Just wanted to let people know that there are many people that are trying to get a class action lawsuit going against mirena because so many women are suffering from the adverse side effects of this product. One of the sites you can look at and contact the attorney is, http://www.mirenaclassaction.com/
I know there are plenty of people that have Mirena and are fine but I am not one of them. I have been experiencing heart palpitations, dizziness, moodiness, anxiety, sleepiness, headaches and more. If anyone else that has the Mirena has been experiencing any of these side effects you should consider that it could be tied to your Mirena. Here are some helpful websites about the side effects people have been experiencing. I hope at least someone finds this useful.
I am getting mine removed on the 24th and I hope I can get back to normal.

wow now i'm glad i didn't get it after my first pregnancy
i always knew something was up with that thing
watching as well.. i have mirena..
I hate Mirena. I need to get it taken out.
A friend had it put in not too long ago and she keeps getting crazy cysts on her cervix and insane migraines.
I had ALL OF THAT, EXCEPT THE BACKNE
Haven't I said it's risky?
Also wanted to post this site as well. It's a petition site for the Mirena.
I didnt want mirena.. Too risky if you ask me.
The commercial said you have to have one child - why? I always thought something could go wrong and scar tissue would build up and block my tubes or something preventing me to have more kids.
Go for the Implanon :D
I was going to get it next week. I haven't been so sure about it the past few weeks. Now I am going to go with something else.
