After my DS was born I had a copper IUD inserted. Can't do mirena as I don't tolerate hormones well and also have PND that won't go well with it.
So I had no adverse symptoms until my period returned when he's was 6 months old. It is TERRIBLE!! So so heavy, cramps like early labour, anxiety and dizziness and general nausea. I would feel like this for a week.
So I've now had it in for 10 months and I've decided to have it OUT today. Each period is as I said above, except this last one that went for 20 whole days
But - once the period passes, it's all not so bad. But I have this overwhelming feeling that I need it gone, I feel so strange having something in me. Des that make sense? Also, I'm returning to work next month and I can't imagine being on public transport with a period so heavy, or sitting in a meeting, or even going from desk to desk without a head spin.
So I guess I'm asking for your experience and or advice.....
PS I did increase my daily zinc which helped a little, but it made me feel so so sick.
. THANK YOU.
