Hey ladies!…Here’s some background info!
I had a Mirena IUD inserted about a month ago- it was overall a horrendously painful expirience but I figured it would be worth it for 5 years of birth control, as well as pretty much eliminating my periods that are so painful because I suffer from endometriosis.
Within a few days, I started to notice a really sharp pain on my left, lower abdomen, and went into urgent care- they examined me and told me everything was fine. The pain never went away, in fact it got worse over the next couple weeks, during that time I had fevers, and other symptoms but I just wrote it off to getting the cold that was being passed around at work. Finally, after suffering excruiciating pain since last Friday, I went to the Dr. yesterday, at which time he informed me that I had a severe case of pelvic inflammatory disease, and put me on several high-strength antibiotics that I have to take over the next month.
I was wondering if anyone else had a similar expirience with the IUD, or even any expirience with PID- I’ve done a lot of research, but I can only find the scary facts, and I want to hear from some real ladies who have actually gone through this before!
