I created an account just so I could post to this thread. I'm so grateful for everyone posting and giving me the courage to pull this thing out on my own. I've had the Mirena for several years, have tried everything to lose weight with no success, feel bloated all the time, had those weird phantom kicks other people have mentioned and a constant discharge. Well I'd finally had enough and didn't want to wait 2 weeks to see my OBGYN. I pulled it out 20 minutes ago and it was super easy! I squatted down, reached up for the strings, dug my nails into the string to get some traction, pulled out very slowly and boom there it was! No pain or cramps and no spotting yet. Looking forward to feeling normal again and finally getting this weight off!
