In T minus four hours and fifteen minutes, my Mirena will be GONE for good. I woke up in excruciating pain last night, i'm seeing a different doctor than the one I originally have and I don't care what they advise. I'm not living in pain anymore. I'm thrilled. Almost a year of hell will be over!!

Oh and I don't care how much it costs at this point. It's coming out. I'll deal with the bills later. Use tax return if I have too.

I've heard soooo many horror stories about that thing.  I had a friend that had it puncture the top of her uterus.  ouch.

because the doctor who put it in wouldn't take it out when I asked. I didn't have insurance. Still don't but the pain has increased to the point it doesn't matter. Taxes are coming. I'll deal with the bill in a couple months. I got the run around when I did have insurance and then didn't have any.

a friend of mine had hers for almost the full five years and two weeks ago it punctured her uterus. It also caused huge cysts on one of her ovaries. Another friend got the same infection I did and now she can't have kids. Another friend also got cysts. Ya. Wish I would've known earlier. Never would have gotten this.

What were your symptoms? I have been getting pains, it almost feels like something is scraping on my uterus but the doc just laughed at me, she said the IUD is not big enough. That's why I want a different doc. She also told me that one of my ovaries is enlarged, I wonder if it's because of this?

For some reason it didn't quote. But ya. I've had a lot of really bad cramping when I ovulate. Not on my period though. My period last 10-15 days instead of 3-5. I have a lot of pain that seems to be focused on the lower left side of my pelvis. Sharp shooting pains, lots of pressure. I get really bad headaches when I get the cramping too.
