Im 29yrs old and I have had the Mirena for about 2yrs now. I've always had a high sex drive but lately it has been higher then normal. My fiancé and I could have sex that night and after where done I'm like ready to go another round. I can wake up the next morning and would want to have sex. My normal sex drive is usually 2-3x daily and has been like that for years but now it's like I must have sex 3-4x daily (morning, afternoon, evening, and night). I'm not bipolar nor was I ever diagnosed with it. I have been diagnosed with anxiety but its mild I only experience anxiety when I have to fly thats the only time I take anxiety meds. Can someone please explain?? Is it possible that I have that hyperactive sexual disorder??

Yes I have experienced the same thing, and like you already had a high libido but my sex drive is through the roof, though I am also 44 and it's often said it increases in your 40's. I didn't need an increase, and find it very distracting...my Mirena is due to be changed next year and now after reading your post, I am considering looking in to it further and possibly braving having it altogether. Yes guys might think a woman with a genuine crazy high libido is fantastic, but there are downsides to it, and I have to make sure I keep myself occupied with other activities so it doesn't consume me.

As a future health professional, I do believe that changes in the body happen frequently especially as you age. Just because you've been on the Mirena for two years does not necessarily throw out the fact that it may have caused an increase in your sex drive. You can never predict when your body will develop a sensitivity to something, it can literally occur at anytime. I got the Mirena inserted about 4 days ago and I was shocked because my sex drive has been through the roof since about 24 hours after it was inserted.
