I had mirena (levonorgestrel) removed in december after a year. Can this ccause shorter luteal phase? Progesterone issues? How long should I give myself to adjust?
If the progesterone only pill didn't agree with me, (I always got irregular bleeding for a year) should the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil cause the same problem?
Having side effects from mirena (levonorgestrel).I have lots of cysts growing on my ovary.Ob wants to use implanon can I use a 20mg topical progesterone instead?
Possibility of mirena being defective ? releasing too much progesterone? On 3rd (1st fully expelled, 2nd partially expelled) no s/e on the 1st two - now severe pain (Admitted to hospital) post insertion which continues 2.5 weeks & nipple sensitivity
There are really: 2 issues here. While I can't say for sure if it's releasing levonorgestrel too quickly, I can say that your uterus doesn't like having it there. There are a couple of contraceptives that are very effective but aren't inserted into the uterus: Deep-provera shots given every 3 months; implanted devices like Implanon and Nexplanon are 3 that come to mind.

I took progesterone pills and they gave me horrible uterine cramping and pain. My doctor wants to give me the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD. Won't it do the same thing?
When i got the Depo-Provera shot, i had a period/spotting for almost 2 months. Is it likely i'll have the same problem with mirena (levonorgestrel)? (both progesterone based)
Depends: Many women start Depo-Provera or Mirena (levonorgestrel) at the wrong part of their cycle, often right before the start of their period. Since a drop in your Progesterone usually triggers the period, starting Progesterone at this time creates an imbalance which results in prolonged bleeding. Make sure to get the Mirena (levonorgestrel) right after your period ends, or ask about adding estrogen for a short time if bleeding persists. ...Read more

I still have heavy flooding periods each month . Had new mireana fitted and doc recommend taking progesterone as well, why is this?
Is workup complete?: In a 52 year old with heavy periods that are poorly controlled, a review of the workup should reveal: 1. A well documented history of the bleeding 2. A well documented exam of the uterus 3. An ultrasound 4. Labs, including CBC and tsh 5. Definitely an endometrial biopsy 6. Possibly a sonohysterogram to rule out polyps if this is all normal, and nothing is working, consider an ablation. ...Read more
