Experience

I’m so happy to finally have my Mirena out! I gained weight.. not sure when I’ll be able to loose it.. it’s been almost a month since I’ve had it taken it out. I also had horrible acne as a side effect… to be fair I am very prone to acne even though my skin was clear when I had it inserted. I also had vaginal dryness for sure. I noticed my depression was much worse as well. I’m praying everything goes back to normal soon. I would love an input as to what I should be doing to help or if the Mirena detox is real?

Experience after taking

I would love to know how long it might take for my body to go back to normal. I gained weight and my skin was horrible with Mirena. I got it taken out about 3 weeks ago.
