    Mirena for Menstrual complaints

    I am glad that I am not the only one. When I was used about 2 years ago, the Mirena, I had a huge pleasure with it. I started a new job, had a new husband and my FA thought this contraceptive fits exactly in your new life! Great! , I thought so. I have to say that five years ago I had tried various hormone supplements for contraception (various pills, nuvaring, …) as well as to alleviate my menstrual problems (severe, very painful menstrual period). The same side effects always occurred. And my FA always told me that I’m imagining them all. So I was glad when it said that the hormone spiral only releases hormones locally and the rest of the body is not burdened. I was well prepared with vaginal tablets to soften the cervix. The insertion itself hurt me terribly. It was a strong pain inside that caused nausea – indefinable. For two days I had a dull ache. The spotting bleed quickly and meanwhile I had no mens left. Every day I needed a bag of magnesium, otherwise I had abdominal cramps. Well – it was nice, you did not have to worry about his prevention and the absence of the mens was a nice side effect. The abdominal cramps could be handled very well with magnesium. My side effects occurred slowly. I am always very tired, choppy and moody. In addition, I got back pain, which was accompanied by constant headache. The headache in turn triggered dizziness, visual and concentration disorders. Loss of desire of 120% – I would like that my friend only hugs me and if he comes too close to me, I immediately go goose bumps and feel tense. Terrible, is not it ?! Oh well. I did not associate all of these symptoms with Mirena. Why? Local hormones do not do anything. I had my entire body checked, seeking advice from alternative medicine practitioners, TCM practitioners and physiotherapists. Finally, everyone was at the end of their knowledge. I was healthy, but felt terrible. As if I would miss my life. The last few days everything was much worse than usual – at some point, my friend has expressed the suspicion that he suspected these symptoms behind Mirena. I was dumbfounded, I did not want to believe it. But then I googled and found hundreds of testimonials. Reports from women who have had a similar experience as me. Our decision was quickly fixed – appointment at the FA and out with the killer thing out of my body. Yesterday I had the appointment and when I made my decision, I first had to hear that I would probably suffer from depression. The spiral probably does not have much to do with my condition. I did not give up and now she is out. Short, severe pain – accompanied by nausea. Everything is different today. I’m crazy, just eat chocolate and do not know where I’m missing. Maybe already Hormonentzug? I wish and expect that the next months will be better for me and that I will find my way back to myself. Never again do I leave foreign hormones in my body. That’s for sure. My intention is not to maul Mirena here. No. I know women who are doing well and who are comfortable with her. That’s a good thing – but everyone has to find their own way in this area.

