    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 Thrombosis

    I already have my 2nd Mirena – despite minor side effects – I would never give it back …. The 1st Mirena was 5 years in it, without any problems to do in any way. No bleeding, nothing. Then she had to get out and the new one in. Here I had the first problems, because the laying of the spiral had problems. 2 days of pain, but finally everything was okay … Approx. 3 months later, the first abdominal pain started. It took a long time (my gynecologist had meanwhile retired) until a doctor found a cyst that was 3 cm in diameter and presses at full bladder and causes pain. Nevertheless, the Mirena remained – I can not take a pill. Meanwhile, the pain is not so common, if it hurts I know that I have to go to the toilet as soon as possible … I will also put a 3rd Mirena again.

    Side effects: Cyst formation

    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

    Hello, short history: In 2007 my second daughter was born. Since birth, I suffered from chronic bleeding, sometimes less, sometimes with no pain. It was a cervical shortening and a Ausschabung made. However, all this has not changed, the bleeding was always my companion. In 2011, my third daughter was born, in advance I decided, after the end binding, for a uterus removal, but it was not granted to me, since I was still too young for it, it was said by the clinic. In 2012, I decided on Mirena, because for me nothing else came into question, because my liver could not or could not handle the hormones. In 2013, my FÄ stated to me, that I have water deposits in the abdomen, so from the KH, there were so many investigations made; Diagnoses: Two cysts on the right ovary, which were removed by the abdominal mirrors and then sent in. They were negative and no reason for the bleeding. The FÄ spoke of regular and weaker bleeding and this then without pain by Mirena … Meanwhile, we have now 2016 and I have to say, it has still not changed! A new Mirena ?! No, I am now 40 years and if it has not gotten better, then maybe. really only help the uterus removal. LG 🙂

    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.

    Hi, I have the Mirena now for a year and can not recommend it: – The insertion was hell (I have no children) and really hurt terribly – In the first 2 months after insertion I had 3 cysts, which also have hurt a lot (especially when running) – from the 3rd month came extreme menstrual pain (the rule was indeed weaker, the pain but stronger than in front of the Mirena) – since this month I have since just before ovulation, so now good 10 days, pulling / pain in the abdomen Conclusion: I will let me pull the Mirena. Question to you: Did this pain / tearing in the abdomen with you sometimes over a longer period before. I’m just seriously thinking whether the Mirena has also prevented me safe. Greetings.

    Immediately after insertion: bleeding and light abdominal jokes for about six weeks. In the first half year: sweats and hot flashes, as well as severe hair loss, as well as extreme tiredness to exhaustion and vertigo attacks. My FA denied (quite irritated) any connection with the Mirena! The internal medical examination showed that I’m completely healthy organically! After six months of lying time: first an ovarian cyst of 4cm, then at the next check two months later an ovarian cyst of 8cm (!). Both cysts regressed under estrogen treatment. Since then, the rule is only very irregular as a slight spotting. I then changed the FA, which very probably considers a connection possible. He nevertheless advised me to wait a bit while pulling the spiral. Have since the onset of Mirena until now 8 kg increased (despite consistent diet and exercise). Now that after two years of lying still severe anxiety came to it, my partner has decided to sterilization. I hope that after the removal of Mirena, I will soon become the old, well-balanced and cheerful woman I used to be!

    Good morning I have had the Mirena spiral for two years. When she was put to me, I had endless pain. In the weeks after, I still felt the whole thing in the abdomen. Sometimes I even felt it when I just sat down. Then it went better. Well, for half a year I have more and more water in the tissue and I am also again (which was also the case with the last pill.) Then at the beginning with the discontinuation of the pill 8 Kg and now through the Mirena I have now I also have swollen feet in the evening but what bothers me the most are the swollen swollen breasts, even wearing a minimizer bra that supports the whole thing.The nipples are also very swollen and hurts, and I can not stand up in the evening In addition, the last exam again and again cysts were detected, which I had not before.had now decided to remove the Mirena again, but must also say that the gynecologist was not properly informed and also no brochure or the like has received, where you could inform about it!

    Mirena for Bleeding

    Leave the Mirena after 2 months tomorrow. It was only through the osteopath that my pain could be related to the spiral. Got 3 cysts in the abdomen and 1 cyst in the thyroid within the 3 months. Strong back and pelvic pain. Pain in the wrists and ankles. Muscle pain in upper arms and legs. I hope the side effects diminish soon after pulling the coil. My conclusion. Never again…

    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.

