  • Huh, I never had any of those symptoms, but that's not to say its not giving you trouble. I do know if its poking your husband you just need the string trimmed shorter. A quick office visit for the dr. to cut the string and that problem will go away, because that's what's poking him. As for the other symptoms, a good rule of thumb is to give a new medication, or implant, 6 weeks and then judge how you feel. Since you got yours on the 1st of Dec. I'd say if its still making you feel that horrible its not the right birth control for you. That is def. not the typical Mirena users response, I've known about 10 people who had the implant and 1 of those people experienced moodiness for the first few weeks, and then it went away. When you go to get those strings cut maybe talk to your dr. about a completely different option in general. Good Luck!
