In July 2019 I had just had my 3rd baby and 6 weeks later I had a copper IUD inserted. I’m 40. I had heavy periods, stronger cramping which I was aware would happen. I had no significant negative symptoms afterwards, until around 6 months ago. Headaches, intense brain fog where I can’t focus for the life of me, intense fatigue, arms going numb, forgetfulness, irritability, pelvic pain, abdominal pain and get this – MULTIPLE UTIS. We (partner and I) paid a visit to a urologist and when it came up I had an IUD, he immediately said to get it removed. I’m here waiting to get it off and I cannot wait to start feeling better.
