Wow, so glad I found this thread. My wife of 7 years started taking the Mirena IUD right after our daughter was born. Even after we were cleared to have sex again, nothing. Her sex drive was gone. We assumed it was only the newborn and sleep deprivation, but now that it’s 2 and a half years later, life is back to normal. Sadly, her sex drive never came back. We went from having quality and romantic sex 5 times a week, to about twice a month. Even that is only because she feels guilty and gives in. I can feel her resentment, and it’s a terrible situation all around. Since the implant, she has gained a lot of weight that won’t come off with diet or exercise, become agitated, and short tempered. It’s all too coincidental and can be tracked back to the IUD. I plan on discussing this further with her and will offer to have a vasectomy in order to get her off BC. Hopefully this will help her health and our marriage.
