Mirena IUD side affects?

Did you have any side affects while using the mirena IUD? I have had mine for about a yr and I have to say it hasn't been that bad but I'm getting it taken out in a couple weeks due to some cramping, anxiety and I've just been over all moody since I got it.

  • Mine would take WAY too long to list here, so here's the journal detailing most of it.

  • I had no side effects from Mirena. I loved it and plan on getting a new one put in soon. Sorry it isn't working out for you. I loved not having a period and not having to worry about taking anything.

  • I had crapms and was moody as well. I also lost my sex drive. I still had it but it was not what it was before. I had it taken out last September and I am back to my old self.

  • I have had no side effects from it, getting ready to get a new one since I've had this one just under 5 years. It has been wonderful, no periods and no worries about unexpected sorry to hear it isn't working for you, it has been heaven sent for me, I was always having some sort of side effect from bcp.
