Re: Mirena IUD Side Effects

I had my Mirena removed 4 weeks ago after nearly 5 years. Looking back I never realised how bad the side effects really were and just carried on. The first year I had severe mood swings, depression, ( my partner and I broke up 4 weeks after I had it inserted but got back together again 6 weeks later) total loss of sex drive, weight gain but the very worst thing for me was the effect it had on my skin. Huge hormone boils would erupt for weeks on end all over my chin - I just thought it was hormone changes associated with age - even though I was then 40! Consequently I was put on a low dose Antibiotic to 'clear' my skin which I have been on ever since. This did eventually help but it has been the last year since the hormone has been wearing off the iud that I have noticed an improvement in my Acne and the sex drive. The only good thing was no periods and no pregnancy but I will never have another one again and am now going back to a normal I.U.D - once my poor body has settled down from 5 years of chemical shock.
