Mirena IUD With PCOS Experiences?

Mirena IUD With PCOS Experiences?

Hi my name is Merel (32) PCOS and im from Europe.

- I want to know if trying the Mirena Coil is a good idea with PCOS since i've red that Mirena interrupts a woman's natural hormone cycle, but less than the birth control pill and that worries me because my natural hormonal cycle is horrible with my PCOS
- I have already placed the coil yesterday but now im worried, should i be worried?
- Should i give this a try for 6 months and see if I like the results?
- Should i track my weight, pcos… read more

I had the morena iud after the birth of my first son, and it really messed with my mood. I was constantly in a "blah" foggy place - I never felt really happy. I had it removed after 10 mos because I… read more

Mirena IUD

Mirena IUD

I've had the Mirena IUD since 2014, and it has not regulated my cycle. I have had a few periods since, but now I've been without once for a year. Has anyone else experienced this problem with this IUD?

A myPCOSteam Member

I had the Mirena for 4.5 years and I didn't have a period at all until the 4 year mark. When I did start to get it back, it wasn't very heavy it was extremely light.

What Are Other People's Experiences With Mirena?

I'm going into hospital tomorrow to get the Merina put in. I've been living with chronic pain for almost 3 years and this is the last alternate treatment i have before a laporoscopy - that would mean checking for endo and if nothing is there, undiagnosible pain.

Mirena isn’t perfect, but it’s done a lot of good for me with endo and PCOS. Relax when they put it in 😊

Any Other’s Who Have Or Had A Mirena IUD And Thoughts On It?

Any Other’s Who Have Or Had A Mirena IUD And Thoughts On It?

SOS, I need advice and personal stories. I’ve had Mirena for about two years now. I simply wanted it for its sole purpose as birth control. Due to insurance issues and what not, mirena covered my IUD for me so i was limited to options as to which IUD was good or best for me. I tried a bunch of different birth control pills before and I hated every single one of them. I either bled every two weeks, gained excessive weight, or was a moody b*tch. My mom still thinks my moods swings may be cauased… read more

Experience With IUD?

Experience With IUD?

I've been on tri lo sprintec for the past almost year. I've been so unhappy with it. The obgyn wanted me to be able to skip periods and I haven't been able to. It's caused me to have extended periods that are still as heavy as before. Also, the weight gain from water retention has been awful. So I've been looking into the mirena IUD and just wanted to know of any experiences with it, good or bad. I'm concerned how it would affect me having pcos.

Abnormal Bleeding !

Abnormal Bleeding !

Hello Everyone!

Has anyone else experienced prolonged bleeding while having PCOS?? I’ve had this “period” since December 2017 and was recently put on birth control to stop the bleeding due to becoming anemic. I’ve had a Pap smear and it came back “normal”. Is there something out there (besides birth control) I can take to stop this issue?

Thank you,
Monica

I was put on BC to help with my PCOS. My last two “periods” were really just spotting. This one has been three days of medium to light bleeding. Has this happened to anyone else of birth control? I take my sugar pill week, usually take them at the same time everyday.
