I had the mirena IUD for 5 years, had it removed in august 09, have been Trying to conceive since then. Since December, I have had debilitating PMS, including cycles pretty much every 2 weeks like clockwork. My breasts are not just sore, they are extremely painful and swollen, and hard beyond belief. Moodiness, irritabilty, fatigue, you name it, I have it. Pap smear was completely normal, with the exception of excess mucus around the cervix, apparently indicative of elevated estrogen. Had extensive bloodwork as well which only indicated a severe vitamin D deficiency, 10 mins in the sun and 50,000 units of vitamin D once a week, per doctor.
I also have had unexplained bruising, mostly on my thighs and calves. Doc didnt seem to be too concerned about this. It has become just about unbearable by this point....open to suggestions here!
