It has taken me one month to notice that mirena is the reason why my sex drive has gone away completely. Before mirena I was on depo for 4 years (doctors convinced me to get off of depo because I was on it longer than recommended) Anyway, after talking to my boyfriend about my doctors concerns about depo we decided together to switch to the IUD. WORST decision that I've ever made. Before getting this IUD we had sex on the regular. Most times two or three times a day. Now I am no longer affectionate AT ALL!!! Don't want to hug, kiss, cuddle and most of all I have no desire to have sex of any kind at all. After forcing myself to be intimate with him a few times I decided to be honest with him and tell him that I'm 1000% sure it's the IUD that's killing my sex drive. Let me not forget to mention that I've been super moody lately. It's almost like I'm depressed or extremely irritated most of the time the smallest things with will change my mood for the worst. Tomorrow is my 4 week appointment with my doctor to see how things are going with Mirena. After talking to my boyfriend and reading these comments I'm definitely getting it taken out tomorrow. We're going to just do condoms and give my body a break from all these birth control methods until we're ready to plan our next baby. I would not recommend this birth control to anyone.
