Can The Mirena Coil Give You Sciatica
I haven't had a period in 4 years since Mirena (levonorgestrel). The past 3 days I've had pink slimy discharged with weird smell, low back pain 2 days. Pregnant mayb?
I guess possible BUT: When women talk about WEIRD SMELLS with back pain...I interpret what they're telling me as "pretty bad" smells and back pain.....with a SLIMY discharge? That's got UTI written all over it for me until proven otherwise before pregnancy. Nevertheless, it never hurts to check with a pregnancy test if there's any possibility that's right.

Dull aches in my right ovary area "Mirena" IUD inserted with a history of cysts. Lately I have had a lot of low back pain. Possible ovarian cancer?
Symptoms: headaches, nausea, low back pain, stomach upset, groin pain. Could this be because I went from mirena (levonorgestrel) to lo loestrin fe in a months time?
No: Those are not side effects of changing from an IUD to birth control pills. I would schedule a visit to have these diverse group of symptoms evaluated. ...Read more

If more concern a follow up appointment with your primary care would be indicated. ...Read more

Depends: Depends on when it expired. It is good for 5 years. Has it been 5 years or 8 years. Depends on the age of the recipient. At 47, the possibility of pregnancy is low. The major risk of not changing the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is pregnancy. Of course, there is a higher risk of ectopic with IUDs. ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) coil removed. Cycles since 28, 32, 31 days. Currently still waiting for afthis month and I'm on day 36. Tests are negative. What's going on?
Late period: Not 100% I understand your question. It sounds like you are saying you had 3 approximately 30 days cycles after iud removal and now this one is about a week late. If your pregnancy test is negative then this is just a late cycle which is very common. Most women will go back to normal quickly. The next step depends on your goals. Cycle regulation vs conception. Track cycles over next few months. ...Read more
Talk to them: If your doctor is suggesting the mirena, (levonorgestrel) you should discuss the risks and benefits with them. There is usually a good reason why a doctor recommends medical treatment. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) has many benefits, decreased menstrual bleeding, decreased risk of endometrial cancer, decreased pain with periods, effective contraception, etc. ...Read more
Not usually: Usually there may be some cramping after placement & with menstruation, but not 'severe' pain. If this was recently placed or has grown worse over time, it's possible the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD has migrated and/or perforated the uterus. I would suggest consulting your gynecologist ASAP. ...Read more
No: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud releases Progesterone locally in the uterine cavity and is fda approved for contraception (up to 5 years) and for reducing heavy menstrual flow. The classic symptoms of menopause (hot flushes, night sweats, vag dryness, sleeplessness) would not be prevented by the mirena (levonorgestrel). ...Read more
I had the Mirena coil fitted 10 days ago and last night noticed some orange spotting... is this normal? I bled for 7 days after getting Mirena
Adjustment changes: Most likely, the uterus/body is making minor adjustments related to the IUD. The Prostaglandins (pain mediators) associated with semen also add to any discomfort sometimes. If you are comfortable feeling for the IUD strings, you should do that to confirm continued proper placement of the IUD. Otherwise, especially if the symptoms are persistent, get with your OB/GYN to confirm placement. ...Read more
Hi I was told today I have a tilted cervix when my nurse was looking for the strings from mirena coil she could not find them what dose that mean?
Nothing: A 'tilted' uterus us normal. Like saying your left handed. 30 percent of women have uteruses that tilt 'backwards'. Experience helps s practitioner work with uteruses in different positions. Now if your string is up in your cervix, it might be that no one could find the string. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2011, had the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted in 2012 and for the first six months things were brilliant but now for the past?
Mirena (levonorgestrel) cant helpendo: Endometriosis on the pelvic surfaces typically causes pain in the time prior to and partly into the menstrual flow. Endometriosis that is in the muscle of the uterus (also called adenomyosis) causes pain during menstruation as well as heavy bleeding. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud will only help with the adenomyosis near the iud and not the endometriosis farther away. ...Read more
Unlikely: Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud has a tail that you will not see which your doctor will use someday to remove. It does not have coils like the essure system. Iud's can cause cramping and discomfort, but very rare with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. You should see your doctor for an exam with possible ultrasound to see if it is indeed in the appropriate place. ...Read more

Most likely: While the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is in it causes the periods to be much lighter than what is normal for you. Once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed then the periods will go back to whatever is your normal. Also in your late 40's it is common to have heavy and irregular periods as you get closer to menopause. Many women will use Mirena (levonorgestrel) at that age just to get the periods to be lighter. ...Read more

I took my mirena (levonorgestrel) coil out myself. Now I'm trying for a baby but I have a strange smell?
I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) but would the maca root would give me any type of effects with the iud?
No: The iud is designed to work on the uterus, and the hormones in the Mirena (levonorgestrel) aren't absorbed. While I do not think that the maca root will have any effect on your iud, you should disucss this with your doctor to make sure it doesn't interfere with any other medications or medical problems you may have. ...Read more

Dr cant find my mirena (levonorgestrel) coil, referred me for ultrasound but will be least 2 weeks, is this dangerous it being left inside that long? Quite worried.
Probably fine.: Most likely the IUD is in the uterus and your doctor just cannot see the string. This is not dangerous. If the IUD has fallen out then the only risk you have would be pregnancy. Consider a condom until you are sure. If the IUD is in your belly then it can be removed with a minor surgery - this is not likely. Hope this helps. ...Read more
I was told today, after a scan, that the tiny tip of one side of my mirena (levonorgestrel) coil, looked like it had pierced my endomitrium. Is this dangerous to me?
Probably not: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud itself is placed within the endometrium so it is not unusual to see the tip of it in the endometrium what can be difficult is if the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is embedded in the muscle layer of the uterus, the myometrium. Then the iud was placed into the uterus too far and may be difficult to remove. ...Read more
