I have had the Mirena for about 13 months and at first thought it was the greatest thing ever. The insert of it was not painful at all. Having no periods was the greatest thing ever.. But it seems as time passes by its one symptom after another. I have had constant headaches and many many Migrains, my hair is falling out, very moody and sometimes emotional for no reason at all, back pain, ohh and the dreaded weight gain that seems to not disappear no matter what I do, Im always tired and lack my usual energy, I seem to have barely any sex drive and alot of anxiety. Are there any ladies out there that have or had the Mirena and experienced these same symptoms?? Whats your Mirena story good or bad? Im sch. to have it removed in 1 week but still undecided weather I want to or not and Ive read the removal is very painful!
My experience was TERRIBLE. Here are some links to my journals about my experience with the Mirena. I refuse to recommend it to anyone. But, it's too much to tell here, so I'll just post links.
