    Mirena for Breast span; Hair loss; Cyst formation

    It started very slowly, after about a year. So I got hair loss, cysts, hot flashes, breast tenderness, my days did not come back, my mood was depressed and anxious. In short: I felt like an old menopausal woman (am 21). To completely ignore my sexual desire, she had reached zero. It took me a long time to find out where my problem lies. My gynecologist praised the Mirena before inserting the highest notes, because of side effects free etc. ???? With my problems and stillness, I went to her to describe my complaints. She’s a big fan of my asking if this could be due to Mirena. Your answer, but NO, I would be the first with these complaints that she would never have heard, all other women get along wonderfully. These complaints can not come from the Mirena. After the examination she said that organically everything was fine, maybe it was because of the stress. The body also needs some time to get used to it. So I had my tranquilizer (My course brainwashed) and was a little reassured. Only my complaints did not stop, as if my body would never get used to it. So again to the doctor, this time 2nd opinion, other doctor. He was just like that. No side effects, the greatest thing it ever z.Z. At the examination he discovered a cyst and said he had to treat them additionally with the pill Qlaira, I as a non-expert and still the completely trusting sheep, let him grant and swallowed good the pill. I was getting worse and worse. I rummaged on the internet and found my complaints black and white. I found afflicted women with the same complaints and the worst I ever got was fooled and lied to by my treated doctors. I realized they were trading for the money and not for the people. Mirena is a lucrative merit, since it is best to keep quiet about the side effects. I also found out that Schering issued so-called Rote Handzettel to all specialists, but unfortunately they continue to deny the side effects under Mirena before their patients, or refer you to a psychiatrist. Long live the money and no longer the human being. I have the Mirenanach 3 years in the hospital emergency room removed. Finally, I had severe abdominal pain, inflammation in the urinary tract and again cysts. Be smart about this spiral, question everything. The doctors know the warnings of the industry and they are deliberately kept secret. CHATE YOUR LEGAL GYEGOLOGIST for the suffering of the many young women.

    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 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

    Hello, I had the Mirena laid about 2 1/2 years ago, after I absolutely did not want to become pregnant with two adult children and over 40. My gynecologist recommended the hormonal spiral so that I can rest for the next 5 to 6 years. All of my concerns about side effects have wiped her away with explanations. So it was time, the insertion of the spiral. On the first try, it did not work out, my cervix is too firm despite the birth – nothing went – so one month waited and right on the first day of the bleeding back. The stretching of the cervix was absolutely painful and lasted quite a long time. When it was time and the Mirena was used, I had the feeling she comes through the uterus and abdominal wall back out … pain without end, the circulation has cut me to a huge pool of blood was with. I have to stay in practice for over an hour – they gave me 800 ibuprofen. After that I had about 6 months constantly pulling and pain, my days were sometimes much stronger than before. After 6 months it got better – the FA said my uterus is fighting against the spiral so badly. That happens … Then I was a few months better, the bleeding was less, no more pain. But after 9 – 10 months it went off with hair loss, no more desire for sex, funny thick yellow discharge, nausea, cystitis, frequent headaches …. and then came as insidious depressive moods to depression. I never had anything before. My gynecologist only said that does not come from the Mirena – can not be. And she does not know a woman who has such problems with Mirena. My girlfriend has a similar problem and goes to the same gynecologist … In the last investigation a few weeks ago I’m back with the gynecologist and she is still of the opinion, that does not come from the Mirena. Now I researched on the Internet and found that there are many women with the same problems. So, my decision is firm – the thing comes out again after nearly 2 1/2 years – and I hope, I’ll be back soon as good as before … There are certainly women who tolerate the Mirena well, but me think it’s all shit that the gynecologist do not enlighten about any side effect, but pretend that all this has nothing to do with the Mirena. Please think carefully, if you use such a part !!!

    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

    Mirena for Sleep disorders; Mood swings; Libido disorders; Acne; Cycle disorder; A headache; Pain (acute)

    I am shocked and do not even know where to start writing … I had Mirena put on after the birth of our third child, because I put special emphasis on the safety of contraception 🙂 headaches and bleeding over half a year, it started. Then one after the other came: bad mood, mood swings, Ausraster where I stand partially off and wonder about myself. I almost always have abdominal pain and the libido is not only zero, but really moves in the minus area! Then it went parallel with pimples in the face (is getting worse !!!) And sleep problems continue. Now night sweats were added. And so hard that I have to change at night. The spiral has been in it for only a year, but seen a year too long, because I had no fun in life at the time. Next week the thing will come out irrevocably !!!

