I have a question for anyone out there. Here is the history: I recently had a stroke (36 yrs old). I actually had a small hole in my heart that the clot got through. Doctors say that because I was ortho-tri cyclen (for 15 years!)that that is what happened. I am on Coumadin right now but will be off in January. I just got the mirena IUD. My doc said it was safe because the hormones were low and that it only affected the uterus without going through my whole body. I am still nervous about it. I am experiencing lower abdominal pain on both sides of my body (ovaries) and I am wondering if this is normal or if anyone has had similar pain?
