“Women Must Know That Mirena Causes Miscarriages”

. By
Lansing, MIOn her doctor’s advice, Carolle had a Mirena IUD for birth control implanted in 2006. “He said it was my best option, but he didn’t mention any Mirena side effects,” she says. “I think the Mirena sales representatives sold him a bill of goods.” And that “bill of goods” transfers to the patient. Sadly, Carolle didn’t know about Bayer Mirena warnings until she had a miscarriage.

“My doctor said that Mirena was safer than Yasmin and Yaz and other birth control pills so he did give me options,” says Carolle, “but what is the lesser of two evils?”

Carolle had the Mirena implanted for five years without incident. In 2011, it was time to get a new one: her doctor said that the IUD device has a five-year life span so another two years went by with the second Mirena. Carolle already had two children and she wasn’t in a hurry to have another.

“After seven years, it got to the point that I didn’t feel like myself, because you don’t have a period with the IUD so I had it taken out,” Carolle explains. “I got pregnant just two months later, but about eight weeks into my pregnancy I started bleeding really badly - it was horrible.”

Carolle called her doctor; he said it sounded like a miscarriage and there wasn’t much they could do, but if the bleeding or pain got really bad to come into the office. “One day it got so bad that I wound up in the hospital and saw the on-call doctor,” Carolle says. “She did a pelvic exam and the first thing she said was, ‘Oh my.’ You don’t want to hear a doctor say that. ‘Something is wrong, this doesn’t look normal - I am pretty sure you have lost the baby,’ she said. I went home, devastated. I had an ultrasound a few days later and that determined that indeed I had lost the baby. That is when I began to research Mirena miscarriages.”

Back at her doctor’s office, Carolle says he was still in denial about the Mirena. “I told him about the conversation I had with the hospital doctor,” Carolle says. “Even though her bedside manner was lacking, I think her honesty worked in my favor. She was really surprised by what she saw and scared me when she said ‘that doesn’t look normal,’ but she only wrote on my medical chart that I had a lot of scar tissue. I believe there is only one explanation for that.

“I had two healthy babies before getting this Mirena IUD and I had never miscarried before. I am not trying to get pregnant now but at the same time I don’t want to go on any birth control, especially an IUD. I believe it screws up your body.”

Carolle says she would like to have another child but she worries that a miscarriage could happen again. She was surprised, however, that the Mirena was in the right place when she had it removed - many women have suffered uterine perforations and other serious side effects when the Mirena has migrated.

“I really thought it might have shifted and caused some permanent damage,” Carolle adds. “Doctors push the IUD and say there is no risk but that is so wrong, there are huge risks. Nobody would get an IUD if the Mirena warning adds, ‘May cause miscarriage’ or ‘You won’t be able to have children.’

“I am glad of the opportunity to get my voice heard and I hope I can do something - at least warn other women of Mirena and get involved in a Mirena lawsuit. Perhaps collectively we can compete with the drug company because they need to know their product can cause miscarriages.”

I had my Mirena removed on July 13, 2017. I bled for nine days after. On August 10, I got a BFP - actually five of them on the HPT. However I miscarried, and am currently still in the process of miscarrying, as of August 13. Not until I researched the Mirena's link to miscarriage did I realize that it is so damaging to the lining of the uterus. I will not be getting another Mirena, or any other IUD, because I am not done having children, and don't want to damage my uterus any more than it has been damaged.

