I`m due to have it changed, well overdue actually.
I was really pleased when after always having rather heavy periods the mirena lightened and eventually stopped them.
I`bve not had a period for about 4 years now and just wondered if this is normal with the mirena.
I`m hyperthyroid and just wanted to be sure it wasn`t that that had stopped them and is in fact just the coil ?
Cheers x

Most likely your mirena.

Rejoice! (and arrange to get a new one fitted)

fakeblonde - if you go over the 5 years before getting a new mirena, your periods may come back with a vengeance.

When you go to get it changed, ask your health care professional to take blood for thyroid check.

Also, are you near menopause age?

Hope not i`m 37 and would love another baby soon.However i am just getting over a pretty bad episode of thyrotoxicosis and now also got a slipped disk so i want to spend a year getting my health up to scratch and ensure my thyroid levels are good,otherwise when i do conceive i`ll have hyperemesis again which is the worst thing i`ve evr had !
Thanjks though i`ll go get my mirena changed soon x
