Mirena IUD falling out after 4 1/2 years! Inezmonroe Connecticut 7 posts
12th Oct '11

Today I woke up to the most horrible cramping pain in my side. The pain was so bad that I could not help my daughter get ready for school this morning. I could barely move, I had to slide down the steps and crawl back up them. Then it finally dawned on me to check my Mirena. I checked it only to find that my Mirena strings were hangin literally out of my vagina and my cevix was tightly closed, after freaking out I called my OB and was told to come in. After taking a HOT bath, I checked my Mirena again to find that my cervix had open back up and the bottom of my Mirena was sticking out. I headed to my appointment only to be told "Yes the Mirena is falling out, however we can not do anything until we schedule you for an ultrasound and that can take up to a week" And on top of that I MAYBE PREGNANT! Pregnancy with a Mirenaa is bad. Pregnancy with a Mirena that is falling out and a opeing cervix is even worst! I am freaking out, scared and worried. I may have a baby inside of me that is in complete danger right now and there is nothing I can do about it until a week from now. I just want to cry right now!!!



Has this happen to anyone else?



My advice to anyone that is planning to have a Mirena IUD placed in, DO NOT DO IT!!! This thing is horrible, this is NOT my first issue with this!

Ya I hated the Mirena. It migrated in my uterus and began attaching to my uterine wall. I had to have it removed. STAY AWAY from Mirena!

I have been having pain for a good while now, about a year or so. Everytime I went to the doctors I was told that it wasn't the Mirena and to take some pain medicine. This is horrible. I gave birth to my daughter naturally and compared to the pain I am in now, that was nothing. This thing is horrible.

i would recomend taking out the marena and switching to paragaurd. the mirena caused excruciating pain with me and the other women in my family and alot of the women i have talked to that have had the mirena said that they had real bad pain also. people react differently to the iud, but most say mirena is horrible.

I am scared to get the Paragaurd after going through this. I was thinking about switching to the Nuva Ring if I am not pregnant right now.

Hey ladies, just wanted to give you an update. The Mirena is out! I'm still experiencing some pain. And I am waiting on the results of the pregnancy test. I am so relieved that it is gone! I will come back and let you know the result of the pregnancy test :)
