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 have chiari malformation and have always had head pain, but after having a surprise baby at 45, I decided mirena was a good idea. I've been suffering such horrible head pain, soul crushing, and the only change is mirena. I've been told it's not the mirena. I think it's a lie.
I switched from the pill to the mirena in June of 2015. I knew there would be some side effects associated with it but I never thought I would be diagnosed with incomplete urine prolapse less than two years later. I just had it removed last Wednesday. Mind you my cervix was fine before I had it ...
Hi everyone, I was just diagnosed with RA and fibroids. I am suffering from a lot of pain and I am not on medication just yet. I joined as I really feel down and alone. All the best to everyone in the group! Karolina
The mirena and plantar faciitus have all but ruined my life. I believed they were separate issues or if connected at all that the PF would be caused by the exteme weight gain I have had since having the mirina inserted. I am very anxious to read information about their possible connection. Thank u.
