Damn thing has been causing me hell ever since I got it inserted. Dr wouldn't take it out so I did it myself :) I can't put into words to describe how much better I feel!! :) I know it was irresponsible as all hell but I did a ton of research first and found a forum full of success stories so I figured it wouldn't hurt to try lol

EDIT: There is a risk of complications when an IUD is pulled out. I don't recommend even thinking of attempting this unless you absoloutly have no other choice and if you've read about all the complications, signs, and what to look for when your removing yourself.

Why wouldn't the doctor take it out?
