Mirena causes all kinds of side effects, hormonal imbalances, estrogen dominance, silicona and copper toxicity, etc. I recommend everyone who is serious about stopping all their unbearable side effects to watch the video on this page: mirenadetox

I was constantly cramping and bleeding with the IUD, so I removed it about 4 months ago and haven't stop bleeding since. Have anyone else had this problem?

I had it inserted 7 weeks ago. I have been lightheaded and dizzy the whole time. Almost passed out at work (I'm a nurse at a hospital) and went down to ER to find out I was in SVT. After 3 doses of Adenosine, 2 doses of cardizem and a cardizem drip for 24 hours I was finally stable and started on lopressor to keep my heart rate low. I found out my potassium was low at 2.9 and also my TSH was a little elevated. Apparently the mirena can cause low potassium levels too. It was a life threatening situation I will never forget. I'm also having pains in my legs, headaches, anxiety and numbness/tingling. I'm a very healthy person. I eat right, exercise and drink my gallon of water a day. I get the IUD out tomorrow and I can't wait.

Crayz iud. I had it inserted because of heavy bleeding last month. I developed 3 ovarian cysts and had laparascopic surgery to remove them. I had severe headache and felt lightheaded all the times. I have been running to ER all this time, palpitations, shivering and sweats. I also felt fever all the time but thermometer will read normal temperature. I can hardly move without my husband's help. Muscle pain all the time. My tongue felt metallic throughout and i have been eating same food all this time. I really cannot differentiate from first trimester of pregnancy . This is actually my second attempt. The first one stayed like 2 weeks and I had it removed because of same side effects. I am just from my gyn now. I have removed it. I still very bad and sick. I hope things will settle soon.
I do not recommend this to anyone.

I strongly recommend watching this video to learn how to get rid of mirena's nasty side effects and understand how it is causing weight gain and other serious side effects. This video has helped me recover and get back to my normal self again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWdfrR7tU1k

The mirena made me gain a lot of weight even though I had it for only 4 months. I couldn't lose the weight no matter what. Also, it caused me all kinds of side effects, hormonal imbalances, estrogen dominance, silicona and copper toxicity, etc. I recommend everyone who is serious about stopping all their unbearable side effects to watch the video on this page: mirenadetox.

I got mt mirena in sept. 2011. Shortly after i started getting skin ulcers/sores. I have also got eczema and psoriasis now. After a bunch of testing and medications, there has been no improvement but worst of all no answer. No doctor can tell me what's wrong and after some internet searching it sounds like what I'm experiencing right now is something other women are experiencing because of mirena. Or maybe it's not the mirena.

Hi,I got the Mirena inserted 6 weeks after having my second baby, April 2008, I had finally stopped bleeding so they put it in. The insertion didn't hurt that bad and as soon as it was done I started bleeding and hurting but just thought it was normal since a forgien object was just inserted. Well I went in for a check up after insertion since my OB didn't put it in he asked how everything was I was already having a lot of side effects but the main concern was my bleeding I bled for 3-5 months heavy he told me if it didn't stop it would be removed luckily I stopped bleeding. The pain was horrible during sex it was so painful I didn't want to do it, this was hard on my marriage. I had head aches which I never had before, mood swings, I was never happy because I was in pain, I was light headed a lot, nauseous , trouble sleeping, I would have hot flashes. I refused to have it removed because I didn't need a 3rd kid at my age. Then in may 2010, I was at a friends house with the kids and got real sick, pale, sweating, nauseous, cramping but wasn't on period. I stood up and something pulled in my stomach and I fell to the ground I went to the dr and did a pregnancy test came up negative so did an exam and told me I needed it removed ASAP but the dr that put it in had to remove it. Made my appt and because I had no insurance it was 100 for removal if I wanted to know what was wrong it was another 80-100 if needed to be removed still had to pain the 100, I knew it needed to be removed so I did that and it hurt so bad being removed. Afterwards, I started to slowly feel better still hurting some in November I got pregnant and some complications. I had him in July 2011, I started having horrible pains, migraines started, pain before during and after periods, pain before period around 2 weeks I was diagnosed with endometriosis I had my scope done dec 2012 still haven't had anything done, we think the Mirena had something to do with it because I had no problems at all until I had it. Even though it served its purpose as birth control I regret ever having it and do not recommend it for anyone.
