Initially, the Mirena IUD has some appealing benefits. Mirena is a very effective form of birth control, able to keep you from getting pregnant for five years. It’s virtually a no-maintenance contraceptive, unlike birth control pills or condoms. After the initial insertion procedure and follow-up, the woman doesn’t really have to do anything…if she doesn’t experience any of Mirena’s various side effects, that is.
The possible side effects of Mirena IUD include:
- severe abdominal pain & cramping
- irregular spotting & heavy vaginal bleeding
- weight gain
- mood swings
- fatigue or low energy
- low interest in sex or other pleasurable activities
You may also be at higher risk for:
- ectopic pregnancy
- pelvic inflammatory disease, or PID (due to improper insertion)
Not every Mirena user experiences these side effects, but many of them do. If you are one of these women, you should consider removing this IUD and begin using the Mirena Detox Program to cleanse yourself from its effects completely.
How Does Mirena Cause These Side Effects?
The human body produces natural hormones. For females, these hormones– namely estrogen and progesterone– keep the metabolism at a normal balance. Upset this balance (i.e. insert a foreign object like an IUD into your uterus), and you will experience the subsequent discomfort and pain. Irregular bleeding, cramping, and other symptoms are the results of your body’s attempts to restore the balance. These side effects can persist for months even after Mirena removal.
Mirena contains artificial progesterone called levonorgestrel (pronounced “lee-va-nor-jess-trel”). Once it is inserted, the body will stop production of its natural form of progesterone. This process throws off the body’s metabolism and creates the negative side effects. Levonorgestrel tends to deposit within adipose tissues (a technical term for “body fat”) of your body, which causes weight gain. Levonorgestrel can remain in your body even after removal of your IUD, which can cause further cramping and discomfort.
Cases of severe bleeding from Mirena can cause additional problems. Fatigue, lack of energy, dizziness or brain fog can result from this constant blood loss. These symptoms have affected many women’s health, careers, and general quality of life.
Mirena users can also suffer from various levels of acne. During normal use, Mirena interferes with the body’s natural secretion of androgen (“the male hormone”). Androgen can overstimulate the oil glands in your skin, which creates the perfect environment for bacteria to grow and cause pimples, blackheads, and lesions. Developing acne is more likely if you have acne problems prior to Mirena, but there have been several cases reported from women who have never had acne issues.
Your hormones don’t just affect the physical body. They are also connected to your emotional state. When your hormones are off-balance, you could feel its effects in different ways. Mirena has been shown to induce mood swings, anxiety, low libido, and even depression.
How Can I Cure My Side Effects from Mirena?
First, you should consider removing the Mirena IUD. You will have to schedule an appointment with your doctor to have it taken out. (Take note that all symptoms will not automatically cease upon removal.)
Next, you should begin re-balancing your hormones. The Mirena Detox Program can show you how. Its inexpensive methods have been scientifically proven to work. Using natural, holistic techniques, the Mirena Detox show you how to adjust your diet with special food and supplements and help you eliminate toxins from Mirena from your body.
Please be aware: The detox process takes total commitment. Cleansing your body from Mirena is not a quick process. Although it takes little time to insert your Mirena, it could take up to six months to completely detox your body from it effects. However, women have reported feeling better within 40 days.