    I am stunned by what I read here and in other forums and groups. 4 years ago, I had the MIRENA placed after swallowing the pill daily for years. I am 41 years old and my gynecologist recommended the spiral and praised her in the highest tones. She would be well tolerated by all and all her patients would be satisfied. On my note, it would also be hormones, she reassured me, the MIRENA would deliver the hormones only locally. The spiral was laid, no possible side effects were given to me on the way, a leaflet I was certainly not handed. Today I know how naive I was. On holiday 2 months ago, I got to know a young woman and we came to the subject of MIRENA, why can not I say exactly today, but on arrival at home, I researched the Internet on this topic. It is unbelievable what I read all about complaints under the MIRENA. – premature menopausal symptoms – hot flashes / sweating – water retention – circulatory problems – dizziness – hair loss – sleep disorders – night sweats – mood swings – depressive episodes – irritability – fatigue / fatigue – weight gain – joint pain – muscle tension – abdominal pain – back pain – digestive problems – vaginal infections – blemishes – Facial hair – dry eyes Almost everything I read has been coming to me in the past 4 years, and I have not had the slightest idea that it might be due to the spiral. I have been walking from doctor to doctor for months, I doubt it myself, last year I have a rectocele removed from the rectum because I can not stand the abdominal and back pain, with the result: digestion works better now, abdominal and back pain remained. Previously unfit for work and taking antidepressants and sleeping pills for weeks due to these ongoing problems. Then I get vaccinated with gynatren last year for 97, – €, because I suffer again and again of vaginal infections and thus my antibodies should be strengthened, with the result: I treat myself with vaginal pills and ointment now, because I’m stupid happen to run to the doctor again and again. Then the annual check-up at the gynecologist, all right, spiral is perfect, my mentioned problems of sweating, sleep problems, mood swings, night sweats and pain all over the body can also indicate a defect and I would like to ask my doctor’s blood to be examined. Result: thyroid, iron, vitamin D, B12, folic acid everything in the green range and 18, – € for the lab paid as non-cash benefit. Then, five weeks ago, I had arthroscopy on my right shoulder to remove an inflamed bursa. Previously, I had been in pain for about 2 years, had been a permanent guest at physiotherapy to relieve muscle tension, had taken painkillers to work, and to sleep at night, I went to the neurosurgeon, who confirmed that my cervical spine was gone intact, but age appropriate and no surgery would be necessary, fortunately. I’ve been to the rheumatologist, with the result: all right, no rheumatism. Today’s current condition: bursa is out, proliferation on the biceps has been removed, everything went well, but … I still have painful movement restrictions. Then I have massive hair loss that has even struck my hairdresser now, I have gained 10 kg in 4 years, I get pain in the joints at night, I sweat as if I was in menopause, I am moody and irritable and have Therefore I have more and more stress with my husband, I am tired and beaten during the day, but can not sleep at night, I have a bloated face in the morning, in the evening swollen fingers and water retention above the ankles, I have facial hair growth, that I shave myself daily like a man, I have dry eyes and treat them with eye drops and I have blurred vision, have had me to do a progressive lens, which also does not really help me and the optician said that I was still pretty young for a lens with Nahverstärkung. The fact is that I let the spiral go and I hope, hope, hope that I will eventually go better and I find a suitable for me hormone-free contraceptive method. I found a Swiss company on the internet selling a cycle computer called Daysy. The information sounds pretty promising, but I’m pretty undecided as to whether it makes sense at my age just before menopause.

    Never again Mirena !! When, after about 4.5 years, I happened to bump into Mirena more or less by chance on the various forums and posts about Mirena, it struck me like scales from my eyes !! I made an appointment directly with my FA and the culprit was drawn just over a week ago. Since then, the following has changed in my life (Thank God very quickly or immediately and hopefully permanently): 1. Constant urination — I had pushed on my two births, thought: great, half incontinent with late 30 — after Pull: OFF !! 2. the feeling of being at least 90 years old, if still alive: WAY !!! 3. Lack of energy, felt burn-out, everything too much, everything exhausting — I had pushed on overwork because of children / work, although I was always aware that my work is actually to create or should be — WAY! ! 4. super-dry skin on the face and on the head: is beautiful to have my soft skin given back … wonderful !! 5. foul-smelling discharge, always having the feeling that I stink and have to take a shower: OFF !! 6. increased hair growth (especially on the chin and on the legs) — I can not judge yet. 7. Aggressiveness, the non-acceptance of physical closeness, often zero in people and sociability (to go to kindergarten alone to pick up my daughter cost me every time a huge overcoming): OFF !! 8. I also always had a funny feeling in the mouth … very strange + disgusting … also feels much better, but I can not yet 100% on the Mirena push … 9. My stomach !! My waist !! I went to FA last summer because I was 100% sure I was pregnant … but I was not. I had almost constantly (at least emotionally) a belly like in the 4./5. Month. — PATH!! 10. Constant diarrhea — not yet resolved, but I also have hope here :-)) 11. Deteriorated vision because of too dry eyes — not yet resolved: – ((Mannoman, I feel like new born and I’m especially mad at me, because I’ve done it without batting an eyelash, I think my side effects appeared after about 2 years, before it was okay It’s all the more appreciated that it makes you happy again after such tiring and bad times when you do not even know what’s going on with you, like many of you, I ran to the doctor because I did too thought I was sick for sure but thank goodness not the case !! I can only say: NEVER AGAIN HAPPY HORMONE FOR ME !!!

