Firstly, thank you for the emails wondering where I’ve been.  February a year ago I was diagnosed with multiple embolisms in both lungs.  By the time I was diagnosed the emergency room staff told me I was a walking miracle.  By all counts I should have been on a ventilator with only a miracle to save my life.

My family does not have a history of blood clots.  I had not recently had surgery.  I had not been on any long trips, air travel.

The only cause I could come up with is the Mirena IUD.  The doctors say there are no indications on file anywhere that the Mirena IUD causes blood clots or that a woman using it should watch for embolisms.

I would love to hear from others regarding their experience with the Mirena IUD.  On the web I have seen only a couple of stories of women experiencing same, but none of us can prove it is the Mirena IUD.

I would also like to hear from anyone who has used the Mirena IUD and had issues with pregnancies immediately after discontinuing its use.

All the best and thank you for your support, those of you who knew what I was going through.

Dale