I wish that I read all your comment before getting the mirena. I remember asking my gynecologist whether getting the iud would cause increased risk of miscarriages or growth of cancers as I was previously diagnosed with cervical cancer and had to have a cone biopsy. I also asked about how the iud worked and was told that it causes sperm to die and no egg to be released. Didn't sound to bad. After a year I found out another way in which the device worked. It this the uterine wall just in case a egg gets released and a sperm makes it there alive, the fertilized egg will not be able to stick to the uterine wall causing you to abort the baby!! How is it that no one tells you that you are going to become a murderer when you get this device. It is also for this reason that I had a miscarriage about 5 months after removing the Mirena. Your womb can not maintain the pregnancy because the uterine wall is way to thin. Now 2 months further we are pregnant again and so far my hormones are in disarray. My first two pregnancy's was awesome. I was happy all the time(even though we really did not have a lot of money), felt like nothing could upset me. No morning sickness, beautiful skin and the worst problem was a little bit of heartburn during the last 2 months. This time it is awful!! I am so agitated that my poor husband are struggling to keep house with me, I get upset over the smallest thing. At times I feel so nauseous and don't want to eat anything then just like that I have the weirdest cravings. My skin are awful, I have bad heartburn and go to the toilet every 15min just to make sure there is no bleeding. The Mirena threw my whole hormonal balance out of wack and I am just hoping that the rest of my pregnancy will not be as bad as the first 8 weeks. Please help to inform everyone you know about the abortion affect that the Mirena has as the medical dr's are definitely not going to inform anyone!! I also have a long family history with cancer and thanks to this device and previous contraceptive tablets, I now stand an even higher chance of getting cancer at a young age. Good luck to all of you struggling out there and going through this awful ordeal. It does get better after a wile and the pain will subside, just be strong for now and confine in as many people as you can.

Hi I am Sabrina. I had a son in February 2012, a few months later I got on the mirena. I had it for almost 5 years, with plenty of difficulty in my stomach, back, knees etc. I got it taken out in August 2015 and got pregnant in February 2016. We were so excited, didn't tell anyone until 12 weeks, no issues other than morning sickness. I was 13 weeks and 6 days. May 22,2016. We were driving from NY to Florida. I was cramping the day before and the same day it got worse. We continued to stop, I was in pain crying. Got back in the car to my water breaking. I knew something was wrong because in the next few minutes I had a handful of blood on my seat, we stopped at the hospital in SC name Colleton. They checked the baby, baby was too small thinking baby died a week or two before this incident. But they had to perform a DNC and I was devistated. I always knew mirena was giving me issues, bit I really hope that it's not the reason I'm going through this. All I do is cry, just want to know what happened. I am scared to try again because I don't wanna go through all the emotions if it happens again. Thanks for listening.

My name is Carmen, I am 38. I had the Mirena put in 2010 and had it removed October 2015 after I got married in September. I have had 3 normal healthy pregnancies up until I had the Mirena put in. My youngest is 15 years old so it had been awhile since I have been pregnant. I didn't get my first "normal" period until December 15, 2015 and once that happened we were able to conceive. My husband does not have any children of his own so we were both very excited. Positive pregnancy test in January and I scheduled our first visit with my OB for what would have been my 9th week of pregnancy. We got an ultrasound and the technician could not get me out of her room fast enough. I knew something was wrong. I was in fact 9 weeks pregnant but the baby stopped growing measuring 7 1/2 weeks and there was no heartbeat. I was devastated so was my husband. I had to have a D&C done since I wasn't miscarrying on my own. Which was emotionally horrible. Had to have that done on a Friday and Monday morning still wasn't feeling right called the OB went in to do another ultrasound and they hadn't gotten all the "tissue" out so I was given pills to miscarry on my own. This who process has been emotionally and physically horrible. I asked my OB when could we try again and she said to give my body 2 months of "normal" cycles. Reading all of this makes me very nervous to try again since I just keep reading miscarriage after miscarriage. Is there anyone that has actually been able to conceive after?

Since having the mirena removed 1 year ago Ive had 2 miscarriages. Before the mirena I had 2 healthy baby boys. While on the mirena for 3 years my hair fell out by the hand full, I was emotionally unstable, lost weight, no appetite, numorous vag infections and no period the entire time. I am certain the miscarriages are caused by previously having the mirena. I strongly recommend to woman to use any birth control but mirena.

