    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 Sweat; Cyst formation; Libido disorders; Overweight

    3.5 years ago, 8 weeks after the birth of my son, I had the Mirena Spiral inserted because I definitely did not want to get pregnant again quickly and the hormone spiral was called a very safe contraceptive without the side effects of the copper spiral or the pill , I was really happy with the spiral until a few months ago. Although I still have my period, but not very strong and absolutely regular. That I am sexually absulut on the zero point, I have pushed on overwork, stress, problems etc. Lately, however, I have increasingly suffered from night sweating, weight gain and cysts. This, as my gynecologist once told me, could well come from the spiral, but that was at a time when not every 6 weeks such a monster went off in hellish pain. After I have already given an appointment for the removal (in 3 weeks) since we now want a second child, I’ve dealt with the possible side effects here on the net and have repeatedly come across the same experiences on different pages that coincide with my symptoms. I’m not a doctor, and I’ve pushed all those hormone stories always on my 2 years ago removed thyroid. The values are always in the frame. In my opinion, the causative factor is apparently really the spiral, and hope (especially my husband :-)) that the side effects after the removal will be!

    Mirena for Pain (joint); A headache

    I’m sooo mad !! This beforehand … Have for 7 months, the Mirena spiral (due to heavy bleeding, iron deficiency). Have hardly any bleeding – but that is the only thing that works. Otherwise I have the following symptoms for three months: – from one day to the other daily joint pain in the fingers – again headaches – strong susceptibility to tension (especially neck area) – permanently cold hands – tiredness – sensitive breasts – 6 kg increased in 6 months ( despite exercise and normal food). Certainly a lot of – water retention in the legs and associated with something – stronger varicose veins I was in the last three months: – once with the gynecologist (The spiral is actually very well tolerated, you are probably exhausted., Working too much, right?) – twice with different family doctors with twice blood findings at intervals of one month: no gout, no rheumatism. Probably finger arthritis, because you can unfortunately do nothing, except ointment lubricate (I was horrified !!! And I was afraid, how to continue!) – 8 times with the massage á 70 euros for the persistent neck pain – and have hours of my life for the independent search on the various complaints spentbecause apparently no doctor can think combined !! That’s just crazy! Since a few days, I suspect and at least since reading the other stories of suffering, I’m sure (ALL, completely SAFE) where all this comes from this Mirena spiral! And I wonder too: how can such a thing be allowed !! Have the gynecologist already spoken to tape, that I want to have an appointment immediately. Am SOOOO SAUER on this WOMAN !!! (Incidentally, I paid 500 euros for the insert Please pay cash and without invoice!). – I will print the testimonials and give them to the FAREWELL. I’m glad if the thing is out and with the heavy bleeding I’m getting better after this horrible experience also better.

    Mirena for Breast span; Edema; Pain (joint); Pain (back); Overweight; Pain (acute)

    I let 2 hours ago insert the H. spiral. Before I let them insert, I have in various forums on event. Side effects read a lot and thought that these many women probably exaggerate powerful and I do not necessarily have to get these side effects – especially not so many at a time. For 1 month I have joint pain, in addition to various other side effects such. Water retention in the legs, extreme breast enlargement and stretching, back pain, extreme sweating, oily hair, weight gain (4 kg). At first I had joint pain with elbow strain, then wrists, finger bones, knees and for a few days my hips hurt. The pain disappears again and again, and then come back after a few days. I’m currently being treated by the orthopedist. The result of the blood test, if any rheumatism, is still pending. My gynecologist said that does not come from the spiral, my new gynecologist meant what else – if I previously the o.g. Had no problems. I have decided to let them get me and believe firmly that I am as good as before the Mirena, just a little pain in the menstrual period and a little heavier bleeding.

