    Mirena for Dizziness; Pain (back); Fatigue; A headache

    Hello, tomorrow it’s been a week since I decided to wear a mirena on the advice of my FÄ and I can only say that I regret this decision every day since then. Surely there are women who tolerate the Mirena very well. They will also seldom have the need for me to share their experiences with safety as those who are as or similar to me. And I clearly belong to the women who see the cause of their illnesses in the HS and would like to get rid of them immediately. I felt the need to get out after 20 years of a pill that was interrupted only by a pregnancy, and I was actually a hormone-free form of contraception. Therefore, I made an appointment with my doctor to let me clarify the possibilities here. In this consultation, she praised me then the benefits of Mirena in such a convincing way that I moved away from my actual plans and finally let me issue a recipe for the Mirena. She described the hormonal influence on the body as so slight that my misgivings in that direction dissipated. The brochure of the manufacturer gave it to me also in the hand and I have the advantages shown, unfortunately, very hasty and much too uncritical can be misleading (even this forum, I have unfortunately only discovered after inserting). At the beginning of the next menstrual period, I immediately had an appointment and immediately drove into practice the next day to be able to count myself among the lucky wearers. I would have left it! Already the insertion has brought me back to the bottom of the facts – it hurt really hard, and I’m sure not worried or sensitive to pain otherwise. Also my cycle made me from the moment considerable problems. When after 5 minutes quite pain in the lower back area occurred, the doctors commented that it could not have been triggered by the Mirena; after all, that would be in the stomach and not in the back. After stabilizing somewhat, I drove home and spent the rest of the day on the sofa, because from the time I got there, I felt increasingly sick and dizzy. So the whole week went into the country. The nausea comes and goes (it reminds me in this form the first two months of my pregnancy) and all the time I feel like I’m on cotton wool. I’m totally exhausted after this week, can not work and drag me through the day. To top it all, in addition to the recurrent pain in the lower back, I also have cardiac arrhythmias, which were already there before, but have also clearly become more violent after insertion. Unfortunately, I did not read all the reviews on this page until after the first two days I still did not feel better and therefore I researched for the first time on side effects in the net and landed here. Some fellow sufferers, unlike me, have come a long way with all the complaints and I’m just sorry. I have come to the conclusion and can only say that I will not do this malaise for half a year. Luckily, my family is really great. My husband is particularly sorry – he has finally urged me after the past weekend to get an appointment with another doctor and let me withdraw from it if necessary HS. The costs are secondary to my well-being. This helps me totally and I am also aware that not every woman – especially with regard to the costs – can behave in their decision accordingly and wants. I will go on Friday and assume that my episode Mirena will then be finished. This comforts me through the extremely noticeable nausea even in this moment. All in all, it can only be said that the Mirena is an expensive experiment and one can only advise everyone to first think more about considering alternatives and not just inform oneself.

    Mirena for Dizziness; Fatigue; A headache

    By applying the Mirena I had many side effects headache, nausea dizziness. The worst thing is that I also got brain cell shrinkage. This is called Hydrocephalus that can be fatal. These were too many hormones at once. I almost forgot weight gain and hair loss

    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.

    Mirena for Cycle disorder; Bleeding

    Have now been 6 months, the Mirena. So far every day lubricating bleeding. Cramping, nausea, dizziness, breast tenderness, night sweats and extreme fatigue. This was followed by a 4 cm cyst and three months’ intake of chlormadinone 2mg fem. This made it better. Now I have a bacterial infection with an antibiotic and then with lactofem to help restore ph in the vagina. Against the spotting I take parallel desogestrel first for a month. What can I say. If it does not get better now, I’ll let the spiral go.

    Hello … my first HS I have 3 years well tolerated. Then it started so bad with breast tensions that I was super sensitive and could not even push my kiddies anymore. I then had her out in the summer of 2004 and tried half a year with a contraceptive pill. Unfortunately, I did not tolerate that, so I let my HS use again in December 2004. Had total pain … even days later. In the first time it was then quite well … until I realized after almost 2 years that I was just tired, broken, etc. I then tried to regain control of vitamins. It gradually came more and more: hypothyroidism, thyroid surgery, tinnitus, dizziness, restlessness, sadness, neck complaints, sinus surgery, depression, aggressiveness, constant bleeding, moodiness, abdominal pain … etc. Then I ran from doctor to doctor and was allowed to listen to the most amazing things 🙁 Then my L-Thyrorin had suspected that it was too high doses, but it was not because my lust for life was now almost at the zero point. Since yesterday the Mirena is out and I hope that it will be better now.

