    Mirena for Endometriosis; Pain (menstruation)

    In November 2015, I had the Mirena babble on, as my gynecologist said to have discovered endometriosis. After more detailed explorations in the circle of acquaintances I learned that with the ultrasound this mucosal proliferation is not necessarily recognized. However, I had already used the coil at the time and had to fight after an allergic shock in the full-nose even with severe bleeding and abdominal pain. This was followed by spotting and strange labor-like pains until January. Also in other experience reports named breast pain and hair growth on the chin were added. The complaints were dismissed by my gynecologist but as abdominal pain, with which I was referred to the internist, but found nothing and also said that my complaints would sound like menstrual pain. In order to initiate the rule since the end of the spotting odyssey, I still got chaste tree, which changed nothing after two months on the condition. Oh yes, and a support pantyhose was also prescribed to me, as he would recommend such slender dainty women like me for the circulation. I found myself in some experience reports again and am appalled that behind this Mirena seems to be a big pharmacy business. This also resulted in research on application forms of the corpus luteum hormone. The constant stimulus on the cervix has more effects on other parts of the body than expected. In spite of fear of repeated anesthesia (to which I reacted so badly), I am thinking about having the spiral removed again and, as before, using the condom to prevent hormone-free. Maybe that’s why I react to the Mirena with severe abdominal pain, because I had little contact with other hormonal contraceptive methods in my 31 years of life and was careful with any medication before. As far as I read here, women were more likely to tolerate the Mirena, even if they had been taking the Pilla for years. I will continue to follow the topic and look for reviews.

    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 !!!

    Never again Mirena !! When, after about 4.5 years, I happened to bump into Mirena more or less by chance on the various forums and posts about Mirena, it struck me like scales from my eyes !! I made an appointment directly with my FA and the culprit was drawn just over a week ago. Since then, the following has changed in my life (Thank God very quickly or immediately and hopefully permanently): 1. Constant urination — I had pushed on my two births, thought: great, half incontinent with late 30 — after Pull: OFF !! 2. the feeling of being at least 90 years old, if still alive: WAY !!! 3. Lack of energy, felt burn-out, everything too much, everything exhausting — I had pushed on overwork because of children / work, although I was always aware that my work is actually to create or should be — WAY! ! 4. super-dry skin on the face and on the head: is beautiful to have my soft skin given back … wonderful !! 5. foul-smelling discharge, always having the feeling that I stink and have to take a shower: OFF !! 6. increased hair growth (especially on the chin and on the legs) — I can not judge yet. 7. Aggressiveness, the non-acceptance of physical closeness, often zero in people and sociability (to go to kindergarten alone to pick up my daughter cost me every time a huge overcoming): OFF !! 8. I also always had a funny feeling in the mouth … very strange + disgusting … also feels much better, but I can not yet 100% on the Mirena push … 9. My stomach !! My waist !! I went to FA last summer because I was 100% sure I was pregnant … but I was not. I had almost constantly (at least emotionally) a belly like in the 4./5. Month. — PATH!! 10. Constant diarrhea — not yet resolved, but I also have hope here :-)) 11. Deteriorated vision because of too dry eyes — not yet resolved: – ((Mannoman, I feel like new born and I’m especially mad at me, because I’ve done it without batting an eyelash, I think my side effects appeared after about 2 years, before it was okay It’s all the more appreciated that it makes you happy again after such tiring and bad times when you do not even know what’s going on with you, like many of you, I ran to the doctor because I did too thought I was sick for sure but thank goodness not the case !! I can only say: NEVER AGAIN HAPPY HORMONE FOR ME !!!

    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

    Hello I have 10 years ago, the HS-Mirena use on the recommendation of a friend who was totally excited. The first 5 years were great I did not get pregnant anymore. Target achieved but I have gained weight, but symptoms such as irritability, chest tense, flatulence, back pain so typical regulatory symptoms I still had every 4 to 8 weeks and a slight bleeding synonymous. And what I noticed is always at the end of its shelf life so after 5 years my symptoms and bleeding became longer and stronger. I explained that it was normal because the hormones were used up. After inserting the second HS then came some strange (side effects) added things. I got hair wuschs in places where it is really bad to shave: ‘). Long black hair, I was always gereitzer so I’m fast on 180 with little things. Again, I cry at the smallest emotional things which is not my nature. Gastrointestinal discomfort (irritable bowel syndrome), respiratory chronic sinus inflammation, whistling bronchi (asthma). Now at the age of 42 years, I had the presumption that I’m in menopause because I develop more serious symptoms night sweats, bladder weakness, high blood pressure, extreme hot flushes, sleep disorders, even more extreme mood swings and inner restlessness, which limit my quality of life very much. But my HS is again over the expiration date. I went to my gynecologist and she said it was quite possible. And wrote me another HS on. Since I’m the first time over 42 years I do not know if my symptoms are normal for my age or if it really has something to do with the Mirena. Meanwhile I weigh about 97Kg if I am well balanced and burn daily over 1400 cal. I have also excluded all other metabolic diseases such as diabetes, Schliddrüsen hypofunction. I am now completely unsettled when I read the reports here and since I am again in front of a spiral changes, I would like to know whether the side effects have been specified here after the removal of HS have waned or even disappeared. So please diligently answers if I should expose my body another 5 years of Mirena or let me convince you because the side effects disappear.

