Take more time with each other, more romance. Good luck! ...Read more

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?

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 more
