Mirena IUD and Thyroid Problems

I am new to this board having recently been diagnosed with Post Partum Thyroiditis and Hashi's. I have been doing some research and found some links between a Mirena IUD which I have and thyroid symtoms and problems. Has anyone else found a connection? Does having it removed resolve the symptoms?

Thank you all in advance I am so glad I found this board.

Re: Mirena IUD and Thyroid Problems

I have one, but I had symptoms before getting it. I am hoping to get rid of it soon, just to see if anything gets better.

Re: Mirena IUD and Thyroid Problems

I was having issues with my teeth and my dentist recommended I not be on ANY type of birth control because the hormones aggravate my issues. I had also gone for a full work up and it had been about 6 months on Mirena at that point. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's and decided to remove the Mirena because of my dental issues. I have had completely normal thyroid tests since I removed the Mirena a year and a half ago and the symptoms went away. I kept asking all of my doctors if it was possible that the Mirena caused the thyroid issues and no one could give me an answer. I hope this helps!
