First off im new! I have an amazing 14mo girl and am getting married in aug. To my so of 5 years. I am 20 years old and am on my way to becoming a licensed EMT..... Now down to business. I have mirena iud and have had it for almost a year. Almost immediately (after two months of bleeding) i started having problems. I had numerous ct scans, ultra sounds, pregnancy test to figure out what my problem is/was but idk why i never realized it before... It must be the iud. Ive been having horrible stomach cramps,what feels like cervical pain that radiates down my leg,, 2 cysts that looked complex then disappeared,mood swings from hell,and ive been the same weight that i was at after i had my daughter.(which might i add is not okay) now your wondering well then get it out. I would of but i havent put the pices together till now amd idk what is a good form of bc besides this.(and this is not good) bc honestly stops working every pill ive tried has failed and i cant go cold turkey because im fertal mertal. I need experiances advice something. I am going to make an ob appt. With a new ob with in the week because now i think i have an infection because (tmi) im having watery clear discharge that smells so foul. Uh its horrible. 8'( thanks in advance!

Maybe get the copper IUD instead? There are so many other options out there too, that are not the pill. I would definitely discuss it with your doctor when you go in and see what he/she says.

Im sorry you are having issues. I think you definitely need to have a discussion with your gyn about other options.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!

 It sounds like you should talk to your doctor about other options that won't cause you so many problems. Sometimes it can take 4 or 5 tries to find the best method of birth control that works for you without all of those side effects. Good luck!! ((HUGS))

I hated Mirena with a passion . Not even a week and I had UTI. I ended up back on the pill. Get that thing out and good luck!
