Questions to the study
I had the Mirena IUD inserted about 6 weeks ago. About 4 weeks in I wet the bed. I was shocked, but cleaned up & put it out of my mind. About a week later it happened again, now I'm very concerned. I'll be seeing the Dr. soon ! SMH
My blood pressure always used to be on the lower side. I am taking Methadone 7.5mg daily(2.5mg 3 times daily) for chronic pain. Ever since I am on 2.5mg Methdone tablets every 8 hours since nine months, my blood pressure has become very uncontrollable i.e. has been on the higher side.
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.