Hi all. I'm 30 years old and have one child, a boy who just turned 3. I had the Mirena IUD put in in March of 2013, about a month after my son was born. It stayed in until October of 2014, when my husband and I wanted to start trying for a second baby. I got pregnant in February 2015, went to my 6 week checkup and everything looked good! Strong heartbeat, baby was measuring properly and everything. We were so excited! Anyways, time comes for my 12 week scan and my husband wasn't able to come because of work, so I just went by myself thinking nothing of it. Anyways, I was told that the baby had no heartbeat and had indeed died about 2 weeks prior with my knowing it. I was so devastated! Since I had a missed miscarriage they recommended I have a D&C, which I did. The entire thing just crippled me. I was in such a state of grief for most of 2015, but towards the end of the year I got a positive pregnancy test! I went into the doc in November and they confirmed that I was pregnant and set up my appointment for my 6-7 week exam. A couple of days later, I started bleeding. It was slow at first but then got really heavy. It was on a weekend so I called the on-call OB at the ER and she said to sit tight until Monday, because there wasn't much she could do anyways. So, Monday I got into my regular OB and they indeed confirmed there was no baby. I was bleeding very heavily at that point, so I knew I had lost the baby, at about 5 weeks. I'm just so demoralized by the two losses. Now, I'm thinking maybe the Mirena had something to do with it. I had no issues carrying my son. Everything was fine. Also after I had my Mirena out, my primary doctor found some uterine cysts after I went in complaining of gastrointestinal pain. I don't know what to do. We're trying again but I'm so set on it ending in a loss again. This stinks. We only want one more baby!

I had been swearing by the IUD, at least the Paraguard, I think that's the one I've used. I had mine on for about 10-11yrs. No issues. I Loved it. I had it removed when the time was up and immediately had another one placed in. This time , I had a just a little more cramping and a little more bleeding but not a real issue.
3 yrs into the new one, my boyfriend and I decided to start trying to conceive. I got pregnant about 8-10months later. HAd a miscarriage. about 8 mo.ater I have another miscarriage. And now over a yr later , another. We were so sure that this time weas different. It was not possible that it was going to happen again , it just could be our luck, but it was.
A co-worker menation birthcontrol andhow she strongly believes that they can cause infertility issues.
that's when I decided to research and I have ran into this page.
All this time I have been attributing it to the fact that , it's just nature there just may really not be a reason for my miscarriages, or maybe because both my boyfriend ( fiancé, as he just proposed on January 20th , on my birthday, on the day we found out the baby no longer had a heart beat :'( ), are well over weight and not as healthy as we should be for our height especially because I already have heart conditions or maybe because of my age as I am over 40 . The more I read your postings the more I wonder if it may also have something to do with the IUD. Except that many of you are mentioning the Mirena , I believe I had the Paraguard .
My heart HURTS, it hurts for me and it hurts for ALL women and families going through just painful experience. (((HUGS and KISSES))) to ALL.

My name is Katrina I'm 35 years old. I had three pregnancies before mirena. 9,8,2. My mirena partially fell out and was lodged in my canal and even with ultrasounds they could not find it. They had to dilate my cervix in order to get it out. I found out I was pregnant 3 months after and lost my son after 14 weeks. Four months later I was pregnant again only to make it to 8 weeks this time. The first one I had a d&c the second one came out on its own. My cervix was flat before that mirena got lodged. Now it feels as tho it is lumped with scar tissue. I try to think maybe I should just be happy with the three healthy children that I have but that doesn't make loosing two precious lives any easier. My husband would like to keep trying till we have a son but I'm so scared that it will keep ending in miscarriage. I feel like between the mirena and lovenox that there is no hope. I feel as though even if I ask questions I'm not going to get truthful answers and it makes me just want to get my tubes tied just so I don't go through all the emotional stess. My heart aches for all of you knowing exactly how you feel.

