Hi Ladies- I thought you would be interested in this article from the high impact journal- Human Reproductive Health. It is called The effect of a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system on uterine artery blood flow, hormone concentrations and ovarian cyst formation in fertile women. You can google the article to get the abstract but in summary they have shown that there is a significant reduction in systemic progesterone for women using the IUD in the second half of the cycle (but oestrogen still increased to normal levels. Many of you have already speculated that your symptoms may be due to low progesterone (leading to relative oestrogen dominace). This made me feel a bit better- knowing there is true scientific proof that the Mirena messes with your systemic hormones! A good article to point your GP to as well.
I recently got out of the hospital, was there for 3 weeks, ICU for about 10 days. It is almost 2ms since all of this happened. Had seizures in the middle of the night, first time in my life. I had about 100+ in total, almost died. I am a healthy 37 yr old woman. Have 2 beautiful boys and an amazing husband. Decided to google this page because ironically had my IUD taken out that day. Drs said no connection but it doesnt make sense. I am on 4 different seizure medicines and heavy doses. There was a swelling in my brain and hopefully, I think it is going down. But cant drive for 6ms and realize the important things in life. My friend that night was obsessed that there was a connection, now what?
