    Mirena for Menorrhagia

    Have read the reviews with interest, because I got the Mirena after 5 years and 5 months now. It was recommended and used at the time because I had such heavy bleeding that tampons and bandages did not help anymore. The onset was extremely painful, I had to lie in the office an hour later, because I was not able to drive a car. Had not expected this, just wanted to use the hormone spiral just before work. I’m not squeamish, but that was really hard. Had then about 1 month spotting and also about 6 months the period (but much weaker than before insertion). Then gain weight, 4 kg, inexplicable, because same habits when eating and moving. Mood swings followed, in addition to cysts that disintegrated of their own accord. I NEVER had any before the spiral. After about 3 years Mirena (I was fully satisfied, no period and the cysts did not scare me further) increased mood swings as in the burnout onset. After 4 years starting cervix cancer, Pap 4, conization. Mirena was removed for surgery and reinstated directly (the same, 4-year-old Mirena). December 5, 2011, the 5 years were over, but the FA said I should still carry them, because still hormones would be delivered and then I’m through the menopause. Strange, since I am 51 and I find that very early. Then in January 2012 total collapse, depression, suicidal thoughts, GAR NOTHING got more regulated and was written sick for the first time in life more than 3 weeks. Could not open a post, make any transfers, just sat there like an old woman and looked in front of me. That was not me anymore. No idea if it all related to the Mirena, but I would like to share this experience. Fought very hard and clenched my teeth, made a therapy, it works again. But I do not know where it all came from. I had the Mirena removed last week and since then spotting. Hope very much that they stop soon and that I am really through the menopause and get no more period. The spiral had the advantage that I did not get it. Otherwise, I very much hope that there are not other, long-term side effects. Amazing is, however, that with me several doctors have repeatedly claimed that everything could NOT be related to the Mirena. Maybe but ????????

    Mirena for Migraine

    I have the Mirena for three years. The migraine attacks are indeed almost gone (from up to 10 a month under the pill (Cerazette) to now 2-3 a year), but there were other supplements: Initially, I had about 6-7 months long bleeding. Since then, I still have long-lasting and very irregular bleeding. Mostly they last 15-20 days, then I have 10-15 days break, then it starts all over again. That is very annoying. Despite regular checks every 6 months, my doctor wants to leave everything so, because neither a pill nor the NuvaRing I could tolerate. More side effects since laying the Mirena: For two years therapy wg. Depression and mood swings, plus 10 pounds of weight gain, loss of libido and blemished skin. But I do not see an alternative – presumably I’ll have to hold it through to menopause. But I’m already almost 46 … – juhu! Recommendation: Changeable, the lesser evil. dieheideblühte

    Mirena: initial acne, hair loss, now after a year, everything externally good but inwardly miserable. Strong depression, big cyst, constant stomach intestinal infections, lack of concentration, often pinching in the stomach. Let them pull me next month, finally wants to get rid of the cyst and hope the depression.

    Hello, I let the Mirena use me 2 months ago, because my fa has recommended this to me as well. The onset was already very painful and the first week after insertion I had severe abdominal pain. Over this I had more than one month spotting and for about one month strong depressive episodes without direct trigger. Strong future fears and concentration difficulties are currently my constant companion … When I was with my Fa, that’s why she dismissed that as not coherent and even wanted to prescribe me a pill to do it … Besides, I now had two mushrooms within a month …. Thank you for the many testimonials !! I will let the spiral pull next week and then comment here again if it improves.

    Hello, I’m 35 years old and I got the Mirena immediately after the birth of my daughter 4 1/2 years ago. I came across this page because I googled a bit after talking with my girlfriend about the hormonal effects of contraceptives. I’m terribly frightened and at the same time soooo happy that my whole – since 5 years ongoing complaints now finally have an end. I never thought in the least that Mirena could be the cause of everything. I feel like every woman who has left her report here and complains about the bad side effects. I suffer from extreme depression, which I have treated by my alternative practitioner. Mood swings of the finest kind. We have a company – and a lot of stress – that’s where I put it. But in the past I was not like that either. I’m crying a lot, I’m not able to handle anything at all. Driveless – invitations to friends or nightlife at music events are cruel. I’m totally exhausted and at times suicidal thoughts are not uncommon. It’s absolutely no life to go through such things all the time. You are afraid of anything. The libido has been at zero for 5 years. I’m just lucky that my husband is extremely resilient and tolerant – everyone else would have chased a woman off and on. I can not confirm the weight gain with me, but everyone is different. Itchy skin and eczema are also there. I have a routine check-up with my doctor in 2 weeks and I’ll count every hour until then, because I’ll definitely have the thing removed on that day. I find it a very bad thing for the pharmaceutical industry and the doctors to let women into such a trap. I’m overjoyed to read these posts and encourage every woman to deal with the side effects – it can destroy families and even lives

    After 4 wanted pregnancies I had the Mirena Spiral inserted. From head free for the love !!! In 9 months 6 Kg., Very severe depression and anxiety, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, constant fungal infections, listlessness, mood swings, tiredness. That’s what I think of so spontaneously. When I was sitting at the Gyn., The helper said that I did not have to read through everything: everything was scare. Therefore, I did not know the side effects before. After 9 months I went to Gyn., And told him about my complaints (still not knowing that they came from the spiral)! He recommended to remove the Mirena immediately and used a copper spiral for me. The pull of the Mirena I did not feel. The setting was very uncomfortable. That was yesterday, in four weeks I have an appointment at gyn. and I’ll tell him how I feel now. One thing is certain: I will never use hormones again! Of course, not everyone is like me, my friend eg. tolerates the Mirena very well. (or she does not admit it) 😉 I would not recommend her. And to easily test if you can handle it, it is too expensive. (300 €)