    Hello, I had the Mirena use 4 years ago. The insertion was already hell. Days after that I still had bad pain. But after a few weeks they passed. My period came very little and then not at all. I just felt good. After 2 1/2 years, I suddenly had a few side effects, such as dizziness, nervousness, sweats. I did not associate this with Mirena at first. After 3 years had passed I suddenly got hives, itching and burning in the genial area, strong discharge. My FA said that everything had nothing to do with the spiral, which I also agreed. But as my discomfort got worse, I let Mirena pull me (Nov. 07). I got my period after that. Then she stopped again and the itching and burning came again. Now after 8 months I got my period again, for 14 days, a week break, again my period, again a few days break, etc. I am constantly with the FA, which still says that it would not be due to the spiral. He just said he had no explanation for taking the pill again, then stop that. But I think that can not be the solution. I’ll despair of it soon. Now I’m rid of the thing and still have constant after effects. I regret it so much that I let them use me, but my gynecologist praised the spiral in the highest tones and said there were no side effects, as with the pill. I never saw a leaflet. When I let myself be printed out in the pharmacy, I first knew what I did to my body. I can only say FINGER OFF, even if the first 2 years are great. I think you have to take them off the market.

    I was the Mirena: every day anxiety that got worse and worse, I could only fall asleep very badly out of fear of anxiety, I suffered from constant palpitations, tachycardia, I felt a constant tightness on my chest and often real heartache, I had Dizziness and could hardly get air, my rule was the use of completely away, I had no desire for physical closeness, I could not live through the symptoms of my normal daily routine, I thought more often that I was seriously ill and only even had a short life! It was even so bad that I was driven to the emergency room at night because I got a violent panic attack and could not stop shaking! It took me 6 months to realize that it was the Mirena. No doctor could help me …. and stamped me off as a psycho case !!! Only through the internet and the firm will to find out what happens to me, I have come across the side effects of Mirena. I let Mirena go and my symptoms disappeared on the spot or the next day !!! Now I can finally live again!

    Mirena for Bleeding

    Caution: The Mirena has caused ischemia-like symptoms in me. Especially in the last third I had increasing circulatory problems, numbness or feelings of weakness in arms and legs, threatening respiratory distress, rapid heartbeat and panic attacks especially at night, but increasingly also during the day, so that I felt suddenly as disabled and almost incapacitated for work, as if I were close to a stroke or would have suffered one already. Motorically, I became quite insecure and often had dizzy spells. In addition, I suddenly developed high blood pressure, which was something completely new to me. My internist put me on beta-blockers and cortisone, which had relieved the respiratory distress, but not the remaining symptoms. Since the only change in the last months was the Mirena, I let them remove me to act on the exclusion principle. It was discovered that she had slipped and probably also was possibly defective and thus possibly had overdosed an overdose of levonorgestrel and had caused a kind of poisoning. My internist, as well as my ENT doctor, both said that the severe and sudden symptoms in me might very well have something to do with the Mirena, and that they are quite systemic, that is, that the active ingredients get into the blood. In the 1-2 days after pulling the Mirena, the symptoms were still extreme, then abruptly after. 1 month later I was almost completely stabilized and normal again. I learned from the doctors that there is a risk of thrombosis in the case of the Mirena. So dear women, please do not naively approach this product, because it is not harmless as well as some pills.

    I have Mirena for 4 years, the first years everything was ok. I was satisfied until I fell over half a year ago and came to the hospital under suspicion stroke after which I am umversek I could not speak for about 6 hours. Since that I am really bad I have anxiety, depression, headache, I would examine whole body it would not set anything organic. I go to work every day and I’m afraid that something can happen, I can barely drive because of dizziness. I still get my days regularly, but two weeks before that begins with my discomfort breast tension, itch in the vagina, mood swings, headaches and strong dizziness so I think I fall over the same. A few weeks ago, my colleague approached me about the HS and told me that her friend had almost the same complaints and had the HS taken out, since she’s fine. I also think about reading my dear ones. I first thought that maybe it’s not okay with me, my husband even advised me that I might go to the psychiatrist, I’ve never thought in life that the HS so ausirckung, but after which I now read the reports I am convinced that it is the spiral. I’ll make an appointment with the FÄ as soon as possible. I thank you for your experiences.

