Mine is kind of a long story, but to shorten it for this.... I had it inserted, then lost my milk less than a month later. I had horrible cramps all the time. I didn't get a period. I had migraines worse than ever before. I was tired all the time, extremely moody, and suicidal. My hair started falling out like crazy, I gained 35lb in less than two months (while I was exercising and eating well), I couldn't have sex because I couldn't really get physically ready and then I was in excruciating pain (and my husband got stabbed by the strings because my doctor left them like 2 inches long), like it was going through my uterus or something. There's probably more that I'm not remembering, but it was horrible for me. I almost ended up in the hospital because of it. If you want the whole story, and updates from after it was removed, I have a few journals about it, so you can send me a message about those.
