Hormone Imbalance After Mirena Removal
Yes: If a woman has much acne, it is likely to be due to extra androgens, especially if her periods are not quite normal; this is very common and your family physician or gynecologist has already considered it.

Do you think I have a hormone imbalance I've always had acne but it's become worse and now it's on my back face, neck, been to dermatologist B 4.???
Just manage it: If your monthly cycle is normal, you will not find a treatable underlying cause for your acne. If I understand your history, you are using doxycycline as sole therapy for acne. You need to add a topical agent such as benzoyl peroxide. You may also benefit from a medicine like spironolactone, and various forms of the oral contraceptive pill can work as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

And if the mirena (levonorgestrel) did fall out what would I expect? And how long for the hormones to come out of my system?
Unusual: It's more common with combination hormones, especially with the higher dose pills, and of course in pregnancy. I've not seen it with Mirena (levonorgestrel) since the amount of systemic hormone (amount in your body's circulation) is very small. Make sure you're not pregnant and check with your Doc if you notice more darkening pigmentation. Take care. ...Read more

More worrisome, if fertilization and implantation occurs, the risk of an ectopic pregnancy is high. And, if a normal uterine pregnancy occurs, the iud will need to be removed and it is highly likely to cause an abortion. ...Read more