    In October 09 I had the third Mirena spiral (interrupted by a pregnancy) used in succession. The first I had super tolerated. The second spiral had symptoms I did not associate with the Mirena: mild vision problems, palpitations, listlessness, slight breast tenderness, general malaise in large crowds (anxiety). The o.g. Symptoms increased dramatically after the onset of the third spiral in October. Within the last three months, I suffered from tachycardia (my doctor told me to use beta-blockers), my blood pressure was far too high, I experienced an incredible form of listlessness, even though I was actually a very active person, my breasts seemed to burst and the Anxiety increased massively. I barely dared to leave the house for fear of large crowds. These attacks are really bad. I arranged an appointment with the FA and asked him to the spiral wg. of possible side effects. He explained to me that there were such symptoms but less than 1% and that it could be menopausal. (I’m 45). I asked him to pull her anyway. Since then I still am not feeling so well, but much better. I was in town today (among many people) and just had a slight dizziness – do not worry and do not panic -. I think that both aspects play a role in me. Spiral and menopause. But the one problem is already solved, now I can take care of the other thing completely hormone free 🙂

    I would strongly advise against the Mirena Hormone Spiral! The side effects are enormous! Moreover, they were concealed by my gynecologist, I did not get a leaflet. Also, it is not true that the hormone spiral only acts locally. The uterus is extremely well supplied with blood, the hormones are distributed throughout the body and try an enormous chaos. The common feature was that the side effects gradually crept in and – because I knew nothing about side effects – could not be associated with the Mirena. I had the first Mirena set in 2000. The insertion was horror-painful (no birth yet) and the pain lasted at least a week and I thought to get them out again immediately, but at least it had cost 300 marks. Then the pain subsided and the bleeding also subsided over time. It all seemed great and yet – I am clear today – the first side effects already arose after some time: – pigmentation on the face (brown spots) – morning sickness – swindle – whiskers on the chin 2006 Then it was time for the next Mirena , Since the threads were not findable and a “rum punch” of a FA was a horror trip and I almost collapsed, the change had to be made under general anesthesia. Everything went well, pain soon subsided. About 1 ½ years later we started: – Uncontrollable weight gain (“lifebuoy”, belly swelling, how pregnant) of altogether 11 kg in 3 years !!! I had always been slim and slim and this weight gain weighed heavily, especially because I could not do anything about it – water retention in the legs, venous problems – Increased cellulite – Libido loss (almost zero) – eye deterioration, printed blurred, veils in front of the lenses, sudden and vehemently occurring presbyopia (since I always had great eyes and never glasses, this experience was also a horror for me) – food intolerances – cold and heat sensitivity – digestive problems – hard lymph nodes under the armpits and in the groin – orange stinking discharge – Reinforced dark hair on the lower legs – sciatica, lumbago – migraine – neck tension – evening leg cramps – rheumatism-like discomfort in the left shoulder – painful itchy pimples on the neck and chin area In addition, I developed some mental problems, but I mainly a p attributed to traumatic stress disorder (sexual violence experiences in childhood): – panic attacks – tightness and choking on the neck – listlessness, listlessness, depression

    I already had the 3 Mirena insert, because I have tolerated the previous good. Since I have the 3, the side effects have increased significantly. Have indigestion, constant bloating, mood swings, cyst formation, blurred vision, loss of libido (was previously even zero) and for a week, the stomach is so swollen, as if I was pregnant. I thought at the beginning I have something with the stomach / intestine. Have also done a lot of research (stomach / colonoscopy, food intolerance test, stool samples, diet change) and nothing came out. Only when I was more concerned with the side effects of Mirena, I have come to the conclusion that this may have to do with the spiral. I’ll let them go this week as well. From my experience, I can say, although I was satisfied for a long time, the side effects, although not equal, but noticeable over time, even if you do not recognize the same. After all, there are hormones that are eliminated and they can not be healthy. I will not let them use any more.

    Mirena for Contraception

    NW: panic attacks, hot flushes, extreme nausea, heart rhythm disturbances, sleep disturbances, depressive mood, irritability, aggressiveness, visual disturbances, loss of appetite, taste and smell went away, libido was zero, the feeling of being constantly energized, digestive disorders, PMDD, muscle tension, constant Fatigue and weakness. The fact is: AFTER the removal all NW were better or disappeared completely. Quality of life is restored !! Mirena is NOT ONLY LOCAL, as many doctors advertiseMirena robbed me of 9 years of my life! More infos in hormonspiralenforum or on fb. 1000s of women with the same NW do not conceive of them (as doctors often say): /