    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.

    Abdomen – abdominal pain especially during ovulation, (worse than at the mens) different strength / days of bleeding during mens, listlessness, fatigue, bladder infections, permanent fungal infections, headache migraine, blemished skin / greasy hair, all started very slowly. The good thing is hardly gaining weight in contrast to my old pill, but venous problems in the legs

    I let the Mirena use 2 months after the birth of my first child. The gynecologist praised the product and said there were hardly any side effects, without handing me the leaflet. The first time was really exhausting. I constantly had irregular bleeding and pain. It took almost half a year until this phase was over. Then I did not get any bleeding anymore, only a slight brownish discharge. I suffered from severe back pain in the lower pelvis, loss of libido and general listlessness. I’ve often asked what’s wrong with me and could not initially connect it with the spiral until I read the leaflet on the Internet. After intercourse, I often had pain in the vagina and uterus and slight discharge the next day. In addition, a constant slight pain in the uterus accompanied me, although the spiral sat correctly. (Made an ultrasound) My partner could not stand my body odor and is very relieved that he can smell me now, after she is out for 2 weeks. Also, the libido has come back and it is again as it once was (-: 14 months Mirena instead of 5 years and I’m really convinced that she was drawn early, even if that was a short painful and exhausting fun for 300 ¬ I just say: better leave!

    I’m not sure why I’m always so bad. Bad skin, extreme hair loss, migraines, depression, tinnitus, sudden hearing loss, bad mood, extreme fatigue, always total fatigue, difficulty concentrating, loss of libido etc. etc. Causes lie in the hormonal spiral Mirena. Have meanwhile 1 copper spiral and 2 hormone spirals behind me, with the 2.Hormonspirale removed in the next few weeks. It’s really time to get rid of this impossible thing the gynecologists are making their big money on. Bad advice in gynecologists regarding the very bad side effects. Never again Mirena !!!

    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 getting my daughter (today almost 6 years old), after having had a mishap three months after giving birth to me and my husband, I was told by my doctor to use the hormone spiral Mirena either after the pill or if I would like to avoid it in the long term , Since I have trusted my doctor blindly, as he is more likely to fall back on homeopathic medicines, I did not question this. After she was in, I had half a year bleeding permanently. After taking an additional hormone in tablet form (progestogen) for a few days, the bleeding stopped and my period stayed off all the time. This is also a desired side effect of the hormone spiral. For four and a half years, I actually forgot about the spiral, but there were more and more body ailments, which I initially always pushed to other causes but in no way led back to the spiral. After I had because of constant gastrointestinal complaints such as diarrhea, stomach ache, constipation 2 gastroscopy and a colonoscopy, nothing was found in both investigations. My depressive mood, and since the onset of hormonal spiral constant insomnia and when I could sleep, I woke up in the middle of the night and suffered from shortness of breath and got panic attacks with sweats. Then all the organs were sonicated and examined by me (thyroid, pancreas, bile, etc.) fortunately all normal and even now I was not thinking of my spiral. Then I consulted a psychologist and here, too, it got worse and worse with the panic attacks. In addition to the weight gain of 10-15 kg (which just did not want to go away (even with sports and nutrition there was nothing to do)) I suffered from total libido loss. Then I could no longer tolerate certain foods at once including various fruits and vegetables with which I had never had a problem before laying the spiral. After accidentally stumbling across the internet about the side effects of Mirena, I realized to my horror that the complaints of other fellow sufferers 1: 1 with my complaints. My marriage was threatened with the side effects, because I was only depressed and had no desire for affection. Since I had to think about it anyway if I wanted a new spiral or not, I decided against it and then wanted to let me go. However, this was also more difficult than expected because the retrieval thread was no longer found and finally I had to pull the spiral under anesthetic in an outpatient surgery. So far so good. After the removal of the spiral, I went through all the side effects that have crept in 4.5 years within three months in the time lapse backwards again. Today, my husband says he finally has his wife back. None of the symptoms described above are still part of my life. I would never let the coil be used again. And since then warn every woman about it, as the side effects can go on slowly and have massive effects on the whole life.

