I was scheduled to have the Mirena removed this morning and have a new one put in.
The removal – not a problem. Didn’t feel a thing, and wouldn’t have believed the clinician had she not showed me the coil! I’ve experience pap smears that were worse.
The reinsertion – Now, that’s a completely different story. As she was almost ready to insert the coil, I began blacking out due to my dysautonomia. She immediately withdrew and got me into a comfortable and stable position. It took everything out of me. I’ve slept most of the day away. And she was not able to insert a new Mirena at this time.
I’m not sure if my exhaustion today is due to the withdraw of hormones from Mirena. (I doubt this since I’ve had it 5 years and there is still residual hormones in there for a while, I would assume. But I could be wrong) Or, the dysautonomia. (More likely, I would think.)
Cramping hasn’t been bad at all. Just really, really, REALLY, tired!!! Kept drifting off today and still want to crawl into bed. Which I think I will now do.
