I had my IUD inserted in December of 07. After accidentally pulling it out in December of 09 I had one reinserted in January 2010. I had my first seizure in March '10 while sleeping. After that I had a series of "blackouts" basically i would start talking about things unrelated to the conversation I was having. I ended up on seizure meds (Lamictal) in September of 2011. Things seemed to be getting better but then I started having grand mals. I had 1 December 2011 and then some more in May 2012 and finally 1 in June 2012. I stopped taking the seizure medication. The grand mals went away but I began tracking my "black-outs" and noticed that I got them 2x's a month, once at the beginning of my period and then another just after. I finally got the IUD removed February 7, 2013 I had my last "blackout" on February 6, 2013.
