Can mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD strings cause infections? An ovarian cyst formed for me and the mirena (levonorgestrel) string is caught in it! help!

Not really: Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud strings do not cause infection, nor have anything to do with an ovarian cyst. The ovary will creat a so called cyst for the ovulation process.

The Mirena (levonorgestrel) can be in for 5 years. It is also possible that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) has come out make sure yours is still in by checking for the strings. And if you can feel the strings go into the doctor and have them look for the strings. ...Read more
