I am so happy to have found this thread! I don't feel so alone and stupid knowing that there are other women experiencing the same type of issues. I am 23 and I got my mirena placed about a month ago and I am not sure if I made the right decision now. I originally got it placed for heavy periods and for pregnancy prevention, also it's one of the only birth controls that won't affect my blood pressure (I have high BP). Since I've had it in, I've had a period for about 2 weeks now, cramping almost every day, more acne than normal, moodiness that turns me into a you-know-what, and my sex drive is not what it use to be. I have a very high sex drive and so does my boyfriend but with my sex drive decreasing, it is now causing a problem in our relationship. He is understanding and supportive but I feel so badly that I can't perform for him like I use to or even want sex anymore :/. Also when I do attempt to be intimate, it's hard for me to reach orgasm and when I do, it's only half of what I use to achieve before. Extremely frustrating to say the least!! I have no idea what to do, I'm not sure if I should wait it out since it still is only a month that I've had it in or if I should get it out now to prevent any further problems. I'm also curious to hear if when other women got it taken out, how long it took them to start feeling somewhat "normal" again. Please give me all the advice you can lol!!!!
