To all of you who are even thinking about getting the Mirena removed, just do it! If you are having doubts, you are not happy.
I had the Mirena iud for over 2 years. During that time I lost my libido, had reoccurring yeast infections, lack of sleep, and was literally not attracted to my boyfriend. I got it taken out 6 weeks ago and my libido came back (with a vengeance) when i had my first period. I am sleeping better than ever (like twice as long every night). I have had 0 yeast infections. And have refell in love with the boy wbo stuck with me through all the crap. I am using a combination of the diaphragm and the calendar birth control (knowing when you are fertile). I think all this new hormonal birth control is disconnecting women from their bodies. You all have the power to control your bodies and fertility. Don't let anyone pressure you into doing things you don't want to do to yourself. There are always other options, even if they are less common. Good luck to you all!
