Thanks that was helpful, re the calcium potassium ratio I have not really looked into this in depth, should I be increasing my potassium levels now? Is there any supplements foods etc I should introduce or eliminate ? I have not had a hair mineral test mainly due to finances but I realise this would be very beneficial. Re my appt with gp last week she suggested I will be fine to conceive and believes no harm will come to baby with my subclinical hypothyroidism, initially during the consultation she was goin to refer me to an endocrinologist however after consulting with a colleague they have decided to wait until I'm pregnant but have said I will need close mointering as it is likely i will develop overt hypothyroidism once pregnant.

Doctors and drug companies have know for decades, since the 1960s, that copper in the IUD will cause these symptoms. Those copper IUDs leak copper into the system which causes an imbalance of minerals in the body. This is essentially a poison. Copper is needed for iron balance in the blood, but it can throw off the zinc in the body.

All IUDs carry the danger of PID in addition to the copper problems. The Dalkon Shield did not contain copper yet it is off the market for a very good reason.

Doctors have known this since before you were born. Ask your doctor why you were not warned about these dangers.

WOW! My mind is being blown right now. The only form of birth control I've ever used is an IUD. First, I had Mirena and now Paragard. I had side effects while on Mirena, but most of all wanted my period again.

Got Paragard a year ago and I hadn't thought about a correlation between my IUD and the rut I've been in... probably because I was already kind of in a rut last year, but it hadn't evolved into how bad it's gotten over the past six months.

Does anyone have links to these studies? I'd love to read more about this (if not, I can just Google it).

Wow I've been having just about every single one of the symptoms that everyone on this forum have described and I too had the copper IUD implanted about 7 months ago. Definitely getting it removed as soon as I can find a local doctor to do so. I only got the IUD because I had to get on birth control like asap since I had a baby in July of 2014 and started dating a man whom is dead-set against condom use. He wants me pregnant but I'm not ready for it yet again. Hormonal birth control is out of the question because I was on the Depo-shot for about a year as a teenager which almost caused me to be infertile since it stopped my menstrual cycle for 14 years after I went off the Depo. So I guess what I'm saying is, does anyone have any suggestions for an alternative contraception that ISN'T an IUD, condoms, or any hormonal birth control?!? I'm at a loss :/
