Calling all long term mirena users!!! TecoaJameson&Me Due September 7 (girl); 2 kids; 2 angel babies; Charlottesville, Virginia 4480 posts

I have had mirena twice now. Once with my daughter now after my son. Have increasingly over the years of having it gained weight and my depression anxiety anger and OCD have gone from like shitty to catastrophic! I have really got so low that I don't know what to do anymore. I am on zoloft & adderral for the anxiety and the major OCD. I also think I have a mild case of PTSD due to having OCD and then having my son the way I did being out of control and twice when he was an infant having 2 big incidents. One with his bassinet another a car accident. Very hard on my head. So enough bullshit but has anyone had to deal with this having an iud.... I am scared cuz I can't take birth control cuz of the nasty side effects and the lack of effectiveness. I dont want my tubes tied and I don't want my husband to get snipped yet due to us possibly wanting another down the line. I just can't take this anymore! I am more hard on myself then anything and I scare me cuz im fearless with myself. Like superman syndrome. I know this isnt the normal me so what is going on!!! I have had help just maybe not the right help? I want to feel normal again! Not to mention I am seriously a b***h to my husband I yell at him cuss at him and would run through him if I got mad enough. I love him but I just don't care sometimes how mean I am.

Mirena is the devil. I lost my period, my hair started falling out, nosebleeds, gums bleeding, pain during intercourse, nightsweats, mood swings. The shit ejected itself after 6 months of horror. A full year and a half later I am beginning to feel normal. I say take it out and chart your fertility.

I'm going to have to do something cuz if I don't I am scared what I could do to myself. I keep thinkin I would be better off if I wasn't here to suffer so much and this isn't me! I love my kids and am extremely selfish with them! I don't want anyone raising them but me. I just can't take it anymore! I want to feel like me again!!!

Yes definitely do something. I have felt just as low as you, and had similar thoughts. Antidepressants can help too, but to start with the Mirena can really f**k with your feelings.

I don't have it but my dr is refusing to give it to anyone in his office because of the dangers of it. I'm so glad he told me no after reading your stories!

I'm fairly certain there's a class-action lawsuit pending against them so no, you are definitely not alone.



You wanna know something else scary? They make KNOCKOFF Mirena IUD's. Meaning a shady company in China or elsewhere makes fakes and sells them to doctors offices in bulk. My very own OB-Gyn got investigated and reprimanded because they bought a bunch of fakes and implanted them in a bunch of women. They thought they were saving money.

No your not ): I think I'm going to call my doctor this morning. I got to the point that I told my husband after I can get a job and save some money DS and I were leaving and we would get a divorce. I didn't mean it but I know if I was without him I wouldn't be as grounded as I am.. But yeah.. If you ever need to talk PM and we can work through it k?

I've seen the class action law suit thing but it was just about it coming out, causing infertility, and growing into uterean walls. It didn't say anything about what we are experienceing..

Go smoke some weed! That always takes away my anxiety. I just don't blaze in the house.
