Mirena IUD upset my hormone balance
I had a Mirena IUD implanted about 5 years ago. Not long after I had it implanted my period stopped altogether, however, I did get sore swollen breasts from ovulation time till the time my period was meant to start. I gained about 15kg which I found almost impossible to lose, although I did manage to lose it after constant dieting and excercise. I also had crazy mood swings etc.
I eventualy gave up on it as it was more hastle than it was worth.
I had it taken out and strait away put the weight back on. I have had it out nearly 2 years ago now and still can't shift the weight. I am still getting extremely sore breasts at ovulation and get anxiety and mood swings.
My body was fine before I had the Mirena put in, and I never had any of these problems beforehand. I dont want to touch anything with synthetic hormones in it again. It has really stuffed my body up.
