Hi Everyone, I have had the mirena for 5 yrs now. I got it Jun. 08. I have never had any real complaints about it until the last year or so. Here lately I have been having a massive headache, my boobs itch, two weeks ago I had a tremendous appetite (craving everything), now not so much. My back aches, I am sensitive to smells (not like me), I am very fatigued (all I want to do is sleep), and I am constantly sick to my stomach. I also feel the flutters and everyone insists on asking me if I am pregnant. Sometimes I get dizzy from walking or sitting.
I am nervous I may be pregnant because all of the symptoms are there....the only catch is I have not missed my period (some days extremely light...spotting for 2 to 3 days). I have read where some women have become pregnant without missing their cycle...my mom didn't miss with 2 of us. Since I have had the mirena my period has never been consistent, sometimes its on-time, sometimes its late...so I didn't think anything of symptoms.
I have also developed painful cramps that are random...even during intercourse. Today I took a home pregnancy test...negative. I have an appointment in a week to have my mirena removed...but I also want a blood test done. I have had these symptoms hardcore for three weeks and I need answers.
Results.....to be continued.......................View Thread
