Do antibiotics affect birth control, specifically IUDs? I'm on Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and have a Mirena IUD.

Do antibiotics affect birth control, specifically IUDs? I'm on Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and have a Mirena IUD.

Not to worry: All IUDs prevent pregnancy, and antibiotics don't interfere with them. Mirena (levonorgestrel) combines the usual action of an IUD with the hormonal effects of the progesterone-type drug included with it. A few antibiotics can affect the hormone's effectiveness, but most won't, including ciprofloxacin. ...Read more

19 yr old, 5.5mos post partum. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. Diagnosed with cervicitis, neg. Std tests. Other possible causes?

May be your Mirena (levonorgestrel): One the more common side effects associated with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud is cervicitis (inflammation of the cervix). Otherwise, the most common causes of cervicitis are related to infection (std or overgrowth or imbalance of normal vaginal flora), chemical irritation (spermicidal, latex conforms, lubricant, douching), and local trauma. Sometimes the cause is not clear. ...Read more

Current DVT on warfarin, bv, lgil, pcos managed by metformin and diet/exercise. Stopped Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) after dvt, pelvic pain. Any relationship between all these?

Current DVT on warfarin, bv, lgil, pcos managed by metformin and diet/exercise. Stopped Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) after dvt, pelvic pain. Any relationship between all these?

Insulin resistance.: The Insulin resistance syndrome (ir) is the underlying cause of pcos. This is due to down-regulation of sex hormone binding globulin. Ir also causes up-regulation of several clotting factors, like fibrinogen and pai-1, the inhibitor of tpa (alteplase). Stay on the metformin, get regular exercise and follow a low glycemic index diet. ...Read more

DX PID in Er. Had US and Pap. Pap normal, negative for std/sti. Confused about other possible causes, or was this incorrect dx? No hx endometriosis

DX PID in Er. Had US and Pap. Pap normal, negative for std/sti. Confused about other possible causes, or was this incorrect dx? No hx endometriosis

Possibly Wrong DX: I find that ERs over diagnose women who present with pelvic pain and/or vaginal discharge with PID. It would help to have more information, including symptoms you had. I assume they Rxd antibiotics , and your US was normal. They likely tested you for GC/Chlamydia, which are the most common causes of PID, but not the only pathogens that can cause it. If no better see gyn specialist. Take Care. ...Read more

My wife dr installed mirena (levonorgestrel) to prevent uterine cancer. We do not believe in abortion but are ok with birth control. Does mirena (levonorgestrel) cause abortions?

My wife dr installed mirena (levonorgestrel) to prevent uterine cancer.  We do not believe in abortion but are ok with birth control.  Does mirena (levonorgestrel) cause abortions?

Probably: One mechanism of action for the Mirena (levonorgestrel) (and there are several) is the thinning of the endometrium. That makes the lining of the uterus less receptive to implantation of a fertilized egg. When a conception does occur, most of the time that fertilized egg will not implant and the pregnancy will not be established - this results in the Mirena (levonorgestrel) being an abortifacient at least part of the time. ...Read more
