i have recently had mirena IUS fitted, i am concerned as i have symptoms of pregnancy but wonder if it could be due to the hormones in the mirena. i have been feeling nauseous, my stomach is bloated and hard, my breasts are tender and larger
Me too I've had mine in since 16th March... Boobs feel bigger and I feel sick (sometimes) If I was you I would do a PT and see if it comes out positive its the only way your gonna know. I do believe you'll get some unusual symptoms though. Have you had any abnormal bleeding???
My mirena coil was fitted two weeks ago. I did not have any of the expected bleeding/ spotting after it was inserted and my period (due a week ago) did not arrive. As if this wasn't bad enough, about the same time my period was due, I developed the horrendous nausea like morning sickness I had with my previous pregnancies. Despite knowing there was very little chance I was pregnant, my paranoia forced me to take 2 pg tests as i just felt so 'pregnant'. They were negative. Ive been on so many forums now that report these kind of effects with the mirena. So many pregnancy symptoms seem to be so common with this coil yet in my opinion this is not advertised widely enough when it is inserted.
You should be advised before it is fitted that for the first 2 months while your womb lining is thinning you might get some hormone side effects but they get less and less and should have gone by 3 months. I had one and thought it was brilliant - would happily use one again.
I've also fitted the mirena in lots of women who love them. Sometime's it's just a matter of hanging in there for the first few weeks - it's worth it!Our consent forms always mention the hormone side effects so it must have been a shock if you weren't expecting them!
Janeandco don't rush to buy tests and try not to worry - it's perfectly normal.
