I have the Mirena IUD in, I've had it for 3 yrs now. And just recently I've started to have pain and numbness down my left leg and also intense pelvic pain, along with spotting that just started 2 days ago, and I haven't had a period in 2 yrs. I went to the E.R. and they told me i was just getting my period which doesn't make sense in any way. So I was wondering if maybe you could give me answers since they can't. I'm making an appt with an OBGYN tomorrow, but maybe you could help me try and figure out what is wrong, or if you've ever heard of this before? Thank you so much. View Thread
