I had mirena fitted for heavy periods and endo over a year ago! It was brilliant for stopping my periods but omg the side effects have been bad! It's a long story but they include cramping, irritable bladder, terrible anxiety , feeling nervous , depression , aggressive behaviour ,confusion, thrush hip pain and hair loss( receding male pattern) .
The scary thing is no gp was willing to put it down to the mirena . Only when I got put on antidepressants did I push for referral and finally saw a consultant who said it does cause mental issues in a small percentage of patients!!
Please be very careful the progestin levenorgestrel has been banned in the Norplant due to the awful side effects and this is absorbed into the blood stream!
I was so desperate I removed mine myself which was easy and painless but would always recommend a practitioner removing it! I feels so much better already am so happy it's out!
