So sad, cause I chose this for myself but I experienced major hair loss, anger/rage episodes and I only had it in for 3-4 months. Since removal I've had anxiety, cyclic breast pain and pms issues including hormonal imbalance. it's been almost 3 years.
Depression, mood changes, and abnormal behavior– all are common side effects of long-term Mirena use. At any given point, 6.4% of all Mirena users are reported clinically depressed. Even though these side effects should go away after removing the IUD, many women still suffer complications, especially those who remove the IUD early. According to one study, depression occurs after the removal of Mirena in 36% of women under age 33. Women age 33+ are at an even higher risk.