    Mirena for Aggressiveness

    My 1st Mirena I have after the birth of my son lay and was synonymous with no problems with her. There were no difficulties when inserting and not in the entire gestation period, I felt positive that there was hardly any bleeding and if , then the matter was done in 3 days. The 2nd I left, without questioning, because I have them well tolerated, after the birth of my daughter insert. Puh-the insertion was painful and for the rest of the day I had a lot of pain (like putting an umbrella in my stomach) in my stomach and back, I could barely stand up, let alone walk. With a slight headache It started and spread to irritability, constant fatigue, sexual listlessness, but also listless and impulsive in everyday life, greater appetite aus.Ich got not only hair loss but also gray hair. About 1.5 years ago, I have the Mirena removed, meanwhile, I am in psychological treatment and can also equal to the divorce process. I am not only 20 kg heavier, but also in essence very changed; I have always been a positive and happy person. I can only guess that the choice of contraceptives should be carefully considered!

    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 Menorrhagia

    I got the first time the minera after the third pregnancy, at that time I still breastfeed. In the last 15 years, I have increased dramatically, so I’ve almost doubled my weight to a few pounds. I’m always hungry, I’m slightly deperssiv and my libido has diminished extremely. I’ve never really thought about it, because my complaints are indeed dismissed as typical gynecological problems. Although I have no more bleeding, about which I’m glad. Since I have always had / have exterm heavy bleeding and back pain throughout my life. But the fact that I have grade 3 obesity does not make my life worth living. I hope my son by the spiral in the nursing time did not hurt. But he was a screaming kid, which is not unusual.

    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 for Cyst formation; Cycle disorder

    I am a smoker and did not take a pill. Nevertheless, the Mirena was recommended for the prevention of cyst formation and spotting of gyn. The first 8 days after use of the Mirena, were still accompanied by bleeding. From there began a carefree life for 15 years. Every 5 years, I received a new hormonal spiral and had no menopausal problems, cysts or spotting. Unfortunately, the weight grew and although I was doing sports. Nutrition changes or increased sports use could reduce the weight. Then … In 2010, at the age of 58, I received a diagnosis of breast cancer, although no family and relatives have cancer. Now I wonder if smoking and Mirena could have led to this diagnosis. Who might also have experience smoking and contraceptives with Mirena.

    Side effects: Increase in weight

    Hello, I’m a real stone from the heart, after I read here from the many testimonials and mine are so very similar! Pro for Mirena is the lack of menstruation and the elimination of troublesome pill intake. Unfortunately, the list of the Contra is much longer. Massive hair loss, fast-drying hair, pimples, irritability, restlessness, tachycardia, digestive problems and the worst of all the enormous weight gain (18kg). My breasts are swollen from 70c to 85d and always with tense pains like milk after breastfeeding. But not only the breasts are like the end of the pregnancy and my stomach now looks like I’m 9 months pregnant. I eat very healthy, do sports but the weight is not significantly reduce. My baby bump is stuck. In the summer I was often asked when it was so far (birth). That made me so insecure that I let myself be tested for a brotherhood. My friend has since left me he was tired of my eternal irritation. Then I must mention here that I am only tired, which I attributed to my sleep disorders, for which I could find no sustainable explanation. I’ve always had the suspicion that it might be related to the spiral, but all the physicians I interviewed said it was always negative. On the contrary, I always heard the opposite, the spiral has a positive effect on the skin, hair and the aging process of a woman. On Friday I have the appointment and I will free myself from Mirena lasting! I wish I had found this site here rather nice, then I would have spared a lot of suffering. I was able to move my new partner to a vasectomy in August. Now only sperm light is available and I can finally get rid of this monster! Never again!