    Unfortunately, only after 6.5 years Mirena (2.Hormonspirale) lights up on me. Also I was never informed by my FÄ (1st spiral another FA) about the side effects, but only about contraindications that they either slipped or might grow in. There should be no side effects, one drummed. That this is the greatest contraception that there is, no question, because lust for sex, I hardly have. Quite apart from the loss of libido, my skin has changed a lot and hair growth has increased enormously. Of course, only in places that should be reserved for men. My chin is now covered in inflammation and scars, as I am dedicated to my morning and afternoon ritual of stubble removal with tweezers. The hair grows, despite constant exfoliation, in the skin and this inflames. Without covering the places with tinting cream, I dare not leave the house. Although I’m dark in type and have always had more hair, but not to that extent. On the toes, back of the feet, chin, buttocks, Pofalte they have now increasingly settled, are still hard and black. Growing, shaving, plucking becomes everyday. 1 1/2 years ago I even bought an expensive device for permanent hair removal with the light technology. At first thought it would also help on the chin, unfortunately not. But my biggest problem is the permanent itching all over my body, mainly on my back and arms. Am for years at the clarification at the house or dermatologist. Since I used to have a mushroom braid, I thought I would never get rid of it. Here are circular white spots after scratching, which I can detect all over the upper body and arms. My family doctor said, with the tablet cure for skin fungus, the problem would have to be finally resolved, since I already a year often a shower cure for the disease and did not help. But I did not realize that this had already been fought for a long time. yes, no skin fungus was more evidence. Nevertheless, itching and permanent white patches of skin, which are very pronounced in summer and ugly to look at. A terrible burden, because until the evening intensifies the itching and prevents falling asleep. I had no explanation yet, already bought acute sprays for itching for neurodermatitis patients, made sea salt baths and am now still every day 2-3 times creaming and make the itching more bearable. In addition, since a few years hives, which makes itself felt in the cold. Already at 10 degrees, itching pustules on the thighs form when I go walking. Also, in the evening, all of a sudden, I got hives all over my upper body. Inexplicable, because I did not eat or did anything special. Neither detergent change, nor food change changed something. You get totally crazy because nobody can help you. My sister advised me wg. hair growth and itching to remove the spiral, as this had to be the trigger. Never, I thought, can not be, did not want to believe her. Why? No FA confirms that, as many women read here. After all, is a lucrative business with the spiral. The patient is secondary. Sometimes one gets the feeling that here in agreement of all FÄ the side effects of the Mirena are simply rejected and concealed, in order to keep the business going. Other side effects include flatulence, bloated abdomen with malaise, as if you were pregnant. For some years diarrhea, sometimes so strong that the chair is only watery. An anal thrombosis had to be removed a few times, so the proctologist advised me not to push so hard during bowel movements, which would cause hemorrhoids and thrombosis. He did not believe me the diarrhea, because I have according to his statement have a hard bowel movement. A colonoscopy, therefore, I had to endure even over me. So, nothing fits together anymore. Still ask me if all my complaints are triggered by the Mirena. Two years ago, I still got pain in my tailbone, without it would have fallen on it. At some point it became so strong that I could not sit down normally anymore. After about 1 1/2 years, a CT was finally made. Of course without findings! No periostitis or anything else to prove. Pain is my constant companion, as tendinitis in the arms to the wrist, as osteoarthritis is also suspected in the shoulder joints. As well as osteoarthritis in the knee and cervical spine. Inflammation can never be detected in the blood and I am absolutely pumperlgsund. Since many women here indicate back pain and joint pain, this pain could also have to do with the spiral. Unfortunately, one can not prove this. The coccyx
