ALL MY IUD'S FAULT!

I have been having major spouts of depression I am never happy

Have absolutely no sex drive. Don't even want to kiss!

And I've been losing globs of hair! Rediculous amounts.

After some research I have come to see I am not alone!! That these are very common symptoms of the mirena! And most women say within hours and days of removal they are back to them old selves!

Needless to say I am getting it removed next week! If it all still continues which I'm betting/hoping it won't then I will seek further help..

But have any of you gone through this??

Oh wow.  No I haven't but now I am really glad I went with Implanon or Nexplanon (whatever it is called).  I hope you get back to your normal self quick though.  :(

I have depression sometimes and a low sex drive due to the mirena but its the price we pay for never having to worry about birth control. I have had mine for 4 years and still like it.

I hope that you start feeling more yourself after removal. How long have you had it?

I had the same issues with mirena.  It was awful!!  I had it for almost 2 years - within a few days of having it removed- I WAS BACK TO NORMAL!! :)   I personally would not recommend that to anyone, my dr even told me she was sorry for suggesting it in the first place.

It doesn't happen to everyone.

I have a few friends who are on it and
All they have experienced is the low sex drive and not the depression.

Just pay attention to your body :)

I can't stand it! I just can't wait to feel happy again. It's good to know that within days you felt better! I'm hoping for the same result!
