    Default Mirena Side Effects?

    I only had mine in for 2 weeks but I had constant cramping and sex was painful. Cramping was gone the next day too hubby is away so I haven't had sex since.

    I haven't had any issues with my mirena (apart from falling pregnant with DD3!), am now on the second one and I don't have any side effects that I am aware of.

    I don't get AF at all, but once a month get some bloating and the occasional cramp for a day or 2. Otherwise no problems, loosing weight is not an issue recently went from a size 14 to a size 10 just by increasing my exercise.

    None of the other problems people have mentioned are an issue. I'm really happy with the mirena, love that I don't get AF!! Much better than the heavy flow I used to get and 10 days of cramps, nausea and exhaustion.

    What about other symptoms if you had them? How long before they got better?
    Headoverfeet I hope you feel better soon.
    Danielle, I can't really say. I had/have PND, I think I'm just about recovered now but I don't know if it pre-dated the mirena, I just can't say how much it contributed. It was all mental problems with me, I think I was struggling before I had it in, but If I was to graph my feelings, you would see a massive dip around the time I had it in. Who can say? I am terrified to use anything else tho, I won't take any contraceptives, my body and mind have had all they can take and that is a very sad thing to say.

    Snap. It makes you feel so schizo, crazy angry lady one day, normal the next. Tho I do tend to be sensitive to medication, I took Larium for an Asia trip 12 years ago and that sent me into a depressive state to :$

    Gothel, thanks. Yeah, I guess thats the thing with me too especially with the anxiety symptom. I did already have anxiety/panic attack problems before the mirena but it has gradually become worse since the mirena. I guess that bit could have been me too, who knows.

    I do feel a bit better today. It's hard to say whether it's because of the mirena itself or just because I made the decision to get it out and it's finally out after waiting so long for my appointment.

    I don't need contraception (girls are ICSI) so I don't have to worry about that bit but I had terrible periods so will have to deal with that again until I get it sorted.

    My Gyno seemed to think it's very rare to feel like a crazy person on the mirena but he did admit that it does happen. Seem's SO much more than very rare though.

    Just wanted to give the heads up for those looking at having it removed, make sure you have not had unprotected sex leading up to the removal, I had mine taken out just after ovulation and a fertilized egg implanted= pregnant (ended in m/c). Wish my doc had of asked!

    Default Mirena Side Effects?

    A lot of what the previous posters are saying with side effects. I had that as well. But the most prominent one was the high bp. Pre mirena 100/60. During mirena up to 160/138. It is a less discussed side effect but it can be life threatening if left untreated. I was put on antenol which has helped. But now I am utd. I had my mirena in for 2 years. Only having it removed late August this year.
