We solved a mystery last week. I went in for a semi-routine ultrasound to check up on some cysts that I have been having the past few months. While I was in the ultrasound, they found... my lost IUD! They had told me months ago that it probably just fell out. I didn't believe them, but how do you argue with someone who went to school for decades? Well, they found it and it is no longer inside my uterus, but floating around outside now surrounded by fluid. This makes so much sense!! I've been getting double dosage of birth control for quite a few months now. I'm beginning to understand the weight gain, the lack of patience where my kids are concerned, the general hormonal feelings, and the fact that I'm still not having regular cycles months after weaning Mercedes. I have to go in for surgery to get it removed, probably the end of next week. I'll be so glad to be hormone free! I've decided that birth control is not on my side. It either doesn't work, or it over-works!
