I have had the Mirena IUD in for a little over a year. Sex wasn’t a huge issue at first but it’s become worse. My body doesn’t respond to things it used to and I get extremely annoyed with my boyfriend when he wants to have sex. I get frustrated with myself because things aren’t ‘working right’ and it makes me feel like a disappointment. Also my boobs get really big and sore for a few weeks and then literally deflate for weeks? Weird. Morning sex is the worst because my body just doesn’t respond to anything! I want to get it out but he doesn’t want to as a precautionary. I’ve never had depression but for the first 3 months I struggled with unheard of depression and suicidal thoughts. That luckily went away. I hear all these commercials about drugs causing suicidal thoughts and you think how? But that definitely woke me up on how things can change and be out of your control. I wasn’t offered non hormonal iud and assume it’s even MORE crazy expensive as the Mirena cost me 1,800 thanks to my insurance denying me. Can’t win being a woman.