I'm almost 32 now with a healthy 1yo daughter. I had a mirena put in at the local health dept. In 2005 when they were quite new to the market, at no charge. I kept it the full 5 years and had a second put in place asap, I had been very pleased with little to no cycles. I was engaged before and I remarried shortly after. We wanted to wait a few more yeas on his first baby. In 2013 around Christmas the device came out when wiping. I didn't tell my husband not wanting to put stress on the bedroom time. We had just planned to have it out in Feb 14. When I didn't get pregnant I sought out my doctors advice. He placed me on clomid. I found out Feb 15 we were expecting, I was only 5 weeks. We told everyone! ! At 12 weeks I had cramping on a Friday, light spots that night and Saturday a heavy bright flow. I went to the er to confirm but they said it could be normal at 8 weeks, but I should have been 12! They never confirmed it, but my on did Monday. They did d&c. Now Oct 15 I was 5 weeks, not taking clomid, and a repeat happened at 8 weeks this time. That's when I started looking at mirena postings about misscarriages. It seems a common thread of mc between 8-14 weeks. I'm currently on my first day of bleeding and plan to see my ob in the morning.

I got the mirena put in May 2014, 12 weeks after having DS2. I do believe I had a missed miscarriage before him, however I never got a positive pregnancy test. I removed the mirena in August of 2015, I was checking the strings mid period and pulled gently and it slipped right out. I had a period at the end of September, and again the end of October. November 24, 2015 I'm shocked to find out we are expecting. Two days later, on Thanksgiving, something feels off, but symptoms are strong. The following day I start cramping and no longer have symptoms. Still hold out hope for a healthy pregnancy. Saturday and Sunday no urgency to pee first thing in the morning, still cramping. Sunday afternoon I start spotting, very light pink. I try not to worry and continue my day. At 4 pm, I started bleeding bright red, and its continued into clots and heavy bleeding . My SO and I are devastated. Thinking about trying again, now that we both know for sure we want a third child. But I'm scared I'll miscarry again.

I had the Mirena inserted two years ago. I have three healthy children 12, 8, and 5. All pregnancies went smoothly. I am a healthy 31 year old who does not smoke or drink. I decided on Mirena because I did not want to take birth control pills as I already had my gallbladder removed at age 25 due to the Yaz birth control. On August 31, I made an emergent OBGYN appt for severe bleeding. I had a vaginal ultrasound done that located a 7 week pregnancy. I was put on bed rest. I returned that Thursday for another ultrasound that confirmed pregnancy but also located a large uterine hematoma caused because they were forced to remove my IUD after finding pregnancy on first appt. I went to doctor for third appointment the this Tuesday and hematoma was growing but baby was still alive. I went today for appt with high risk OB who informed me baby had died. I am now scheduled for a D&C tomorrow.

My name is Ashley. I have 3 healthy babies age 6,5, and 3. After my last child my doctor recommended me the mirena and she told me it was the best birth control out there so I told her I would use that because we didn't want anymore children at the time. So in 2011 I had the mirena inserted and had it removed in Feb of 2014 because I had gain almost 100lbs while being on it. I didn't have a period for 3years and didn't think it was normal. After having it removed I found out I was pregnant December 2014 and I had a miscarriage in January 2015 after finding out I was 8 weeks pregnant. I have never had a miscarriage until then. We was so happy because we was going to have our 4th and final child and our family would be complete. Since then we have tryes to get pregnant and everytime its a failure. So I do not recommend the iud to anyone especially if u have never had children before.

This is my story. Before the iud I had been pregnant 5 times in 2005,2007,2010,2013,and 2014 I have 5 beautiful healthy girls in Jan 2014 I had my last daughter Zoe'e and decided I wanted to wait to have another baby so I had the iud put in feb 2014 at my 6week check up. In sept 2014 I went to the hospital with horrible pains and they seen the my body was rejecting the iud for some reason and my cervix were healing around the tip that was hanging out so they removed it. And it wasnt easy for or the dr, you talk about pain ! In june 2015 I found out I was pregnant with baby number 6. I was soooo happy and so were my lil ones but on June 13 at 2:12am I started bleeding BAD so I went to the hospital and there was no baby so I figure thats what I seen in the toilet.. You talk about the worst feeling ever I just wanna cry now... After 5 healthy full term pregnancies why in the world would I now have a miscarriage... THAT IUD!!! I WOULD NEVER EVER IN LIFE RECOMMEND THIS BIRTH CONTROL TO ANYONE!!!

