Life after Mirena IUD
I have a story to tell with few questions. I am 36 years old and in 2014 i had a Mirena IUD put in. For the next two and a half years i had small annoying issues like hair falling out, periods getting longer and lighter instead of stopping, dry skin etc. I went to my OB multiple times to figure out what's going on and got put on oral birth control too.
Then one day I started having allergic reactions to everything even though I've never been allergic to anything in my life. In the coming months I developed extreme anxiety, heart palpilations, fatigue and stomach problems. Finally I got fed up with it and went to the Er and the doctor pulled the Mirena out. A month later I had my hormones tested which showed that I have very low progesterone and I was put on bio progesterone cream 50mg. It eased my symptoms but never took all of them away, three months later the dose was increased to 75mg. To be honest I don't use it everyday because it scares me. I start using it and than I get one of the weird symptoms like blurry vision or foggy brain and I got scared and stopped.
Please help reassure me and guide me on how to take it and how much? Will taking it every day hurt me? And will these symptoms go away with time if I take it everyday? I am on 100mg/ml hrt that a pharmacy compounds for me. And another question would my overies pick up progesterone without the cream? I waited 4 months after Mirena to start the cream.
