I had a copper IUD in for about 2 and half years. About a year before I had it out I started having frequent urination issues. They would get better and then worse and better and then worse. I went to a number of doctors. All of them told me it couldn't be my IUD. One actually basically diagnosed me with hysteria. I had a cystoscopy (very painful) and the doctors still couldn't figure anything out. They said it wasn't IC or overactive bladder. After getting the IUD out I noticed my frequency got much better. I felt generally okay, but any time I drink any alcohol at all I still get horrible urgency to the point where I feel like I have a UTI for days after.
I'm a pretty sensitive person physically, but I got the IUD out almost 2 months ago now. Is this the copper still balancing out in my system? How long has it taken other people to recover from the side effects?
How are you doing now?
