Mirena fitted and feeling nauseated

I've been feeling queasy since I had my mirena fitted yesterday. So I'm sat in the bathroom googling other people's reactions and I couldn't help but smile at all of the accounts of constipation, and of fear of pushing their IUS out if they pooed! I can related to this...! We do put ourselves through hell, don't we ladies? Sometimes it's nice to see the humour in it, and remember why we do it.

Hi JanuaryOrchrd. Yes, that is the commonest side effect of having one fitted. Hope all soon settles down. At least you've found something to chuckle at! Diane

If I don't laugh, I'll cry ;)

I'm mildly concerned about a couple of mentions of 2 weeks of queasiness...


Oh bless you! I hope not! Most ladies settle back down after a couple of days, due to hormones. Hope you're soon OK fingers crossed! Diane


Incidentally, it's still in, the "swelling" has gone down so it doesn't ache most of the time now, and the queasiness is less frequent/gone.
