Just wanted to see if anyone has had strange side effects from the Mirena coil. The Mirena coil was very heavily pushed at my 6 week check after giving birth, so i agreed as it seemed straight forward and reliable since I now have two children under 3! Since then I have had real problems losing baby weight, and been exhausted ( both symptoms obviously common with post birth!) however I have also had lots of headaches, constant thirst and now have developed ringing in my ears and a feeling of "ear fullness" (like you've been swimming) which is making me feel quite all could be something else but my gut instinct is it's the coil....does anyone else have a similar experience?

The inability to lose weight is a symptom I had when I had a Mirena. I also had teenage acne (that I'd never had as a teenager hmm) and it gave me really bad PMT, although no periods.

Your ear thing sounds unrelated and more like labyrinthitis to me, but I'm not a doc (have suffered with it though!).

Are you bfing? That would give the thirst and maybe the headaches (from thirst) too. Or if you're not bfing are you drinking enough? I have that ear fullness thing and I have a copper coil, but don't think they're related, I have ear issues and get regular infections - maybe you ahve a bit of an infection?
