Overall I'm not a very e emotional person. I wore sunglasses at my grandpa burial to hide the fact I wasn't crying, and I was close to him. Last week I got the mirena put in and seems like since then my emotions are everywhere. DH and I went out to lunch and something he said I'd normally joke around with him I snapped at him instead about it. Every little thing has me in tears. Which is abnormal for me. I always feel like he hates me cuz it seems like we never talk anymore. Did anyone have problems with emotions with the mirena?

Birth control in general can do that.

I just went off my BC last week (not mirena, it was a pill), and I've been an emotional mess. My hormones are regulating. Yours are adjusting to the extra hormones from the BC. It should calm down in a couple weeks. If it doesn't, talk to your dr, it may not be the best BC for you.

It's the only one I can use. Only other option is getting tubes tied.

Why is that? There are other implants that are non-hormonal. I believe they work the same way just without the added hormones.

The medicine I take causes birth control to break down faster and leave the body quicker so like the pill for example on a normal person is like 99% effective. For me it's more like 40%

I see. So maybe the non-hormonal ParaGard IUD would be better. It is aka a copper IUD.

But just give it a couple more weeks to see if your emotions level out. I now I'd hate to go through years of emotions if it was BC caused.

The first few weeks can be a difficult adjustment and it sounds like you have some extra life stressors as well. I would give yourself time to adjust to the passing of your grandfather and adjust to the birth control.
The paraguard is a non hormonal iud which sounds like it may be a better option for you.

He passed in 2011 I was just using that as an example of my lack of emotions normally. As far as the paraguard I choose the mirena over it cuz I heard it causes heavier periods which I didn't want to deal with. I guess if the mirena doesn't I can look into it more

Supposed to go back to the doctor in a month so we'll see how it goes until then. I definitely wouldn't deal with it for years though
