Cramps.: Your uterine anomaly could certainly explain the unusual pain from iud removal. Preparation with Arthrotec can prevent such discomfort.

For 2 weeks I have had a lot of nausea, even thrown up and dry heaved. I've had mirena (levonorgestrel) for 1 year but also have a bicornuate uterus. What is the cause?

Different possiblity: First, Mirena (levonorgestrel) is usually not recommended for uteruses that are physcially abnormal like large distorting fibroids or bicornuate uterus. Always test for pregnancy. If negative, then the Mirena (levonorgestrel) may not be the issue. Gastritis, viral inection, ulcers are a few thoughts. I would see my doctor for evaluation since it has been going on for 2 weeks. ...Read more
