Withdrawal effect?: It's quite possible your symptoms are a result of hormonal changes due to Mirena (levonorgestrel) withdrawal. Having said that, it's very important that you first consult your gynecologist to make sure there are no other reasons for your symptoms. The following site may be helpful http://bit.ly/1vlj5cr Be cautious about purchasing any "Mirena (levonorgestrel) Detox" guides. If they really wanted to help you they wouldn't charge!!

If due to Mirena discontinuation hopefully the symptoms will be temporary.
