When I was 21 and had my six week post baby check up, my midwife had pushed me into making a decision about BC right away, at that appointment. I knew prior that I had to start considering, and had been doing some research on different BC options, but I absolutely wasn't ready to make a snap choice on the spot. Well, she pushed and I folded, and ended up with the Mirena that afternoon.
I can't say I've had any issues, I was one of the lucky ones who had zero periods for the entire duration of it. No cramping, no pain, nothing. However, FI and I have been discussing TTC shortly after the wedding, so I contacted my new gyno about having it removed. I guess I didn't realize how many issued came with it, and honestly I'm fucking terrified. It seems there are new articles all the time about potential dangers with the Mirena, and the damage it does to the body. My gyno suggested talking to other women, as everyone reacts differently, but there should be no problem at all. So, on that note, did anyone have any issues ? Not just with the removal itself, but any issues with conception after ?
Honestly, it has to come out within the next 4 months as I'm on my fifth year. But I'm fucking terrified. I wish I had done more research at the time, and realized I had more control over my body to say no. I know googling is the worst thing you can do about things like this, but I did. And yeah, I cried. A lot. I'm scared that I did a lot of damage to my body, and that I will have trouble with conception. I can't get in to physically see my doctor for a few weeks yet, so all I have to go on is her stating there are rarely any issues at all.
Did anyone get it removed with no problems ? Sorry for the long rant, but its just been eating away at me, and I figured I would get a better variety of answers than a google search.
