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. Iud's do not cause infection, but sexual behavior can put you at risk for infection regardless of the prescence of iud. ...Read more

I it possible that the nuvaring will help me with my ovarian cysts? As opposed to the IUD which I just took out....?
Yes, it should: The iud just keeps the egg from being fertilized by incapacitating the sperm in the uterus. It has no effect on the ovary. Nuvaring, like the pill, the patch, the shot and the implant all keep you from ovulating by stopping the development of the follicle (cyst) that contains and releases the egg. ...Read more
Intense Ovarian cyst cramps at night on two birth controls already (iud and lo estrin) is this normal?
Pelvic pain: While you may hurt in the area where ovaries lie, it is extremely rare to have cramps or pain from ovaries unless you have a very large cyst or are ovulating which your birth control pill would prevent. I would recommend being evaluated for another source of pain such as uterine cramping, intestinal cramps, musculoskeletal pain. Also, make sure you are drinking 2liters of water per day ...Read more

I: I am very concerned about several things here. That is way too much Ibuprofen (advil and Motrin are other words for ibuprofen). Taking 800 mg every 6 hours for a few days is a lot, but taking 800 mg every two hours is very concerning, and can cause side effects with your stomach and your kidneys. You need to be immediately evaluated for this pain and irregular bleeding. It is not normal. Sometimes these symptoms can occur in the first few months after a mirena, (levonorgestrel) but you state you are 25 months out, so these symptoms are very abnormal. Please have a complete gynecological evaluation. You likely need an imaging study such as an ultrasound. There are other pain medications that you can be treated with. Please be seen immediately for your symptoms. ...Read more

What would cause a heavy period like flow after removal of Mirena IUD? Was under the understanding that it kept lining thin.
Age 60 & heavy flow: If indeed you are 60 years of age. Removing the Mirena IUD was sorely needed. Moreover, heavy bleeding post Mirena at any age raises the question of abnormal endometrial proliferation. It would be a good idea for your GYN MD to take an endometrial sampling (biopsy) to rule out endometrial hyperplasia which can lead to endometrial/uterine cancer. ...Read more
