Did you have any side effects the first day or so after insertion?<br><br>
I'm feeling some of the same side effects I get from my period- achy joints and legs, slightly feverish feeling.<br><br>
I'm trying to figure out if it's related to the Mirena or not, and if so, if it's normal. I've also been having allergy/sinus problems for the past day or two, so maybe it's related to that, instead.<br><br>
It's nothing really bad. Just a general bleh feeling. I had no pain with insertion at all, I honestly barely knew she did it.<br><br>
Thanks!

Thanks!<br><br>
I'm feeling much better today than yesterday. I hope I don't keep spotting for a long time. I figure there's a good chance I'll hate it and have it removed, but it didn't hurt to put it in, and insurance paid for it, so if I have to have it removed...oh well!

I felt bleh from the moment I had it inserted til the moment I had it taken out (about 6mths later). The insertion for me was quite painful, then afterwards I had alot of pelvic pain, crampiness, headaches, lower back aches, mood swings, NO libido, and elevated BP. I only spotted for a few days though. Anyway, I think it's a good option for some women, obviously not for me. Good luck!

I've had no problems... thought I would b/c I'm very intune with my body and hormonal cycle. I think it helped that I had it placed before my cycles returned. Usually I would get my period around 14 months pp. This time I didn't get a period till ab 21 months pp (and had every sign of ovulation but mittzleschmirtz). I had another period ab 6 wks later (which I just finished... no signs of ovulation this time).
