I had it removed due to the weight gain, I always felt pregnant when I was on it because of the side effects, but never got pregnant, thankfully. I liked not haing my period though!! Just gained a lot of weight.

Quoting Shanieka:

Thanks!! I have just been feeling like I did when I found out that I was prego. I was just wondering if anyone else was having these same problems!



For a few months I had that "fullness" feeling in my abdomen and breasts, but it went away. I think it was just my body adjusting to the hormone.



 



If you're getting overly naseous and getting headaches often (I have been this whole pregnancy) then I would recommend you call your doc. You could be having an adverse reaction to it, or possibly an infection.

I had it for a while. I think I may have been one of the lucky ones, because I had no side effects. Everyone I've ever spoken to after I got it (I was just 20) has told me they had horrible mood swings, weight gain, or just felt awful.



I read the entire warning section with my doctor before deciding on it, and it seemed on the same level as the pill to me. It seemed ideal as a low dose option since I couldn't remember to do the pill, or even the depo shot every 3 months, so the Mirena was perfect for me at that point as I was still in college and not ready for another child then.



I had it removed almost 2 yrs ago, and had no issues from that either.
