Today after being in a lot of pain down below and in my side, I checked for my strings and they are missing.

I am going in tomorrow. 

I read a lot of reviews and now I'm scared. Anyone else want to share their stories?

Yeah I hated the Mirena. I had it for less than 6 months. I bled a ton and then it came out

I have a titled uterus and I don't think my doc noticed that. This is personal but did you feel like you were punched down there?

I've had mine just over 4 months I spot a lot but not bleed but in the last week I'm in so much pain down there that I'm nearly laid up in a ball most of the day.

Mine lacerated my uterus, gave me a horrible infection, and I lost my job because of having to go to the hospital after nearly passing out from dehydration and infection. 

Another 24 hours and a hysterectomy would have been needed.
