  • I didn't have that problem..I had mine for three years before getting that piece of crap out and switching to the Paragard IUD. Bumping for you!

  • It's because your body is having to get back into "the swing of things". Understand that it's been 5 years since it's had to produce hormones, and now it will have to start producing all of your hormones again, exclusively. Sounds to me like you're going through postpartum-type symptoms... like as if you'd had a baby and your body had to readjust. I would definitely tell your doctor about your symptoms and how long you've been having them. He/She may be able to help your body jump start.
