Heartburn after removing IUD? 🤔

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and definitely don't have all the acronyms figured out so bear with me:)

My husband and I decide to try for our first child so naturally I made an appointment to get my IUD (Mirena) removed. One day later, and for the last week, I've had pretty bad heartburn throughout the day. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat, almost immediately I get this terrible heartburn that is barely dulled with multiple TUMs. And for context, I've only ever had heartburn a few times in my whole life before this.

Is this a thing? Has anyone else experienced this after removing their Mirena or stopping birth control? Not sure if it's linked or just a super strange coincidence.
