its been awhile since i have posted. everything is going decent for now. i still am having issues. i will be going next week to get my iud removed. after several tests, labs, etc it has been ruled down to this. which i would have never suspected since it is "hormone free". the issue is the copper. i know in the uk they have the same thing but it is nickel not copper. if i knew then what i do now i would never have gotten it and it is in the process of being recalled here. praying this straightens everything out some. you all are such great support and wonderful people.
