Experience

After first 6 months I developed weird bumps on my arms which after biopsy turned out to be sarcoidosis an autoimmune disease. For over a year my periods were lighter but lasted for nearly 2 weeks each time. I also developed horrible migraines that’s why I got it removed after having it for over 2 years.

Experience after taking

My periods returned to normal. I only got it removed two months ago. I suffer from anxiety and after removal of mirena I feel less anxious. I m hoping for sarcoids on my arms to maybe disappear? I was fine better mirena I not developed this autoimmune disease after insert of mirena.