    After I did not tolerate any of the common pills / hormonal contraceptives (including Nuvaring), my copper coil was lost after 6 months and I experienced several glitches with condoms, I opted for the hormonal spiral. 1.5 years later, I probably would not do this anymore. After 2 sleepless months, more and more symptoms started to appear. Hands and feet tingled for no reason, I felt a pressure behind my right eye, blurred vision, back pain, hip pain, listlessness, abdominal cramps. I ran from doctor to doctor and in the meantime was sent to the MRI with suspected MS. Everything without diagnosis – psychosomatic or stress – do yoga. No one thought that the spiral could be guilty, even though I repeatedly made that assumption to the doctors. Now I let them finally pull me next week and hope that all symptoms disappear again. It seems to me that my body aged 30 years and just not the same anymore.

    NEVER AGAIN MIRENA !!! at least for me … After almost 1 year I would like to report about my experiences with the Mirena. In August 2006, I let her lie down. After initial pain (about 3 days), I was fine for some time. In the meantime I am without Mirena again. I do not want to advise anyone about Mirena. There are women who are very satisfied with the Mirena. But there also seems to be women who are not. My person included. Although the doctors claim that the Mirena can not be the reason for a variety of symptoms, I am quite different opinion. I think, no matter what dosage, it’s just an intervention in the hormone balance. And a foreign body to it. Not every organism reacts the same. And honestly, if the Mirena can do something positive, then why not negative? Here is my story. I am 45 years old and have no children. Actually, I never wanted to use a spiral again. At a young age, I once had the copper spiral, which I removed after 1 year due to severe abdominal pain. But after all my thoughts and information and advice from my gynecologist, I decided that the Mirena was the best solution for me and I would have had 5 years rest. As I said, I was fine for a while. My period continued as usual regularly between 27-31 days. However, only as spotting and unfortunately initially up to 11 days. Over time, however, this reduced to the absence of the period. I thought super … That’s why I paid no attention to the first symptoms. They came so gradually, at first still weak. Incidentally, I already knew her more or less from my years with pill and thought, ok that’s how it is … My first symptoms I got so in October 2006. Breast tenderness (I could regulate with Mastodynon reasonably) and occasionally a few pimples (with I otherwise had no problems at all). For the first time in November I had really howling attacks. That made me think. There was no apparent reason, however. I am a very happy and joyful person. A friend said that could be the first signs of menopause. Well, with 45 of course that would be possible. Well, over time, the breast tenderness became more and more extreme and even with Mastodynon no longer under control. Pimples on the back, neck, face, décolleté and upper arms tightened. There was also increased itching all over the body, tingling and numbness on the right thigh. Blurred vision. I also needed a body size more. Unfortunately, I also found that I had gained 4 kg by now. I found that strange, in such a short time and without any change in my eating, – sport, – and habits. In the middle of June it really started. I got extreme migraine attacks, nausea, dizziness, tingling in the whole body, rapid heartbeat, to the worst panic attacks with dread. For no apparent reason and mostly at night. I was completely checked through (blood counts, ECG, EEG, head ultrasound, MRI, blood pressure). Everything great. I should prepare myself that these would be the menopause … and that I should visit a psychotherapist. Also, my new gynecologist said that these are beginning menopause and had nothing to do with the Mirena. But you can not rule it out. Interestingly, I found that he was very quickly ready to remove the Mirena again. What he did then immediately. Incidentally, compared to the onset, no pain. Well, I tried it with high-dose valerian, Bach Flower Rescue and homeopathy (Coffea + Aconitum) … the extreme tachycardia at night was probably the worst … no improvement. Then only diazepam helped, although I am totally against such tranquilizers. But you can not sleep all night, nobody can afford it. After all, I also had to stay productive in my job. Well, I have read many reports from other women with similar symptoms in connection with the Mirena on the Internet. In addition, I am very busy with homeopathy, meta-medicine, alternative methods and more recently with hormones. In retrospect, I can say that I know most of the described symptoms in one form or another in a weaker form over the past 25 years. But I could live with it. Times when I did not take hormones were symptom free. But I have never associated this with the hormones throughout the years … especially since migraine and skin problems are also present in our family. And I have always relied completely on the statements of the doctors. They always certified me best health and that was probably psychosomatic or the PMS. On 26

