Experience

Horrific experience – I went to the ER to have it removed due to the debilitating migraines and loss of feeling on one side of my body. I also had horrific back pain, my first panic attack, heart palpitations, and vision loss in one eye. Please make sure you know fully about the risks and be aware of the lawsuits currently happening around this product (causing Intercranial hypertension and pseudotumor in the brain).

Experience after taking

The most horrible experience of my entire life. True IUD left my body in a hormonal nightmare- hot flashes, panic attacks, SEVERE insomnia, tingling (loss of feeling) in right side of my body, nausea, daily all-day migraines, heart palpitations etc. Look up mirena crash. I am 6 months out and am still only now recovering from the havoc it caused.
