Mirena and weird dreams?

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this - I'm 4 months in with the Mirena after switching from a Paragard and everything's going well. No pain during penetrative intercourse, periods are so light and easy that I almost mistake them for spotting (I have one day of bleeding heavy enough to warrant a tampon), and I haven't been getting them regularly. I'm a PCOS sufferer so I don't get regular cycles anyway!

Also, to update, I had a problem with breast tenderness for several weeks last month. It was bad enough to make me not want to lay on my stomach and definitely bad enough to make me not want my partner to touch them! I also had pain when putting on a removing my sports bras (and I'm a small chested person). Anyway, someone on here mentioned they had breast tenderness as a PMS symptom with the Mirena, and low and behold, that's what it was! I got my period 3 weeks late (of course, I'm not really on any schedule because I'm irregular, but it was 3 weeks later than a regular cycle would have been) and it was those 3 weeks that I had the breast tenderness! On day one of bleeding, it went away. Weird!

Anyway, the question at hand now is, does anyone with a Mirena notice weird dreams? I tend to be a vivid dreamer anyway, but I only remember my dreams if I wake up in the middle of them or if they were really emotionally charged. Not much has changed in my life other than the IUD, and now I wake up almost every morning from a disturbing dream/nightmare. I still feel relatively well-rested, but it's just weird! Not weight enough to make me want to get rid of the Mirena, but disturbing nevertheless.

So, how about it, Divas? Anyone with the Mirena and nightmares?
