I was diagnosed with Cervical Dystonia in 2007 - the same year I started using Mirena. Have had two inserts in the last 10 years. Getting ready to have new insert put in. Just curious if anyone thinks by Dystonia could be caused by Mirena.
I have had my mirena inserted now for just over 5 years and after about a year or so I developed a photosensitivity. I have never had a problem in the sun and am attributing it from my mirena. Has anyone else had this problem? I am having it removed on Friday and I am hoping I will be able to ...
I had the Mirena IUD for approx. 5 years. During that time I experienced the following: extreme fatigue, significant weight gain, inability to lose weight despite diet and exercise, hair loss, acne, joint pain, insulin resistance (pre diabetes), foggy thinking, irritability, and swelling in ...
I had several severe anaphylaxic reactions a year ago, which would have been 8 years after my mirena was inserted. Could it still have active ingredients that could have caused it, of maybe a build up over a number of years?

I've had Mirena in for a little over 1 year and have noticed significant hyperpigmentation on my cheeks and upper lip. I am concerned this is linked to this birth control and would like to learn of other's experience.
I've had the Mirena in now for 22 months(almost 2 years) Im 50 years old and had it placed for heavy bleeding issues, as well as a birthcontrol. Probably for longer than I know I've been noticing severe knee/leg pain but for sure around 7 to 8 months severly. Had xrays done and there is mild ...
