I got the mirena. Had 6 weeks of spotting to light flow, pretty much immediately after that stopped I started cramping. I've been cramping daily for 2 months now, have recently gotten worse (ibuprofen-worthy on some days) and have periods of nausea but no symptoms of being sick so I suspect it may be the IUD. On top of that, it makes my meds less effective. So... I WANT IT OUT!!!!!!!
For those who had it removed: how painful was it? Do you think you could've walked a mile afterward with just a little rest? Anything I should know?
My midwife doesn't do IUDs anymore (though I'll have to double check that she doesn't do removal) and her backup OB is okay but he's a mile walk from the nearest bus stop which I could care less about if I wasn't getting something yanked out of my uterus, you know? I did mostly okay after the insertion (I sat down for about an hour) but before that when I got my colposcopy done I sat down halfway through the walk and cried from the pain. Considering going to a crappy but closer place if it's going to be bad, which is why I ask.
