Hello all... well, where do I start? I have stumbled on this website purely by accident (is this a UK or US site?). Anyway, as a family planning trained nurse, I thought I knew everything about Mirena. I had one in between my first and second child (big gap!) as the oral contraception was no longer suitable. Not many side effects then, ws quite happy with it. Baby no 2 came along, so thought I would just get a Mirena back in (put in Dec 2008, so just over a year). More spotting this time, but less cramping following insertion - was good to go. Had building work done at house last year, was very stressful. I was very low, tearful and generally not coping and had to take time off work (put down to stress). I have been thinking about hormones and their role (I am 44 and watching too much Oprah!).... got to thinking about this Mirena thing inside me after chatting to a patient who was having the same symptoms (she is the same age as me). After reading several of your comments, I can totally relate to you all. My symptoms are: heart palpitations (awful at the end of last year, been investigated, was SVT and non benign, but felt very real), cravings for sweet things, low mood, exhaustion, skin reaction (itchy eyes and shins), and ANGER (the worst thing! I am like something possessed!). My doctor is not taking me seriously, my family is finished, I want to get this thing out! How do I get my husband to agree to a vasectomy?
