Hello everyone I am new at this place and I really need your help on my situation because I don't know what to do anymore!!!!. Here is my story. A year ago I had a IUD mirena placed after giving birth of my first baby. Since I have no insurance and not working, I have the IUD for free. Before the insertion I asked the nurse if I can remove it before 5 years if I decide to have another baby and she said now, the IUD is very expansive and if I decide to place it it will stay there for 5 years. I agreed to let her place it knowing that if I decide to remove it before that I can go at any other office. The nightmare started the moment she inserted it. I was having terrible cramps. She said it normal and gave me a pain relief. after 10mn. The pain became worse later and I ended up at the ER. After a ultrasound, and pain relief they release me saying the IUD appears to be in the proper place. A week later a nurse of the ER called me telling me that I need to go see back my physician who puts the IUD in because it does not look normal. I when back to my physician explaining what happen but she did not look to verify if the strings are there but just said it is normal I have pain, it is the body response's. The pain goes and came and it is in my left side. I feel like something is pinching me there and it is very sharp and painful. So since last year I have been trying to have it remove and I have seen 4 physicians so far and they say they can't do nothing I have to go back to the place I have it placed. And when I go there they do nothing I feel like they don't trust me and they think I just want to remove it. Actually I have spent all my savings in this stuff and I can't afford it anymore. The last x-ray I did says it is in the left side of my pelvic but they can't localize it with a ultrasound. I am really considering going to a ER and stay there until they remove it but I don't have insurance and really can't effort other medical bills more then what I have now. I have try to take an appointment to the hospitals but the appointment are too far. So please help me find a solution I am really disoriented and don't know what to do. I don't what to think about the fact that maybe I will never have other children I just got married and have 25 years.
Thank you for reading. Sorry if my English is not very good I just moved to the USA 2years ago.
