Oh I know they don't want to believe that it is the Mirena. I went in to have mine removed and the Doctor (not my normal OBGY, because she doesn't insert these stupid things, I wonder why) asked my why I was getting my IUD removed. Was I having more children? He asked with a big smile on his face. When I said no, I am having severe hip pain. He briskly replyed " Oh, you can't blame that on the IUD." And that was the last of our conversation. The rest was the usual sit here, scoot down here. You know the drill. It is amazing how much better you feel after it is gone. Good luck to you.
