I have had the mirena IUD for about 10 months now. And it has given me a lot of problems. I had it put in I think 6 weeks after I had my son. They told me that for the first half hour to an hour after having itin that I may have some spotting and cramps. I didn't the cramps were too bad, but I bled constantly for 2 months after I got it. Also, I had to get the strings trimmed because one night they had poked my husband and actually made him bleed a little (just a tiny bit, but it's just the point). Shortly after that, I went to use the bathroom and my strings had fallen out and were on the toilet paper.. The doctors told me though that the strings were really just used to help remove it. And my last issues with this is that sex, or even using a tampon is very painful. So my question is is this normal, has anyone else had any of these problems, and if you had it removed, does the pain go away, or is it permanent?
I had mine in for 3 years and it wrecked my sex life. And noone would remove it for me they kept blaming other things different diagnosis from every doctor. Finally i removed it myself. Painful sex immediately went away and i also had relief. Talk to your doctor though that could be serious. And you just want to check but personal experience it was permanent and the iud was the worst decision i could have ever made.
I had a very similar problem (though my partner couldn't feel the strings), I had terrible pain during sex and intermittent pain and moments when I could feel the IUD. I had it removed somewhere around 10 months after insertion and the pain went away. What did you end up doing? Could your dr identify why you were having pain?
I've had mine placed about 10 weeks ago , and also having intense pain during intercourse. It feels as if my hubby is hitting it directly and if its placed in the uterus how is that possible? We've never had this issue before the placement of the iud. Not a happy camper... sex life is not pleasurefull at all just painful, so having this removed seems to be the best thing for us both .. why would you have pain after its removed if that wasn't the case before hand..
