So I've had the mirena for a few months now, and i liked it except for the fact that I bled all the time but I heard that was normal. But the past month or so I kept getting this really sharp pain in my uterus and thought maybe I had a cyst. Then as the days progressed the pain got so intense I couldn't pick up my son or walk. So I went to the OB and she pressed down on the spot, and told me to get an ultrasound. Well the pain got worse so I went to the ER and turns out... my mirena was 3/4 of the way out, sitting half way through my cervix. The doctor there said that was probably the cause of the pain and that it probably caused the bleeding and I was lucky I wasn't pregnant.
So long story short, she pulled my mirena out and I now don't know what to do. Birth control didn't do anything to prevent my pregnancy before and I hate condoms. Should I just try to get another mirena, or get back on birth control and use condoms at the same time? Ugh this sucks!
There are other forms of BC such as the Nuva Ring, Depo shot, the Patch, etc. Try something else? I didn't care for condoms either and pills made me moody/emotional.
