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.
