Patient : I had the mirena IUD put in 5 weeks ago.
I'm getting blood clots everyday and have had this since day 7 of insitu, my lips have swelled up in the last week, and the skin is tight and painful on them, and my moods have gone from being normal with the occasional rouse on my fiance, to yelling at him for everything, and generally being unhappy, not depressed, just anrgy and upset at things (which is not me).
I'm just wondering if these side effects are normal and are they of reason to have the mirena taken out?
