ok so i got my IUD removed after having it the full five years thursday morning. it came out without any pain no pintch no spotting no nothing. Then I got my BC pills and about 7 that night i started cramping no big deal and friday was no big deal some symptoms that AF may come but no big deal then i woke up today and OMGOSH i feel like i have been hit with a mack truck, i dont have the want to do anything but sleep. I started my pills like the doc said on thursday around noon. He recomended i have a few complete cycles to clean out my system and so that we could better calculate estimated due date. but my gosh i feel horrible! i dont remember ever feeling like this with my AF visit. Is this normal for those of you who have had ur IUD removed?

maybe you have a bug and timing is just a coincidence?

I had my IUD removed after 2 years and had no problems at all. Periods came back just like normal

 I had my Mirena removed on 6/14/13, it was year 8 (at 5 yrs I had a new one when the 1st was removed).  Prior to removal I had been researching ttc after iud removal and rkept seeing "mirena crash" mentioned so I researched that.  I found a good # of women who had bad cramps, headaches, PMS like symptoms etc....they pretty much felt like hell warmed over for a few days.

At my appt I asked my obgyn whay he knew about the Mirena crash (he was the senior obgyn and seemed very knowledgeable).  He had never heard of it and said the hormone released was so little that the human body really does not detect the change.  But he did say that depending on my bodies sensitivity levels, I may feel a little worse when AF comes.

If AF doesn't come and your discomfort persists, call you obgyn and let them know.  In the mean time research Mirena crash, you will find a lot of info from others who have gone through it and it may ease your mind or help you get through it
