Hi, I have come across many websites after promising my husband of 13 years that I would look into the side effects of my IUD. I had NO idea! I thought it was only me! Reading all of this almost made me cry to know that there might NOT be anything wrong with me and just by removing this IUD that I can get back to a normal life! I have had it for almost 2 years, and the last year has been an emotional rollercoaster of all kinds of events! The only good thing that I can say came out of it is that I didn't get pregnant in the last 2 years (have 4 boys already) and I haven't had to deal with a "real" period in about that same amount of time! HOWEVER...I HAVE HAD TO DEAL WITH OTHER THINGS, THAT I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW EXISTED WITH THE USE OF THIS DEVICE!!! Including, but not limited to, SEVERE fatigue, cramps, SEVERE acne (never even had as a teen!), headaches, SEVERE mood changes and swings (as by the pleas of my husband), loss of of the hair on my head, and regrowth of hair in places women shouldn't have hair, i.e. breasts and chin, vaginal dryness, loss of libido (my poor husband), SEVERE depression and worthlessness, and those are just the ones that I have been able to see myself now. I am sure if they were pointed out to my by a loved one or friend I could probably link that with the IUD also. MEN~ do NOT let or make your wife get this...she could NOT be the same person you thought you knew and it is a rough and rocky ride! WOMEN~ I beg you, do NOT get this, it is horrible! Why take the chance? I have hated myself, my husband, my kids, my extended family and friends and couldn't figure out what was "wrong" with me. I am getting mine out Monday Sept. 24, 2007, and hopefully I can get back to the life I had known before these last 2 years of insanity took over. Good luck all and GOD Bless!