    Mirena for Dizziness; Pain (back); Aggressiveness; Mood swings; Libido disorders; A headache

    First of all, I would like to say that I searched for the cause of my complaints for a long time and that no doctor could help me. I am 35 years old and had the second spiral laid about a year ago. A short time later, I was admitted to the hospital with a suspected stroke. I had blurred vision, dizziness and speech interruption. The numerous investigations showed only how healthy I am. This incident was soon followed by strong mood swings, depression, hair loss and severe headaches. By chance I became aware of this forum today and after so long now finally have an answer to my suffering. I thought I was going crazy. Tomorrow I have an appointment directly with a gynecologist to have them removed. I can not completely advise against the HS because in the first years I was satisfied but for me it is no longer in question. There are certainly women who tolerate it well, but the women who might be prone to mood swings anyway I would not recommend them. I’m curious how long it takes me to feel better after the removal.

    I had the Mirena for 7 years. Actually, she should go out after 5 years, but my gynecologist said, as long as she sits well, she can continue to prevent violent bleeding in front of the spiral (she has) and can remain quietly, to prevent me, I should additionally protect myself with condoms , The entire first year I had bleeding, sometimes more, sometimes less, then hardly any bleeding, which I found very pleasant. But – about 4 years ago, the first time hot flashes occurred, again and again I was groundless bad mood or irritable, nervous, impatient (all before no character traits, which I had attributed to me) and since last summer, I had several times before panic attacks, flicker the eyes, shortness of breath, and since the last three years always different back and shoulder pain. All this I would never have attributed to Mirena without reading this report. I have had countless examinations and treatments with the various medical specialists behind me – without result. no conspicuous blood values, no noticeable inflammatory values, no noticeable X-ray or MRI images (back / shoulder) – and my psyche would now also be described as completely in order ;-). Since Monday, the Mirena is out, about two hours after removal have used light bleeding, which last until now (Thursday), but I have no pain. Conclusion: To prevent the Mirena was great. Whether she actually caused the other problem -? I’m curious if the other symptoms improve … and will report again.

    Have today after 10 years, the MIRENA on the advice of my new gynecologist remove. After my pregnancy in 1998, Mirena was recommended to me by my gynecologist at that time, insertion was without any problems, no bleeding was very pleasant, after 5 years then (2003) the obligatory change, all big and small complaints I pushed until summer 2007 on too much work ( I am self-employed and certainly had too little time for myself). In the summer of 2007, my Odysee began: only months of sleep + sleep disorders, listlessness and thus naturally irritability, lack of concentration, etc. It got a bit better in the autumn by reducing the workload, in the spring of 2008 I had a very tight schedule and somehow I had to go through it all. In April we started with blurred vision and vertigo, until then I could not go shopping (at the cash register) wait, was like standing on a staggering ship) and finally in July with the absolute feeling that now I cant to land at the neurologist. In the brain everything was fine, blood in order, thyroid in order, diagnosis also logically by my family doctor burn-out. That was certainly partly it, but now I have reduced my work many times over the past six months, the financial pressure as well, I have a lot more time for myself, do at least 1 hour of sport a day in the air, meditate, do that 5 Tibetans, do not drink coffee anymore, etc. At the same time, since 2006, for no real reason, I have gained 15 kilos. All stress-reducing measures have worked in part, but not completely, the last few months I’ve got panic attacks when more than 100 people in the room, heart arrhythmia and tachycardia, tingling on the feet, diffuse anxiety, cotton wool in the head, etc. Have it all almost pushed to menopause and then decided to change my old (even in real life old) gynecologist and I went to a fresh from the university doctor. Today. After I told her all that and she has really taken 40 minutes, came from her the advice to remove the Mirena (actually, it would have been the time to change again and my old gynecologist would have certainly used me again a new, the do not deserve because bad and at least I paid 2x paperless). She said that she already had three women with similar diagnoses, diffuse, variable symptoms, all of whom had the mirena, and who were getting better after removing them. If this has been the puzzle for the last 2 awful years now, I can advise anyone who is aware of any changes after the onset of MIrena to pay close attention to themselves. I’m supposed to wait three months for what and how things are going to change, but after reading a series of testimonials I’m convinced that there’s a connection with me.
