Re: Mirena Questions

Just remember that a lot of people's symptoms don't start happening until a year into it. I had mine for 14 months before I realized I had lost my appetite, my throat felt like it was closing, I had reflux and a lump in my stomach, I was forgetting things and felt like my head was in a fog, I had been diagnosed with carpal tunnel, and I had an unneeded mammogram. Since it's been out I've had a swallow study, colonoscopy, EGD, CT scan, ultrasound and still feel like crap. Even with insurance, those are expensive test. I lost 20# in the 1st month after having it out because I couldn't eat. I went back to my obgyn over the year and 2 times he convinced me to keep it. I wish I had listened to my gut. I wouldn't wish how I've been feeling on my worst enemy. It's amazing when you start messing with hormones how they can affect your body. This Mirena causes some to have menopausal symptoms which are horrible. You might want to do some looking into that. Also, I didn't realize how they can affect the GI system. I now know that my reasons for having diarrhea in the past are because of the ortho tri cyclin lo I used to take. It all makes since now. Good luck to you!