    Mirena for Bleeding

    I can confirm all listed side effects after 3.5 years. I bought for 420 EUR illnesses or let it turn. Except for a glossy brochure, a Mirena Pass and the bill I received nothing. My gynecologist has not mentioned a single side effect, but turned me on the solution of all my complaints for a usurious price. I let me remove this bastard now from another doctor.

    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!

    I am now 30 years old and have used the mirena after the birth of my son. everything sounded good, no more rule, 5 years of protection, only locally acting gestagene, almost never problems observed, etc. I agreed, but it was completely different. I had my rule for about 1 year, then it stopped slowly. it was not that dramatic, but the other changes were really bad. I got sweats, shortly after the bath I was already sweaty and smelled unpleasant (so typical hormonal), I had zero lust for sex with my husband. It was over 3 1/2 years that I have rarely slept with my husband. which of course did not necessarily meet with great enthusiasm. I had a headache and unbearable whimsy. when we had sex, I had pain and it was unpleasant. sometimes my husband had to stop, because the thread had made him feel that he was hurting. It was a disaster. have cut the thread, nothing brought, have told of my complaints, got only the information: \\\ That can not come from the mirena, which works only locally, if I make them out, then she is out and if they still have the complaints then they get annoyed. So, let them in there. In the end, it got so bad recently that I was sick for weeks, I got sweats, just lay on the couch and was totally at the end. All the internist things were clarified until I got the advice from my GP that I should have the mirena removed, maybe I have a hypersensitivity. because according to her statement small amounts of gestagene go very well in the bloodstream and if you do not tolerate, it comes to such an impact. What can I say, the mirena is outside and I feel like I was born again. no nausea, no sweat, my pimples disappear, my whole general condition has improved, good mood, lust for sex, fun again, no pain. All I can say is that I think there must be better education about what you do to your body with these hormone hammers. for me it is clear – never mirena

    The first time I still thought that happens over time, the body just needs his time to get used to the unfamiliar hormones. But I can not (and do not want to) think about the symptoms because they can not – they are too massive for that. Have had yesterday night with unlikely nausea, sleep bad at night, must go out often (it grumbles in the stomach, often diarrhea) – I do not know that, I am known for my solid and deep sleep and had a firm for my intestinal activity rhythm. Furthermore, I can hardly look at myself for several weeks in the mirror – bloated, ablafft, tired. I could spend the whole day in bed. Do not eat any other than before, walk – no chance to hold my weight; Let alone reduce. And that, although he spoke really well on change conversion, in the evening only fruit, etc. Was not a problem for me. Furthermore, I not only feel sexual disgust, but even aversion to my beloved work. Must think and fight every morning, so I really get up and go. I’m moody like a teenager and so emotional that I cry for every bit of it. Yesterday I decided to have my spiral removed.

    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 €)

    I had the third Mirena spiral inserted in June 2010, as it was recommended to me by my doctor so. The onset was bearable, a little stomachache, little spotting. After a few weeks I was physically so bad that I googled my complaints. I came across this forum and I got a light on. So decided to the doctor with the desire to remove the spiral again. With my request, I fell on deaf ears, the Mirena was well tolerated, my complaints came from private stress and my physical work. The doctor talked me into the spiral (cost so much, I would have a bad conscience to you.) But if I really wanted it then I should come back. Okay, I thought, hasty decisions may not be good. By now it has become March 2011 and my various complaints have not improved. I count on what bothers me, what I feel worst first: Constant tiredness and listlessness (every activity is a torment, I have to get myself up to everything), constant exhaustion, almost every day tension or pain in the chest (lately with pain up to under the armpits), mild nausea, loss of libido, often headache, a dripping nose all year round (allergy tests were negative), pain in the groin with pulling up to the legs (heavy legs), numb hands, dry skin. Yesterday I was back at the doctor and I have the Mirena removed, she tried not even to persuade me again. By the way, everywhere you will find in this practice Mirena advertising, In the waiting room various brochures, in the hall, in the treatment room. A rogue of evil thinks …. Now I’m curious how I’m going in the next few weeks, I hope the veil of fatigue and pain is lifting!
