I am 32 years old and I have had Mirena since Oct 2006. I did fine with it at the beginning, but now I am not doing so well. I still have Mirena in me and I am scheduled for it to be removed in a couple of weeks. That's the soonest they could get me in. I cannot wait to get it out of me. I pray I will start feeling better because I cannot go on feeling as bad as I do everyday of my life. My symptoms are very similar to others that I have read. I gained weight right after I had it put in me and I have always weighed in around 125 lbs then I put on 15 to 20 lbs. I didn't realize this was the reason I gained. Not only did I gain excessive weight, but I also developed an eating disorder with all the weight I gained. I could not keep the weight off me and now I battle bulimia. Which is a horrible disease that has about destroyed my life. Although bulimia has been a battle for me I have started to over come it and I am doing 10x better than I was 2 yrs ago. As far as the Mirena goes I have dizzy spells everyday. It's not a couple of dizzy spells a day it's several. My hair comes out in hand fulls. My completion is not as pretty as it once was. I now have a little acne when acne was never any problems for me. I am tired and moody. I cry easy and I get depressed and down on myself. I do not have a period anymore but I will spot a little blood. It does seem like I have more discharge now as well. I get very bloated and my body aches. I hope I will start feeling better and getting my life back to where I want it. I want to feel good again. When I had Mirena put in me it was painful. I hope it is not as painful to have it removed as it was having it put in. I hope everyone who reads this feels better or starts to feel better. I am glad I found this site and that I can relate to several. I wish the best for everyone, because we all deserve to be at the top of our game unfortunately Mirena has brought several of us down. I pray for all of you.
