I felt the same way but you possibly might rip something if you pull to hard on it. I wouldn't recommend it cause the way you pull can cause you to tear. I have a slight tilt to my uterus so if I were to pull it out myself I pretty sure would have torn my inside somehow. thank god I had an appt. ahead of time like a month. I am sorry you aren't having any luck with it, but than your lucky you found out the cause of your problems. I keep thinking how our divorces rate is so high I wonder if it is because of not only the Mirena IUD but many other hormone birth control women are using and having some kind of side effects that make them CRAZY. HEHE Just something to think about.
