I recently got mirena inserted at the end of June. About 2 weeks ago (beginning of August) I noticed a constant brain fog, then horrible spouts of dizzy spells. I also have experience a knotting pain near my pelvic bone, depression, tingling is hands and legs, memory loss and very low tolerance to alcohol. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Also I wonder if anyone who had mirena in for a short amount of time like me noticed a change in symptoms quickly after being removed? I'm having my taken out Thursday and counting down the hours until this horrible thing is gone. If anyone can share their post-mirena experience that would be great! I will as well once removed in 72 hours!

I've had Mirena for a little over 3 years. Throughout the 3 years I used maybe 3-5 tampons total, only needed liners. Last month I went through a box of tampons in 3 days and I'm having lots of cramping and just feeling off. I am planning on having it taken out in a month. What can I expect after removal?

I had the mirena inserted after the birth of my 4th child on drs advice. I had it removed after 3 years. Within a month of removal I was in great pain and went to the ER where they found a tennis ball size ovarian cyst. Was referred to get it removed. When they did the laparoscopy my insides were a mess. It was discovered I had an endometrioma and endometriosis all over the left fallopian tube which had to removed along with my left ovary. I had never had any reproductive issues and conceived 4 children, including twins, very easily. I believe the mirena iud caused these problems.

Major trouble breathing. Tight chest. I get dizzy and lightheaded, sometimes I black out for a few seconds. I'm having it removed in a few days.

I finally had the mirena removed yesterday. I have been having so many health problems ever since I had it put in. Including unable to SWALLOW FOOD! anxiety, depression upset stomach and non stop bleeding. Doctors didnt know what to make of it and of course they think im crazy because I blame it on mirena. Im 29 years old and healthy as can be then 4 weeks after I get the Mirena inserted all of a sudden I cant swallow and having severe panic attacks.

I had mine put in last June. Felt fine to start with. It released 6 months of constant bleeding and pain. Leading to christmas the symptoms reoccurred. I have been off work since January with severe pain and constant bleeding again. Just had a scan tonight. Been told I have endometriosis and the coil has moved and partially embedded in my womb! Been told it can be sorted and I can have another one. Don't really think I want it replaced but don't know anyone who can advise me who has experienced this!!

I to have been off since January with constant bleeding pain etc. I had mirena inserted last May to stop bleeding I had had the previous six months. A hysteroscopy was done at time of coil insertion and nothing found. In March of this year a scan was done and it was found I have adenomyosis and embedded coil. The gyny was very Vaugh last year week stating that he did not know if coil had perforated or were it actually was. Poss laparoscopy!!! The adenomyosis will be left as the embedded coil mirrors the symptoms and no follow up consultation. I told him never ever to another coil. If symptoms persist I again have to go back to doc who referees me again to gyny etc etc etc! At my wits end because gyny was not thorough in explaining it to me and I had to find out through Internet. A complaint has been put in place to nhs but feel like I'm in a no win situation!

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
