I'm so thankful all of my side effects happened within just a few days after having this damn thing inserted! I have a 2 yr. old and a 4 month old. Don't need any more kids! My 4 month old is a pill baby so I thought, and was told that mirena was PERFECT for me! WHAT A HUGE CROCK! I had it done March 11, 2010. In this past month I have had 3 ekg's in one day, an ambulance ride because I thought I was having a heart attack at 24, have had to save me pee in my fridge and had a ct scan. On top of all of that, they probably have tested a gallon of my blood! As well as thoughts of me being such a burden to my family, I wanted to kill myself! I LOVE my family and my life, but felt so low, and scared to be alone with my children in fear of having a seizure or stroke. Felt like I couldn't be the mom I should be. Not to mention, hair loss, every joint, muscle, even fat aches! Moodiness beyond belief! I also would get a flush feeling wave accompanied by extreme lightheadedness. Heart palpitations they can NEVER catch with massive anxiety! I thankfully am getting it out tomorrow at 3:45pm, and that time could not come sooner! I was told mirena had very few and rare side effects. The side effects I have been experiencing were definitely not on the list! I am so upset with my doctor and Bayer. In order for them to say "Hey, this is good for 5 yrs!" they had to of spent SEVERAL years of studying it and just not listed everything. If women knew about all the problems they could possibly have, I highly doubt it would be such a popular product. And definitely should not be represented as a "wonder drug" for birth control. It should be taken off the market and Bayer should be held responsible for all the hell there product has put so many women, including myself, through. I thought I was crazy! But I'm not, and neither are any of you! This is a very real issue, and a horrible one at that!