    After recommendation by two gynecologists, I decided after two pregnancies mainly because of my ever-strong monthly bleeding for the prevention with the Mirena Hormone Spiral. Although I have initially bothered somewhat because of known side effects, but I finally decided very consciously and with a positive attitude to it. I’m definitely nobody who inhales leaflets in his details and looking for side effects – in which case I have informed myself about the fundamental risks and lifted the note. What can I say? – After initial enthusiasm because of the painless laying and the significantly reduced monthly bleeding I could have written the leaflet myself! After I kept getting worse and worse, after almost a year I studied it more closely. I had gained eight kilos, was extremely fickle than otherwise balanced character and went up with every little thing like a bomb (great with two toddlers !!!), probably through the water retention in the legs I had extreme joint pain in the feet, on the chin and Thick black hair suddenly grew around my mouth, I had permanently swollen and aching lymph nodes under my armpits while my bra size grew from D to F, the allegedly only spotting became permanent and my generally poor condition ultimately caused a loss of my libido not only with me, but also with my husband. When I finally got abscesses in the genital area (passed harmless) and on the temple (had to be treated with antibiotics and made for the swelling of all lymph nodes around the ear region), it was enough for me completely. (Incidentally: The lymph node swelling under the armpits, I have all clarified – had no other, even malignant cause.) So I decided after less than a year to let the Mirena again. For six weeks, I’m now rid of the spiral. But after the drag, the fun went on: After two weeks, I suffered a fall bleeding, so I did not come for two hours from the toilet and at the end in the emergency room. Although the bleeding passed after a few hours, but I was now advised because of the strong bleeding tendency to let the womb lining. After our family planning is definitely over, I let that happen. Everything went well and I wonder why I did not decide it right away. And otherwise? Woman will ask: I did not have to wait the average indicated time of about the duration of the spiral until the side effects subsided. By now I’m three and a half kilos off without a diet, my old bras fit almost again, lymph node swelling are gone, joint pain much better, no more abscesses, the mental fluctuations are gone and most importantly: I can with my dwarves again without risk of Rage also look forward to chaos. My husband is relieved too. If the whole thing digested first and the abstemious time after surgery is over, that will be back with the libido 🙂 Well – and the black hair on the mouth part I stop and hope for their disappearance. CONCLUSION: The Mirena may be well tolerated in other women, definitely not with me. I would have gladly spared the 350 euros and the associated martyrdom! Oh yes: the hormone release is by no means as low as stated by the manufacturer and NATURALLY the hormones go into the bloodstream and not only act locally! This has now been scientifically proven. It is a scandal that both the manufacturer and most doctors do not acknowledge and admit that !!!

    I have had the mirena for almost 5 years. The onset was very painful and in the 5 years with Mirena I had many complaints that fit into the picture of side effects. My doctor said that of course this could not be related to the Mirena and I resigned myself to it then. Well, I’m looking for a new contraceptive and have also come across a number of reports about Mirena. Now I list the side effects that I have since. The doctors have not found another cause: headache, weight gain, pimples, decreased libido, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal pain, and for about a year strong, almost unbearable pain during orgasm. not always, but depending on intensity and position. I changed the doctor and now change over to the copper chain

    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.

    I got the Mirena in October 2010. At that time, I was 23 years old and had to deal with migraine with aura. According to my gynecologist, the Mirena was the best and healthiest alternative if I was to prevent myself. First it was said that my period would then fail, the spiral is drawn after 5 years and then can be used again at will a new one. The setting of the spiral turned out to be problematic for me. Unfortunately I had so much pain that it was only possible under general anesthesia. The next 2 years after that ran off without major complications. Although my period did not last, I had significantly less bleeding than before. After two years, everything changed abruptly. All of a sudden, I always had abdominal pain. Everything drew together, so that I could not stand in part. The pain was bearable only with the intake of at least 1800 mg ibuprofen a day. From 28 days I had about 15 days with pain. During this time I also took about 15kg. Before that I had a weight of 60 kg and then 75 kg at 1.69 m. My skin deteriorated rapidly and I can no longer speak of a libido. I was tired of all the affection of my partner. So I decided to let the spiral go early. This was again possible only under general anesthesia. Since this day I have NO pain, my skin is clearer than ever and the libido has come back. I only have to work on the weight loss. The kilos unfortunately do not disappear by themselves. As a conclusion, I can only say: I would not recommend a young woman to let the Mirena set. I really do not wish anyone that pain.
