Mirena Maternity Trousers, Sensitive Gums, Exercise Regime, Depo Injection, Dull Ache

I'm so glad I found this site, I only wish I'd found it 2 weeks ago before I had this wretched thing fitted. I had my Mirena put in 10 weeks after my little girl was born as I was told it was safe to use whilst breastfeeding. That was on Friday 28th August '09, it's now Tuesday 8th September and so far I've experienced:
head aches, I don't normally get headaches
fuzzy vision and tension right across the front of my head, eyes and upper face,
constant bleeding, not particularly heavy but still
extreme fatigue when I was getting back to stage after a difficult birth where I felt like I had enough energy to resume my otherwise vigorous exercise regime
constant lower back pain
swelling in my hands and feet so I cannot remove my rings, they were loose before.
bloating in my stomach so I can't even get my maternity trousers fastened!
feeling of anxiety and can't be bothered to do anything which is very uncharacteristic
depression to the point of crying ALL DAY yesterday, I never cry, not even when Bambi's mum got shot!
no libido whatsoever, what's the point in this thing if you don't want to have sex anyway?!?
falling hair and bleeding, sensitive gums
a dull ache over my whole body
and last but not least I've put on 9lbs in 10 days, I'm supposed to be trying wedding dresses on in just over a week, that wont be happening now!!!
If I can't get this thing out myself this afternoon I'm going to the doctors to have it taken out tomorrow!!!
I feel like I'm going mad, I've felt like this before (though never to this extreme) on the pill and the depo injection all of which contain levonorgestrel, coincidence, I don't think so! how on earth did this drug get licensed?!?
My fiance is a chemist and works for a big pharmaceutical company and said that although the dosage of the drug is much smaller, because it's absorbed locally it has a much more potent effect on the body than the pill because a great deal of the hormone in the pill will be broken down in the stomach before it's absorbed into your system, they don't tell you that on the leaflet do they! I'll be switching to condoms until I'm no longer breastfeeding and then back to a non levonorgestrel pill. I CAN'T WAIT TO BE BACK TO NORMAL and it's only been in there for 10 days!!!
