What should I expect with getting my IUD taken out?

Please post anonymously: getting my IUD out next week and I’m just wondering if I should anticipate any big body changes with the hormone change (it’s a mirena). Anyone get theirs taken out and then experience weight gain, acne, mood swings, etc?


Look up the Mirena Crash…

I didn’t have any major issues with getting mine removed (also mirena), just some cramping and bleeding which is to be expected, and then I didn’t have a period for about 4 months because they pretty much disappeared while I had the IUD, but other than that no issues that I recall. I just got another one put in about a month ago :slight_smile:

I didnt have any issues. Pulled it out myself actually.


My hormones took months to get back to normal

I had mine taken out over a year and a half ago. It was a split second of discomfort (nothing compared to getting it placed). Never had a hormone issue or anything. Also got pregnant right away.

…got mine removed and was pregnant within 3 weeks.

Personally I felt much better. I had the worst side effects from this IUD… currently on the copper and loving it

Mine hurt more coming out than going in. I also had a very heavy period for awhile. At the same time I had to have mine out bc of the hormones and an issue my body was having (I have no thyroid gland, at all - I was born without it). I can definitively say that the pain coming out and the heavy period were a result of Mirena, but other issues may have been specific to me.

I cramped worse getting it put in than taken out. But I got pregnant like a week later :joy:

We can always make our relationship the best for us, life or career a successful as we desire, it only take you to put in the right effort and if you feel you need help then look for help. After my wife left me heartbroken. I was lonely, devastated and sad luckily I was directed to a very kind and powerful man Dr Nathan who helped me brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever am so happy with life now thank you so much Dr Nathan you can email him on ([email protected] com) or you can also what’sapp him on +2347019014544

I had no issues after removal either time. Just be warned that I got pregnant exactly two weeks following the removal of my last one so if your not trying to get pregnant (or at least not right away) use some other type of protection.

I got pregnant 3 days after removal. I had it for 5 years

Got mine take out three weeks ago had massive cramping while on it l, apart from a few days light bleeding afterwards I’ll feel awesome now back to the injection

I took mine out myself. It didnt hurt and barely bled. Took about 2 months to get my periods regularly. Good luck. I had more pain getting it in than taking it out.


I just had mine out like 2 weeks ago. It was like 2 seconds, like taking out a tampon (Dr did it, don’t try yourself) I cramped a bit that afternoon, I’ve had random spotting for the past 2 week. Some last a few days, then nothing for a few days then spotting. Sometimes is light but I have had to us tampons a few times. I think it’s cause I haven’t had a regular period for the 3 years I had the IUD in. And my skin broke out a bit, but it’s clearing up. No other symptoms really.

I’ve had 3 IUDs total. Two were back to back, one removed to get pregnant with my first baby (took a month for my hormones to get right and another 2 to get pregnant), and I got my third IUD out in April(Mays period was very abnormal but it seems as though I’m back on track now).

More pain coming out, than going in! I bled the second day after removal - never got it for 1 1/2 yrs while having it.

A little cramping and maybe a little spotting afterwards. Super quick. Had a period a few weeks later. 3 months post iud out and all is good. I feel lighter and not as bloated. The first period after was insane because I have had mine for 4 years. Good luck!

Weight gain… mood changes and a whole infant 9 months later :wink: (that’s what happened to me,anyway) good luck!
