Yes, my sister had the Minerva IUD removed after she got thyroid cancer. Doctors in the U.S. did not link the two together. After her treatment wasn't taking effect, she went to a hospital in Mexico and they advised her to remove the IUD. When she did, her cell levels went down and her treatment did the rest. Now she is cancer free. THANK GOD!!! She had the IUD with the hormones, the doctor in Mexico said it was the added hormones that may have caused the cancer. I have the copper one and I'm starting to feel some swelling in my throat. I need to see a doctor, but times are tough and I can't afford it. :(
