I am considering getting my Mirena IUD removed. I was wondering if anyone else has ahd this done and what kinds of side effects have you had as a result.

Thanks!

 I only had mine in for 4 months it was the worst thing I ever did having it put in! they removed it because of complications on my end! Sorry no help but I hated mine good luck getting it out, my period went back to normal and the removal was way easier than the insertion!

Um for me it hurt like hell coming out...but it did going in too.  But when I got it removed my period started to regulate, I wasn't bitchy, my cramps stopped and my weight actually started to fall off when I worked out.  But other than that, no side effects.

maybe a little spotting and no more hormone headaches..those were my only s/e's (I had mine in for 2.5 years)

i have had it, and i didn't have any bad side effects. just some minimal cramping. but just so you know 2 months after getting it removed i was pregnant with twins, so it might have contributed to my extreme fertility.

My Mirena hurt a lot and I had mine removed because my skin actually grew over my string. I had no problems having it come out. I had maybe a few hours of cramping and then it was over. I did not hurt when I had sex anymore and I actually started having a period again! It was the best decision!
