I appreciate your view, but at some point you really have to take into account the overwhelming reports I have found just like everyone here, including myself.
I have the Mirena IUD for 2-3 years now, after a trip to the emergency room they finally found the culprit ovarian cysts. I have had 2-4 mm/cm (whatever the normal range of measurement is for these things show up on sonograms and CT scans for now 5 of 5 months, always in different areas and on different ovaries. I was in so much pain the day I went to the hospital I thought I had a kidney stone.
Now 2 months ago I get the news "abnormal cells" shown in pap smear. Then I have the colposcopsy done and not just minor abnormal cells, but moderate to severe. Bear in mind this is the first time EVER I have had an abnormal pap and I always have my annual pap since I was 16 (now 32).
I'm not a scientist/doctor but never did I have these problems with my previous IUD (Nova-T) and it's been one thing or another with this Mirena IUD. I didn't realize until they had placed the Mirena IUD that it did not work in the same way my previous (Nove-T) but had not only horomones but synthetic horomones. I committed to giving it a try. From the minute I found out about the Ovarian Cysts I have asked my GYN if the iud was causing this. I got the same "oh, no, no, no". I am having LEEP done in 5 days and I am scared to death. I don't care with is said you know your body, and mine is telling me that there is something in the way the horomone is realeased, areas of absorbtion, there is definetly something going on here. Too many people with the same issue and Mirena. I URGE YOU PLEASE REPORT YOUR REACTIONS TO FDA, I have posted the link below;
I have reported mine issues becasue from day oe I thought it had something to do with the Mirena IUD.
I wish you all the best of luck with long happy healthy lives without Mirena.
