I had The copper iud inserted 6 wks after my third son was born 5-1-08 everything seemed fine up up until the last few months in late August I became very ill in and out of the hospital with headaches & sinus issues and just not feeling myself. So I have been killing myself trying to figure out what was wrong with me... headaches all day everyday, neck pain, body aches, weight gain, panic attacks, constant outburst to my children and husband, skin spots and nasty pimples (in which I have been seeing a dermatoligist for 2 or so years) not sleeping at night and when I do waking up soaking wet, earaches that would go away with in a couple of hrs but hurt like heck, feeling so tired all the time, and my sex drive diminished and was always so painful with dryness or my hubby hitting it????? So my bff had a light come to her just days ago and said "what about your IUD" so I stayed up late and here was my answer I found all of your stories with the same issues!!! I had just been to the doctors days b4 with massive blood work done to check my thyroids, white blood cell count, and another to see if I had a infection in my brain( SO SCARY) all I could think is I just turned 30 and I have 3 amazing sons and a husband that need me which all of my blood work came back NORMAL... So anyway the next am 11/30/12 I called my obgyn and had he IUD removed!!!! Each day and its only been two my headaches seem better and I hope they stay that way also I almost feel like myself! How much longer do you all think it wit take I have HOPE & THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH LOTS OF LOVE!!
