Mirena decreased my quality of life
| monica-f
I could write pages on the horror story I have been living over the last 4 years but I will simply list the multiple complications I developed. Some I knew were a result of the Mirena, some I was only able to contribute after reading and researching.
Had Mirena almost 4 years and went to my FNP on 3 separate occasions to ask for it to be removed only for her to convince me that my symptoms were not result of the Mirena.
Insertion went well, menstrual cycle stopped. Over the course of the 4 years;
Developed perioral dermatitis (acne around my mouth and chin)
Lost a LOT of hair. Gained 25 pounds despite healthy eating and active lifestyle. Developed weakness in arms, numbness in hands and back pain. Saw a neurologist and had MRI. Could not find anything wrong. At the time I never thought it could be the MIrena. Also started having heart palpations, dizziness, anxiety attacks, constipation. Saw a Cardiologist and had a stress test and ECHO. Both were normal, again at the time did not contribute this to the Mirena. All that was within the first 2 years and continued. Over the last 2 years I have had headaches, depression, mood swings, SEVERE anxiety attacks that had me convinced I was going to die. Fatigue, loss of libido, painful intercourse and bloating. I had a mild case of TMJ prior to Mirena and also had some mild occasional degenerative type knee pain. Both are extremely worse and I now have hip joint pain as well. Looking back over the last 4 years and all the complications I have had, it is no coincidence. I was a healthy person with no medical history until I had the Mirena placed. I don't know how long it will take but I PRAY I will feel like my normal self again soon.

Wasn't for me.
| Paula Mitchell
Losing my hair, handfuls in shower. Didn't help with leakage or frequency.

I have Polymyalgia (10 months ) and now down to 5mgs of Prednisolone steroid believing it was the steroid for my thinning (once thick shining hair). I now realise it's the condition Polymyalgia for the thinning hair. Would dearly love to know how I can help return my hair to its thick glossy state.

Mono-Linyah to Levonor-eth Estrad-- Will my hair loss stop?
| Spen
I'm 21, female, Diagnosed with PCOS at about 18. I started taking birth control in the form of Mono-Linyah, generic for Ortho-cyclen (Norgestimate at 0.25 mg) and around that time I started losing hair. 300 hairs+ a day, and to this day. It's not Androgenic alopecia or hereditary; It's telogen effluvium style hair loss all over, not one spot or spots. I just discovered that different progestin's can cause hair loss, so Planned Parenthood switched me over to Levenor-eth Estrad, generic for Levlen (Levonorogestrel at 0.15) Will taking this new birth control pill make my hair loss worse, or stop it and let me hair grow normally? Other meds have been ruled out, and 3 months of prenatal vites and iron hasn't helped...

| dgriff
I have been loosing so much hair and i believe its because i am on myrbetriq 50 mg. is anyone else experiencing hair loss? I loose alot in the showe and when i brush my hair. This medication has helped me so much i dont feel the pressure on my bladder anymore. but maybe its time to figure out whats causing this and not just treating the symptoms.

I lost my hair taking Protonix
| StaceyAZ
I was taking Protonix for GERD and started to lose my hair rapidly, I never changed my shampoo nor anything else. I started getting confused and mumbling to myself. I was extremely frustrated on this medication because it seemed like I couldn't stop cleaning, that I needed to always be doing something. I started to get achne on my face, I had more pain in my stomach then ever before. I took for 2 weeks and got sick of losing my hair, it would come out in globs and I don't have hair issues. My stomach was always on fire and pain after taking this and yes I took in the morning after breakfast. I was more miserable on the medication then off. I am a female I need my hair!