Had Mirena for 5+ years, am 37 now. Previously had three pregnancies, three healthy babies. No complications, no miscarriages. Planned Parenthood did not bother to do an ultrasound before insertion, was not aware I had a severe tilt to uterus and not surprisingly it was extremely painful, was cramping for a week. I first started to try to get it removed after 5 years, it took two doctor visits which did not work as the iud had migrated and cord was no longer accessible. Went in for a D&C, was very traumatic and painful, did not work. Finally managed to get it out with a laproscopy. I was told my uterus still looked good but I doubt they really looked for scar tissue. We started trying for another baby after that, I was pregnant last year and lost the baby at 20 weeks along. I was told the baby stopped developing at 17 weeks. I refused a D&C and instead went into labor and gave birth at the hospital. It was a boy, and I was absolutely devastated, it was my first miscarriage ever. I never had any morning sickness though and with all previous pregnancies I was sick the whole time. Got pregnant again this spring, just lost it today at 12 weeks. This time the baby never developed at all. Like someone else mentioned, just a sack...no baby. Yet I am constantly nauseous. I am numb at this point, and almost positive it is because of my damn iud. I would never have gotten one if I knew I would be done having kids.

I am finding it very hard to find a lawyer that will take on an "emotional distress case for mirena. Just because it didnt damage any organs doesn't mean its ok. Like many other women who conceived after mirena not being surgically removed, i had a miscarriage at 14 weeks. Its not just a coincidence that 80% of women miscarried. This would possibly fall under "negligent infliction of emotional distress". Which to be successful in a lawsuit the distress must result from physical injury or be so egregious that it results in physical symptoms (hints miscarriage). To sue for emotional distress physical harm or illness (miscarriage) has to have been caused. I wish their was a lawyer with integrity to take a look at this.

I got pregnant with my first child at the age of 17. I had to have a C-section because my water started to run dry. Long story short, my son will be seven years old this year. One year after I had him, my family decided that its best for me to get an IUD so I got the MIRENA. I had the Mirena Placed 11/2009 and it was removed November 2014. I bleed for a few weeks. I didn't try to get pregnant. I actually didn't even know that I was. I felt really sick one Saturday, cramping bad, heavy bleeding. It was around the time where my cycle usually comes on, it was February 21ST 2015, to be exact. I went to my local MD NOW and they informed me that my pregnancy test was positive, however its a really faint line and it sounds as if I am having a miscarriage. They wanted me to go to my hospital to get something called a D&C. So the same day I went to the hospital and they informed me that my HG LEVELS were 176 and to come back in a few days. I did and it went up to 679. At that point I went to my OBGYN and they did blood work + urine test and the validated that I were pregnant. I started to bleed really bad on April 10, 2015 and I went in for an ultrasound and there were no baby ! no baby sac ! no nothing. I was devastated and the expectant father was also sad. My last two pap's came back abnormal. Its just so sad to have to deal with all of this. I really hope that I am able to give my son a brother or sister one day, and the expectant father his first child. But you all are not alone.

I'm currently 22 (may2015) I have 2 boys age 15 months and 2 months. I'm a relatively healthy person i could exorcize a little but not to lose weight or anything.
Anyway I see all these post and i'm not saying it isn't cause of the BC but there could be other factors.
I just got my Mirena IUD put in April 15th. (i have 2 kids i'm not ready for another one yet) and yes it did just cost me a miscarriage (i didn't know i was pregnant when it got put in. yes they tested me it came back negative. i was no more than 4 weeks so i got pregnant the only time i slept with my SO before having it inserted (we used a condom) April 10th.
However even without the IUD being inserted i might of still suffered a miscarriage. I got pregnant for the first time May 2013 delivered a healthy boy February 2014 then found out 4 months later i was pregnant again and we were happy then at the 6-8 week mark i miscarried got pregnant again about a week or two later which gave me baby #2 march 2015 and now may 2015 miscarried again.
Before the IUD i used Nuva ring and got pregnant while on it.
So i'm not trying to say it's not what caused it and maybe my story will change in 5 years when i do want to try to have another baby but right now all i'm saying is there could be other factors.
Yes i did have a miscarriage while using Mirena but it could be the same reason i had my first miscarriage (I got pregnant too soon after having my baby).

