Hey guys haven't been here in a while...
Not sure if there's already a thread. oh well lol.
Any who I'm looking for anyone who has had experience with Mirena OR Paraguard.
After the birth of my daughter I got the Mirena IUD, for the first year it was great (no period, no notice in change of acne) but it did hurt to "do it."
NOw into my second year it seems like RIGHT when it hit year two I had my first period in a while which came along with HORRIBLE cramps shooting down my right leg, only right leg. I took Tylenol but realized that did NOT work, then to Ibuprofen.
Mean while I hadn't had it checked the whole year like I should have and I'm scared to go inside myself and check..
So I made an appointment the Doctor said well your not supposed to have a period so I had to get an Ultra sound, it was fine but I had a small cyst the sonographer told me. When I took the results to the doctor she mentioned nothing of it and said everything was great.
Ive had about 4 periods now, they are like a moth apart. I've been recording all of my periods and moods and everything..
Like when I started getting my period I woke up with a huge bump on my chin like never, so I thought I got bit, or maybe my pillow case was dirty.. really didn't know
I thought it was a bit.
I've gotten 3 on my chin since then usually one at a time but they take like a week to go away, there's no head or anything so I didn't expect it to be a pimple.
NOW when I flat ironed my hair a touched my forehead so I thought I burned my self because it hurt to touch and it was a growing bump that and would put Silver Sulfadizing cream on it come to find out its one of those like cysts on my forehead, wtf.
and another one coming near it.
I really don't want to get my IUD out so I'm going to a dermatologist/ family doctor on Tuesday. I heard of something called Spironolactone.
I've read other peoples stories and it seems like they've had really bad acne before in their lives.
I never had horrible acne but I always have gotten pimples so like in HS I was prescribed Benzaclin gel and and pill of some sort which I never took.
When I was pregnant I got back acne and more pimples on my face and really bad scaring.
So I really don't know what to expect. This is just killing me though waiting I want good news.
Anyways has any one experienced this?
What are your experiences with IUDs?
