Do any of you ladies have the Mirena IUD? I am happily having it removed today after 2 years. I'm one of the lucky ladies that has weird, horrible pains several times a month that feel like the IUD is trying to jump out of my uterus. Plus, my period is disastrous. I literally have my period 2-3 weeks out of the month. It comes and goes as it pleases and it is far from light enough to just be breakthrough bleeding. It's depressing and I don't want to deal with it anymore. In addition, acne that is IMPOSSIBLE to get rid of popped up on my face shortly after having it inserted. So, I have constant zits along my jaw. That's one reason that I'm having the Essure procedure. I've tried it all and I have issues with everything. And, no, I'm not a hypochondriac. I am just that person that tends to be in the "less than 1 percent" that get certain side effects. Yeay me!
P.S. I'm also getting my first Depo shot today (to thin my uterus for the Essure procedure in 2 weeks). Have any of you had Depo shots? If so, how was it?
9 years ago I had Depo shots. Gosh, I cannot even remember how it works. I don't even remember for how long I used the Depo. 4 years later, after being off of Depo for an amount of time that, again, I cannot remember, I got pregnant (it was planned).
Because I remembered so much (ha ha!), I'm going to say that the experience was uneventful.
I have, however, always had timely cycles and nothing out of the ordinary on or off Depo.
