hi. i had a mirena inseted december 6th last year, it was very painful and the doc said it was normal. its been in almost a year now and still getting sharp stabbing pains in my lower abdomen, i feel it in my lower back too. its excruciating and i just cant do anything when it occurs. i keep trying to get it out but my doctor said that i should "persevere" with it. im at the end of my tether with it now as i cant even exercise without being in pain. i havent had any children so thats probably why it hurt as much as it did when they inserted it, but i know loads of people who havent had children (or had children but not vaginally) who have had it inserted and not had these problems. i feel so depressed most days as its so painful and i cant cope with the stress of it anymore :( im really scared of having it out as i dont know what to expect, but it just has to come out. has anyone else had these severe pains before? and if you have had it removed was it painful? i hear about people who have removed it themselves but im just a big wuss and daren't do it myself lol also, can anyone recommend any contraceptive that isnt inserted vaginally? sorry if tmi, thanks in advance.
