My Mirena coil was fitted January 2016, and I thought it was perfect for me. I no longer get any periods, I have no endo pain/cramps/PMS.. It is (and still is) giving me a better quality of life.
The only downside is a sudden outbreak of acne, I suppose it started about 3 months ago. I noticed sore areas along my jaw line and then a few days later there would be a huge boil like spot. Some times they are so painful I have to sleep on my back because having my face against a (fricking soft) pillow hurts!!
I have no idea what to do? Do I really want the coil removed because of the acne? I don't know! Has anyone else suffered with acne while using the Mirena? And why was my skin spot free through out the first year and a half?
At 28 years old having acne like a teenager is really bring me down.
