Re: About to fo on IUD BC w/ Addison's, Any thoughts?
I used Mirena IUD for 4 years, had it removed about 2 years ago to get pregnant, and went back on it again 5 months after baby. Loved it then, love it now, no problems at all Addison's or otherwise. The time-released progestrone component of the Mirena is not systemic, only local, so there is little chance of weird hormone side effects. And if you use it and decide to have it removed for another pregnancy, your fertility should return relatively quickly compared to other forms of hormonal birth control.