    Hello, I’m 29 years old and have a 10 year old son. Shortly after birth, a copper spiral was used, which also slipped and was quickly removed. Then I got the Mirena spiral and believe me, the last few years have been the horror. Just recently I have looked at the leaflet online and reviews from other women. I’m horrified what the pharmaceutical industry is doing with us women. I have to say, the more disciples you are, the more the body may endure certain things. Over time, the following side effects gradually came to pass: headache, pelvic pain, aggressiveness, sexual aversion and severe depression, as well as suicidal thoughts and extreme loss of memory. For 3 years I run from doctor to doctor and partly believed that I soon completely lose my mind. Now I am probably in a phase of development in my life where changes are taking place and I am trying to find causes for all these health restrictions. I was looking for a new gynecologist (who is really gorgeous) and I had an almost one-hour talk with her, telling me that there are these side effects and many women are also responding to the mirena. Since yesterday the Mirena is out and I’m curious what will change in the next time in my body. I definitely advise against the Mirena that these insidious side effects are enormous.

    After 5 children I wanted a longer-term contraception where I did not have to worry too much, my gynecologist recommended to me the hormonal spiral Mirena since these 5 years, more or less, with no side effects, it would be very well tolerated and the hormones would Targeted only in the uterus and that very minimal, the body would not be as burdened as with the pill. I trusted my doctor and was looking forward to the very painful start to not having to do this to me now for 5 years and now I no longer have to worry about contraception, I was always healthy fit sporty and full of zest for life. The following side effects gradually appeared: Tinitus, insomnia, lack of concentration, tiredness, dizziness in all variations, weight gain, abdominal pain, bleeding, palpitations, nervousness, stressed, restlessness, depression, headache, headache, irritability, listlessness After three years I have I can not stand the side effects anymore, when I could not get out of bed for a whole day because of all the dizziness, I told myself NO that it really is not worth it, so I decided to have them removed. Unfortunately, I can not recommend them.Hormones are hormones whether in the pill or on the spiral who does not tolerate them should keep their hands off, so I for my part b Stay with the condom.

    Hello. I’m pretty shocked what I read like that. But somehow also relieved. I thought I was crazy. Have now my 3rd Mirena. October 2013 last exchange. I found the laying even though I was childless not too cruel. But it was not great either. I am 35 years old and wanted to reliably prevent 4 years for career reasons. So it was not OK to let the Mirena lay again. I have managed so well with the Mirena for the last 10 years. That was bomb. ONLY THAT NOW! In April I suddenly had complaints, nausea, howls, depression, sweating, sleeplessness, aggression, fatigue and at the same time restlessness and meanwhile I hate to visit somebody, water retention (up to 4kg), panic attacks, chest pain, migraine attacks etc. per month approx 25 days of pain with a huge, swollen hot bosom. Normally, I am active, facing others, very laid back, enterprising, physically fit. NIX out of the end. Was at the family doctor got a blood picture done. All values are great. Thyroid is also great … No need to worry. Then I am on gyn. Due to falls in the lungs, or rather slimy, bloody disgusting secretions, with back pain and abdominal pain. Conclusion. At the end of May, I was diagnosed with a cyst on the left ovary, but it was already dry. So died by itself. Estrogen excess – body thinks he was pregnant was the statement of the doctor – may happen again, but does not have – na primmmmmmmaaaaa – then breast examination. Two cysts discovered. For mammography but only for safety. Had to cancel 2 appointments, because I have only breast tensions and can not even say when they come and go. In the last two Mirenas I had a very reliable. Cycle. And never bleeding. Now in July I have the same symptoms again – I’m fed up. Tomorrow morning I have an appointment to move. I want to be myself again and not hormone controlled. I’m glad if this thing is finally out. Contraception must then somehow go differently – that settles already. Until October 13 I would have recommended Mirena to everyone and there are plenty of people who get along just fine. I thought also 10 years. It was also like that … but you change yourself too and at some point the body suddenly says NÖ! I started to hate this thing in me …….By the way, GV is not to think at all, because I have absolutely no desire. In the head sometimes, but that’s gone very quickly, because I feel completely stressed out of all this. In addition, since the last use little secretion still exists. So furztrocken … So from tomorrow a hormone-free life – jihaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa – I’m happy. Dorina

    Mirena for Pain (acute)

    Hello, have read your reports and unfortunately I am also a hormone spiral Mirena negative case. My FA had recommended the spiral as totally safe and without any side effects. Hardly any menstrual bleeding, etc., anyway, everything should be totally great. Of course, I relied on this statement and got the spiral inserted. As soon as the spiral was inserted, everything went different than great. I had from the first day, and every day at the same time, pain in the abdomen and every day as massive as labor at a birth. The FA said this will happen eventually. Does not have it! After several weeks of massive depression, we decided to remove the coil. Thank god, I’m the los. At that time my mother had remarked, child it is a hormonal spiral, so what, I thought. But what I did not realize was, every woman gets a different contraceptive pill prescribed. When hormone spiral every woman gets the same dose, at least I was not asked for hormone sizes then. I think that every woman should be protected with the hormonal spiral, therefore, the maximum is set for all women. But that is not healthy, at least not for women who have lower hormone levels and therefore can not be exposed to this elephant dose. L.G.B.

    Side effects: Depression; Abdominal pains
