  • I had ALOT of problems. I was in pain since the day I got it, I felt pregnant 24/7, I gained 25lbs, would lose handfulls of hair, I was really moody. I had it for 3 months before I decided to call the doctor to have it taken out. They gave me an ultrasound & discovered it embedded & I had surgery to remove it the next day. The second I woke up in the recovery room, I felt SO much better.

  • Thank you so much for your comments. I just don't really know what's up with me right now, that sounds bad. I got it in 07, after I had my daughter & was cleared from my oncologist due to cancerous cells in the cervix. but now I have started to feel so bad, I'm tired all the time, it's awful. can somebody have the iud for this long then start having problems?? thanks again everybody
