Hi all, i'm posting to warn any future users and current users about my horrible experience with Mirena. I had mine inserted in Sept '09 and i was really excited about all the wonderful benefits my OB described and the convenience of an IUD. WAS I EVER WRONG! Around Thanksgiving, i turned into an entirely different person and i lost all interest in all the things i once loved. The severe depression i experienced was to the point where i could barely function. I already had an anxiety disorder but while on Mirena, it made my anxiety so severe that i would just shake throughout the day for no reason. I had a horrible sense of impending doom constantly. I thought i was losing my mind!!! I also experienced a really tough time concentrating on anything---like i lived in a fog...very strange sensation. My sex drive also totally diminished to nonexistent. My hubby took me away for a romantic Valentine's day getaway last weekend and all i did was cry, have massive panic attacks and shaking and was constantly tired. i knew this was the last straw...something was horribly wrong with me. I have a great life and had no reason to be feeling this way. This is when i finally put things together---it was my Mirena! I researched Mirena and side effects and found this site....hallelujah, i'm not crazy! I called immediately and had it removed the next day! I had a HUGE sense of relief upon removal and i swear i felt better that night! I'm now 5 days post removal and my hubby has already commented that i'm starting to act like my old self again. my symptoms aren't entirely gone yet but it is so much better! I might be experiencing some crash right now as today i feel a little weepy and i've had flu-like symptoms with body aches and chills but no fever. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not get Mirena inserted. I never post on blogs but felt absolutely compelled to warn others after my horrendous experience. I have learned 2 very important lessons since my Mirena: 1) doctors don't know everything and 2) i will ALWAYS do my research on any medication in the future before i put it in my body. My experience with Mirena has been nothing short of sheer hell and i could cry right now just thinking of what it has done to my mind, body and spirit over the last 5months! I would be happy to join the lawsuit against Mirena, it is one evil device!
