Using mirena (levonorgestrel). Noticed no period in 45 days, bad acne. Low sex drive, & agitation, some loss of hair. Should i see my doctor or is this normal?
Check with Doctor: I have seen many patients that develop acne after starting with mirena (levonorgestrel). It can be caused by a flux in hormones that occurs with mirena (levonorgestrel). Hormone related acne can be treated with anti-androgenic medications like spironolactone. The other side effects can be associated with mirena (levonorgestrel), but as with any new medication, if you are experiencing adverse side effects, it is best to contact your prescribing dr. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Most women require clitoral stimulation. ...Read more

Lots of things: Its hard to say whether all of these symptoms are related. If u r currently on ocps they can cause the brown discharge / break through bleeding and sometimes pain during intercourse. I think a pelvic us would be very helpful. Could be an ovarian cyst, or endometriosis causing pain with intercourse and irreg bleeding. Low sex drive may be due to some hormone imbalance (but ocps can cause it !). ...Read more