Hi. I am a healthy 24 year old. I have a 2 year old son born in February of 2013. Shortly after his birth in April 2013 I had the Mirena IUD inserted. I recently had it removed in November 2014. After two normal cycles, I found out I was pregnant. We were very happy to find out it had happened so soon and we're very excited to plan for the new baby. I had an ultrasound performed 8w6d (baby measured smaller) and our little cutie was perfect with a strong heartbeat (seen not heard yet). Almost two weeks later I began spotting just a little bit. And at 10w4d we went to the ER and found out the baby no longer had a heartbeat. I had to have a D&C performed. I don't know if the Mirena caused this, since I have had 1 healthy pregnancy before with no complications. But I do wish it were investigated for us.

Hello, I am now 28 years old. I would like to share my mirena experience with the world so it might at least convince one woman to refuse this form of birth control, so here goes. I gave birth to a healthy boy in May of 2009, and then had a mirena placed in January 2010. Mirena remained in palce for 4 1/2 years and was the worst experience ever. I was depressed all the time, my hair fell out by handfulls, my knees and ankles ached all of the time, not to mention reacurring infections for the whole 4 years. Every time I would go to the doc and ask them to remove the IUD they would give me some lame excuse and say that my symptoms were not caused by Mirena. Towards the end of the 4 years I had this, I began to experience pregnancy symptoms every month, but never tested positive. Finally I was near enough to the expire date so they removed it for me in May 2014. We got pregnant in july after removal and I miscarried very early. We were pregnant again in Dec 2014. I had a healthy ultrasound at 8.5 weeks with a strong heartbeat. I went back for my 14 wk checkup March 12 to find out the baby was no longer alive and I have to have a D&C. I do believe Mirena is to blame. My body has not been the same since I allowed the docs to insert this device.

I had the Mirena inserted a few weeks after the birth of my second child in 2012. The process was nothing like it should have been. It took the doctor nearly ten minutes to insert it, all the while I cried and was shaking. After he finally got it in he said I needed an ultrasound, that he was afraid he had broken the IUD. I was pouring blood. Ultrasound showed everything was okay except the IUD wasn't as high in my uterus as it should have been but the doctor said in time my body should pull it up. Over the next few months I experienced non-stop bleeding and pain. I was examined twice and told all was normal. Seven months in and I couldn't take any more. I went to a new OB who removed my IUD and told me it had began to embed. Since its removal I have experienced frequent spotting and irregular bleeding and pain. I suffered a missed miscarriage in January 2014 and am currently experiencing yet another miscarriage. I feel the Mirena changed my body but I honestly don't know if it is the IUD or the doctor who put it in to blame. I am heartbroken.

I found out last week that I was five weeks pregnant. I was happy to to hear that after having my iud from July 09-nov14. Last night I started light bleeding with no pain or much cramping..I woke up in the morning to find it still continuing lightly with some pain...I hadn't experienced this before when I was pregnant with my daughter..so I went to the hospital to get answers. It turns out I was In the process of a miscarriage :( never again will I request or recommend an iud!

I have had two misscarriages, gave birth to a lil girl (which was a blessing because i almost lost that pregnancy too) i got the mirena iud placed after that, after about a year i had a couple weeks or so of feeling nauseous, like morning sickness one day I started bleeding heavy and was in soo much pain that I couldn't stand up, I really feel like I had another miscarriage, after all I know how they feel, after that I took the mirena out i got my tubes tied because I couldn't deal with it, I'm only 24 but losing three babies did me in, I also feel like I have ptsd because I still have nightmares and I cannot handle hearing about babies dying or miscarriages, it's very hard, I wanted more children but after hearing about the mirena causing more miscarriages i was too scared... They had to give me a shot after my second miscarriage and i had emergency surgery because they sent me home to misscarry when i was at 12weeks and i bled too much, i know maybe a support group or something would help but I have been too afraid to try something like that... I'm not over losing my babies and i never will be, in a support group I would have to sit and talk about it all over again, it's hard just typing it, but to all the ladies out there who feel alone, you are not...

