Do you have an IUD birth control?

I have Mirena birth control (IUD) I swear my body isn't the same since I've had it... I got it right after my son was born almost 2 years ago... My family is extremely fertile, I was one of the lucky ones that got pregnant while I was on the pill! So I was wondering if anyone else felt the same? Craps? Lack of weight loss? anything?

  • Yes. I have Mirena. I don't know how much of my issues are related to the Mirena. I have the craps often and have tried to lose weight and couldn't and I am tired all the time. I also have a lot of pelvic pain and I am getting an ultrasound done next week to see what is going on in there. This is my second Mirena and I have it to control my periods. I had my tubes tied 4 years ago.

  • YES! I have the copper one with no hormones and I LOVE it. It doesn't have any effect on my body and I don't have to ever think about bc. I have even recommended it to friends that have gotten it.

  • technically Mirena is an IUC, not an IUD. I have it, i have been having trouble with weight loss, but i chock that up to being extremely dehydrated all the time. I love my mirena, i don't have any problems with it at all. In fact, it's the best birth control i've ever had. The pill made me super bitch. I tried so many different kinds. They either made me puke, or they made me a super over emotional bitch. When i got off the pill & got my mirena, i was such a different person but in a great way. I feel myself again. LOVE IT! I'm getting another one as soon as this one needs to get out.

    I notice women always blame evrerything on their BC. Kind of funny...

  • Wow if this is you happy would hate to see you on the other pill.. Ha, Not trying to blame anything on BC, I just know my body and I know that something doesn't feel right, But my son is my only child and since I got it right after he was born I just don't know how I'm supposed to feel.

  • I tried an IUD after my youngest was born, had to change because it started coming out and didn't want any chances like that!
