Re: Does the Mirena cause yeast infections

You are a God send. I have been suffering with this in silence for so long.
I got the Mirena 4/16/06 and got it removed 11/29/07. My last real period was July 2007.
I have been miserable-not even realizing it was because of Mirena-you know cause all of docs say it ONLY has a local effect, yeah right.
I've battled with the vaginal odor thing too-bacterial vaginosis-fish smell. Had a standing prescription for Metro Gel to help with that.
Update-The Rephresh has helped somewhat. Though I had a short period where I curded out of control after insertion, it was like yeast die off effect. If I don't get better. I'm going to have to go to my primary care and demand something stronger. I believe the yeast gets immune to routine anti-fungals. I've heard Nystatin is suppose to be very good for killing yeast. I'm going to research it some more.
I'm so frustrated. I can't hardly remember my life before the recurring yeast infections, disfiguring acne, obscene weight gain, migraines, curding vagina and bouts with depression. LOL-I summed that up!
I can't figure out the metallic smell though. I've searched high and low with no success. My Naturopath thinks that it was something metallic in the Mirena. I don't know-why am I still smelling it though it's not as strong when I had the Mirena. I've had it out for 17 days.
Soooo Did you do the saliva test? I haven't did it recently cause I know i'll have strings. It'll just piss me off. Do you have any children? Are you still smelling the metallic smell since removal. When was your last yeast infections. Did you experience any heart palpitations after removal? What does your doc say about the recurring vaginal infections?
