I just had my Mirena removed today after 4 years. I had started to get a lot of abdominal pain, fluid retention, and very bad mood swings. On removal I had terrible pain . The Dr said it began to attach the the uterine wall. Glad I listened to my body and got it out when I did.
I’ve been having let abdominal cramping for quite some time. I’ve had the Morena for 3 years. Don’t know if I should go to the doctor or not
I have had the mirena iud for 8 years and I seem to be spotting more often even after my period. I have also been cramping more.
from what i have been told the mirena IUD is only good for 5 years… If you have not had it replaced with a new one it is no longer effective to its full capacity.
I have had a mirena surgically removed on March 10 2015 due to it being embedded and feel like I have been having complications during and afterwards. I fear that I will not be able to conceive again.
I have had my Mirena since 2012. When it is that time of the month my right side of my pelvic hurts and I spot. I have been trying to get it removed but the place I got it on at will not remove it. I think it is embedded its self. when should I do
About 2 years ago, the results of my annual pelvic exam stated that I had a low positioned IUD. So, my doctor referred me to the Naval Hospital. I went there, was examined & told everything was ok. A year later, I went back to my doctor for my annual pelvic exam again and was told that my situation was not ok and that he referred me expecting that the specialized doctor would treat my condition. We moved to CA in August (a few weeks after my doctor’s visit) due to my husband’s job relocating us, so I was not able to be treated in FL. At that point, I was already experiencing some abdominal pain and irregular bleeding between periods, but it wasn’t severe at that time; however, over time the pain became worse and worse. My primary care doctor here in CA ordered for me to have an ultrasound done to see what was causing my stomach pains and she told me that my mirena was in the wrong position and moving into a place it shouldn’t be. So, she referred me to an OB/GYN. On my 1st visit to the OB/GYN, 4/22/15, after the doctor saw the results from my ultrasound, she decided to remove the mirena right away because the ultrasound showed that it was embedded. When she took it out, it was very, very painful. About 2 days later I began seeing a brown discharge (I’m guessing old blood). Off and on throughout the day, and every night since the removal, I have been tossing & turning at night and in the early morning due to severe abdominal pains. I called her on 4/27/15 to tell her about the pain and was told to take ibuprofen, not have sex, and that if the pain did not go away in 5 days to call back. Late Saturday night, after the 5 days restriction from having sex, my husband and I had sex. During was very uncomfortable and afterwards we realized that I was bleeding. Early Sunday morning, I found myself curled up in bed and in a lot of pain. After the pain went away, I was ok until I went back to bed that night. So, because of the pain & discomfort, I have no desire to have sex. Tossing & turning all Sunday night, I awoke on Monday morning, in pain which continued throughout the day. Monday night same thing, but Tuesday during the day was much better. Last night, same thing, tossing & turning from abdominal pain and also continued throughout part of the morning. I got out of bed, went to the bathroom and thick, dark blood was in my pad. I bleed so often that I have to wear at least a pantiliner every day and every night because I don’t know when I’m going to need it. But, I have been and am still going through a lot. So, I will be calling my doctor back today.