I had mirena removed after having it for about 6 months. I did not feel like myself while on it and it also caused me to lose a lot of hair. After its removal 3 months later I had a positive preg test. My husband and I were extremely excited with the news. We did think it was best to wait 12 weeks before letting our families know. At 7 weeks I experienced a miscarriage for the first time. I had had 3 successful pregnancies prior to mirena so this was completely new for me. Devastating! We have not used any form of birth control since with hopes of conceiving but without luck so far. I wish I had never had it implanted as I am certain it's why I miscarried. Not I can't stop thinking about it. I try to move on but it consumes my thoughts everyday since my miscarriage August 2, 2014.

I had an IUD back in 2005 and January 2007 I became pregnant while the IUD was still in place. The doctor told me that he will need to remove the IUD and I can possibly have a miscarriage. Well he removed the IUD and a week later I miscarried. Then I got pregnant again May 2007 and lost my baby August 2007 a couple of weeks before my marriage. I was coming to the end of my first trimester I miscarried and had to get a D & C procedure done. It was so awful to have to go through all that! And then I got pregnant again the following year and that was with my son who is now 4 years old. I did have him full term. Well I just found out a couple of days ago that I was pregnant. I was bleeding heavily for a couple of weeks and my doctor just told me today that I completely miscarried. I'm wondering if the reason for all this is because of the Mirena. I had 3 healthy pregnancies before I even knew about the Mirena. And then after using the Mirena I have had 3 miscarriages! I don't think this is right at all. If the reason being is the Mirena other women should know so that they don't have to go through this because of birth control that is pushed in your face as the best thing out there. I'm so heartbroken and upset! I'm so scared to even try again and having to go through and put my family through this awful scenario all over again. I wanted to have my baby and because these pharmaceuticals are all about making money they can't tell women the truth! And women keep losing there babies because of it! That is just so wrong on so many levels!

Ive had the IUD in for 2 years I am 28 with 3 kids. I never had a period on the mirena IUD but these past 5 days I would pee then wipe and notice a light pink color on the toilet paper and I would have bad cramping on. My left side could I have had a miscarriage or did the IUD shift on me

My name is Jamie I am 28, I had several bleeding problems over the years was on yaz for 6 an even the depo shot. After having my child early due to a 60% placental abbruption almost ending my life an my child's I was told that I couldn't have ne more children an survive that the mirena would b best. Its been in there almost 5yrs now I just got out the hospital profusely vomiting an pain radiating through my bones an insides in pelvic region I had already been misdiagnosed so at my e.r visit the woman said I had pelvic I flammatory disease was sent home with 6 prescriptions that night after agony of 2more long painful days later still vomiting worse from pain no relief I couldn't even use the bath RM. I ended up back at same e.r. where a man Dr. Admitted me they referred a specialist Dr. Reardon on who was the most unprofessional Dr. With no bedside manner sent me home sick I followed up nothing but derogatory stuff was said to me I left the office crying. Its been a month the pain n symptoms still there I'm set up with my 6th Dr. To get it removed I've tried everything on the market an now the mirena BC had no options but hysterectomy as if the same Dr. That implanted it ulga sarcodi an about killed me waiting til I'd abbrupted an forfeited me ever having children. I'm not myself emotionally its cost me a lot of out pocket medical expenses over months of pain an a month of me feel I like I'm dying to seek help. Hoping someone with compassion can help me with the pain an suffering I've dealt with that I didn't ask for an never wanted. Please I pray u have eyes to see an ears to hear me out n help...
