Mirena Acne

Hi everyone.
I've had mirena in since march and I've loved it. I used to pass out every time I had a period and I haven't had one since. Even though I still get cramps they are worth it to not have a period! My question many of you guys have experienced acne with it? I've always had good skin until lately. I've been breaking out on my face and was prescribed differin. It's been keeping my face a little better but I still get acne. I just looked in the mirror and it's all over my back and I've never in my life had back acne. This is actually my only problem with it and so it's just a vanity thing but it would still be nice to know if I'm the only one with it. My other thought is, I'm getting married next month so maybe it could be caused by stress? Thanks in advance for any replys!!

Re: Mirena Acne

i have had problems with acne since having mirena inserted. mostly on my face and neck, and only around the time of my period.

i do think that the stress is probably causing it too. i know weddings are stressful, but you're getting married! it's going to be a lot of fun! relax and enjoy it. congrats.
