I got my Mirena 6 weeks after having my daughter. At first I thought it was great, but it's been over 2 and a half years now and my 'symptoms' seem to be getting so much worse. I have never had any type of mood swings or irritability prior to having Mirena.
At first I assumed it was due to having a new baby, but I still get horribly irritable, like 50 times worse than when I first got Mirena. I am guessing it is due to the Mirena since I have had no other changes. I feel so bad for my husband and daughter because I get mad so easily now. Today a woman walked past me in the store and I got so mad that she got too close to me that I actually said something and gave her a dirty look. And things like that have been getting to me so much for the past couple of weeks that it is driving me crazy and I just want this thing out.
I really want to know if anyone has had a good mood change after getting Mirena out, because I love the idea of not having to worry about birth control all the time, and I would hate to get it taken out early if that is not the problem, I just can't think of anything else it would be. Anything info helps! Thank you!
