I had the Mirena inserted in April of this year. Since insertion I've had light to very heavy periods. With the heaviest starting yestery. It was so heavy, I saturated 3 pads in 8 hours and passed some very large clots. I've been to the OB/GYN who inserted in and she seems hesitant to take it out and has offered to do an ablation with either the warmed balloon or the nuvomed method. I am hesitant. I want it out, especially after yesterday. Also approximately 2 weeks ago, I had some bleeding. That was light. I had terrible cramps and back pain yesterday.

Also, I have a small 2.4 cm cyst on my left ovary and get terrible mittleschmirtz pain some months.

We've heard from several women who've had problems, you can read more here:

Hope this helps. The decision on whether or not to remove it is completely yours, and if your doctor is hesitant then you may want to find another doctor who will work with you. Good luck! Pat