    Good day dear fellow sufferers, I have the hormone spiral Mirena on 17.07.2013, 6 weeks after the birth of my daughter, let lay. This was not very painful, I thought it was ok. My gynecologist recommended the Mirena as a very safe contraceptive because we do not want a child anymore. The doctor gave me before inserting, a week to think and the leaflet with. I have also been informed in the week about the side effects in forums, but thought that I do not meet these agony. After the Mirena was laid, I first had my first period after the birth of my child and followed, according to my doctor, the normal spotting, to settle in to the spiral. This procedure lasted about 1.5 months. After that, extreme abdominal pain followed, I was already thinking of contractions, went to the doctor and this only said that the body just got used to it. In September / October I had a lot of stress and lost a lot in two weeks, so friends of mine thought I was anorexic, but I have to say I was always very slim before pregnancy and I had the same stress as others, but never lost so much weight. Then from the time of October to December including a short break of 10 days, completely bled … Sometimes weak times strong, but no end in sight. Several gynecological visits and painkillers prescribed for abdominal pain, as well as 2 cysts in the relatively short time. Nervously I was built very close to the water, which was not before. The end of the Mirena, however, I had 3 weeks ago, when I finally had another 2 days no bleeding and then but had very severe pain in the GV, it was over for me. Why do I need a contraceptive if I only bleed and, especially with GV, have pain and no longer feel like it? It was clear to me, get out with the part. When my family doctor also reported blood results from the last decrease and asked me to let the coil go because of the chronic bleeding, because I have a Lyme disease that needs to be treated urgently, it was 100% clear that she had to go out , I then made an appointment a week ago with my FÄ, this had no objection, even said that it is better that way and that it just does not suit me and so I have today after half a year, the Mirena let go. I felt a bit better right after the draw, because I had such a very bad feeling of pressure in the abdomen, it just hurt, was gone … It was the spiral itself. My FÄ said in the draw that the spiral itself already had solved itself, so my body would have repelled the Mirena quasi …. So it has felt the last days: O I just hope that my body levels off again and I hope soon again have a regular cycle, because I do not know this at all now. I do not regret laying and early pulling because I know my body, it just did not fit. Just a shame about the money, the health and body sensation. Never again Mirena!

    It all started with a bladder infection. After taking the antibiotics, the fungal infection followed by a cyst. That was 1 ½ years ago. Since then, more and more Zipperleinchen have been added to the diseases mentioned: flatulence, total exhaustion, sweating (especially at night), back pain in the lumbar region, breast tensions (z.Part my breasts were already so sensitive that a light touch has already caused pain), extreme Mood swings, permanent abdominal pain, hypothyroidism, weight gain, loss of libido … As with many other women too, I have now walked for more than 1 year from doctor to doctor, until a colleague told me last that she had heard that frequent bladder infections from the HS would come. Then I started researching. Meanwhile, I have with my suspicion that the complaints come from the Mirena, my FA changed. After he had listened to my story, he first wanted to exclude other causes of my complaints by extensive research. He then told me the result on the phone … .You are completely healthy – there is no reason to worry … For my abdominal cramps, he then recommended me cranberry tablets …: – ((On Friday I let me get this thing out and hope then that the nightmare is over …

    Hello, I’m 34 years old and wanted to share my experiences with the Mirena. I let them put me in early 2015 after the birth of my daughter, because I did not want to take the pill again and so wanted to burden my body with fewer hormones. The shot went completely backwards ….. At the beginning I had a 5.4 cm cyst at the first routine examination, which had to be treated with additional hormones! What irony, I wanted fewer hormones. Thank God, she left alone. After that, the odyssey then really started …… Constant breast tenderness on the left and that so much that even the smallest touch made me twitch (sleeping on the stomach was no longer possible), hair loss on the head, but excessive hair growth at other parts of the body, nonspecific abdominal pain partly with spotting, totally blemished skin especially on both arms (t-shirt is not possible anymore in summer) Of course I did not get a leaflet and was not asked about the side effects. Creeping then came now even more anxiety and concentration problems and also the next cyst sneaked in (5.7 cm ….. had to be treated again) With all these side effects, I was with my FA and he has me always with the statement sent home that it could in no case be due to the spiral. Now I let her go and hope for improvement …… Consider exactly what you do with your body;)

    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

    I’ve had Mirena for 16 months now. I had a lot of pain on insertion although I had my baby 1 year earlier. I could not leave the practice for 2 hours, because I could not drive a car in pain, I was in a real state of illness after insertion. Then came 6 months with the worst spotting …. without pause. Not just when I should have had my days. I also had that. Then I want to let things pull me, had an appointment already, and the bleeding were gone. Nice, I thought to myself. I then had 2 months rest, no bleeding, no complaints. Then I got stomachache left down, constipation and increased. It could not come from the spiral, I was told. But I did not change anything else in my life. After a long back and forth, a larger ultrasound was made and found a cyst on the left ovarian. Aha. Ok, wait and check in 3 weeks. There she was gone, the stomachache too. The next case was stomachache on the right, again to the doctor, a mini cyst on the ovary. Then followed by 4 months of permanent ache on the left, always the same cyst or a new one each time? Nobody knew. Recently, I’ve gotten hormones to the spiral to, orally, to see if the cyst goes away, but has not worked out. Then last week I wanted to have the spiral finally removed, but it did not work out because after 16 months the return button was gone. 3 Painful attempts to fetch her so failed. Tomorrow evening I get a short anesthetic to get rid of the part. I would like to take the pill again which I have tolerated well 15 years ago. Oh yes, my migraine has gotten better under Mirena, but the meds I’ve always taken did not work anymore. I hope that everything starts again tomorrow as it used to be, so that I can take my migraine medicines successfully again. And depressive moods and anxiety had also increased during Mirena. I would never recommend her if somebody got on well with the pill.
