felt much better.
Does anyone have the IUD and experienced these sorts of things? Should I go to the doctor, and make sure that I am not pregnant - even though I got a negative?
