Mirena and PCOS

Hello fellow posters,

I was just curious if anyone out there has had a diagnosis of PCOS following an insertion of the Mirena IUD device? My diagnosis of PCOS followed an awful experience with the Mirena, so I was curious of how common this might be?

Thanks, everyone!

Re: Mirena and PCOS


I'm glad to have found this post. I had the Mirena put in about 6 months ago. Prior to that I had no signs of PCOS. After having the Mirena put in I have developed PCOS. The Mirena has also caused a small amount of cervical erosion in which causes me to bleed lightly during sex. Other side effects I have been experiencing is constant spotting (at least 4 days + per week), bad cramping and I cannot lose any weight no matter how hard I try. I have gained 5kgs since having it in. I'm starting to question if it is worth even having the Mirena anymore but then I don't know if I could handle experiencing extremely painful periods again. I have considered tubal ligation but I want to have children in the future. I just don't know what to do .

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Question Re: Mirena and PCOS

I got Mirena after having my son in 2009. I had it removed August 3, 2012 so my husband and I could expand our family. I never got my cycle so I had to be put on progesterone for 4-6 weeks. I got diagnosed with PCOS on November 30, 2012. Had my first cycle on December 4, 2012 (lasted 3 days). My Dr. put me on Sprintec (birth control) to regulate my cycles. I still haven't had a cycle since December. Before having my son/mirena, I didn't have any problems. My cycles were like clockwork. I knew exactly when they were going to start every month. Now I don't know if I will ever have a cycle. Any help would be great.
