Well, I first posted when I got the Mirena out on Feb 13th and I just wanted to give an update.
I am STILL having migraine type headaches and a "morning sickness" of sorts. The moodiness is NO MORE! YIPEE!!!
I was wondering if anyone can share what their periods were like after taking it out? I'm late this month and I figured I might be. I've actually been having so many pregnancy type symptoms (which are recorded side effects of Mirena) that I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative.
My doctor told me that Mirena can be ineffective at preventing pregnancy in the first 10 days and she told me to use condoms during that time. However, my dh and I did have unprotected sex once during the first 10 days after the bleeding subsided. So, I guess it's in the back of my head that there could be a pregnancy. I guess what is concerning me the most is that the doctor said that IF you do become pregnant on Mirena that the egg would never be able to settle in the uterus and it would stay in the tubes and be fertilized there which leads to ectopic pregnancy. I know that's more than likely not the case, but being that it was suspected that I've already had an ectopic pregnancy ( i lost it too early to truly know) I'm kind of concerned.
Anyone have anything like pregnancy happen after Mirena???? Or ON Mirena? I know they say it's as effective as tubes tied, but I'm just curious.
And how are the cycles after Mirena? Anyone notice a difference in length?
Thanks for all your support and encouragement ladies :-)