    After a good 1 year I let me remove the Mirena again. In the first 6 months there was no problem. Simply gorgeous, no period except 1-2 days very little spotting. Unfortunately, over time, more and more symptoms developed that got worse and worse. These included: breast tenderness, pimples, flatulence, weight gain, worst migraine attacks, nausea, dizziness, circulatory problems, itching all over the body, tingling throughout the body, rapid heartbeat to the worst panic attacks with dread. I did not know these symptoms before in this form and strength. I did not get much help from the doctors. It just said you’re getting into menopause. So I started to look around myself and came across the page. 3 months ago I had the Mirena removed. In the meantime, I have no more of the o.g. Symptoms. I have come to the conclusion that my symptoms are due to the synthetically produced gestagen in the Mirena. It seems that some women with a variety of side effects respond to it. Others are not.

    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

    To all fellow sufferers! First and foremost I would like to thank everyone who has taken the trouble to leave a contribution. After all, it is quite possible to overcome such symptoms. I can only say that after reading the posts I know what to do. The spiral must go! I feel the same way as most here. 2 years ago I had the hormonal spiral laid. For about 5 months I have the following complaints, which meanwhile burden my life very much. Constant dizziness and panic attacks, trembling, inner restlessness, mood swings. I barely recognize myself. I’ve always been a fun-loving person and now I’m suddenly a Wrak. My husband and children are helpless when they have to experience me like this. Especially since I do not know myself what I miss. My blood levels are okay. Exercise EKK and long term EKK are normal. Now the visit to the psychologist was recommended! I do not know what to do there. I lead a happy life with my husband and 2 children. I have no Soregn, which burden me. And are we honest, the little worries in everyday life we all have now. I’m so thankful that I thought of this stupid spiral through this site. I have never come up with the idea. Was rated by the FA as completely inconspicuous! It would be nice. I will have this thing removed as soon as possible and hope that I will finally feel better again. I’m so exhausted that I make the worst stories every day. This is not life. Sad that one’s own FA takes any illusions and recommends visiting the psychologist! Thanks again and all the best for you! My conclusion: never again a spiral

    The side effects of Mirena come slowly. Usually after 2 years begins the negative effect of the spiral. Tiredness, unfocused, dizziness, nausea, weakness, insomnia, joint and muscle aches, masculine hairiness, itching, odor sensitivity, breast tenderness, altered body odor, muscle atrophy, head and back pain, water retention in hands and feet, brittle fingernails, panic attacks, muscle twitching. Mirena turns healthy women into sick women. In my view, the Mirena is not recommended ..

    Outflow, loss of libido, aggression, depression, decline in performance. The first 24 h after pulling I was in great pain, as well as after insertion. The first normal bleeding after pulling, after 6 weeks, was very strong. After pulling I also got dizziness, hair loss. Nevertheless, I’m glad to finally get rid of her. It was a terrible time, I did not feel well in my body because of the strong, stinking discharge. Fortunately, that happened right after removal. This gives me a much better feeling, since it is now natural again, as it should be.

    Got Mirena 4 years ago and wished it had never happened. I would have been better informed of the side effects by my doctor at that time. I had the Mirena taken out 4 weeks ago, and I’m getting better. My doctor still thinks that it could not be the Mirena, what With me in the 4 years happened.I have briefly gone through the hell on earth. It started with high blood pressure, Panickattacken, anxiety, head pressure, dizziness, listlessness, weight gain, fogged, … until I thought that I am going crazy. From one doctor to another, I ran, unfortunately, still have complaints that my hopes pass , I RATE ALL OF MIRENA.

    I had the Mirena Hormone Spiral and was very dissatisfied. Immediately after the onset of hypertension, panic attacks, vertigo, acne, cotton wool in front of my eyes, listlessness, fatigue, joint pain, vision, greasy hair, oily skin, weight gain, wailings, I could not sleep one more night .. My body was ready , All doctors have said it would not come from the Mirena. Then I came by chance on this page, thank god. I let the Mirena go immediately, although the doctor did not want that, but after all, it’s still my body, because I can do what I want. After that, all my symptoms were gone. Can not lie on the horn monster spiral …. cruel how many doctors deal with patients, I would like to sue the company, and the doctors. Rely on your gut feeling and do not let yourself be fooled. dear greetings Heike

    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.
