Ovarian cysts with mirena

Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts with mirena


Avatar_n_tn The same thing happened one year ago, I was diagnosed with a 7cm cyst and I had a laproscopic cystectomy 3 weeks after the diagnosis and when they did the surgery they said the cyst was gone. I have heard that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s are a possible side effect of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> but have been told it's not common. Has anyone else ever experienced this? I have really bad leg and back pain currently. I'm scheduled for surgery again in 3 weeks.
Avatar_f_tn I could get the cysts back without having the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> in so either all its a no win situation. The only advantage is that with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> I will not be bleeding all the time and when I get my actual period I will not be flooding the bed for the first two days with the heavy flow. Prior to that I had the copper coil for 8 years with no problems. I have said anyway if I get another cyst I will demand a hysterectomy as I am not being cut open all the time.
Avatar_f_tn There is some good info on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s on the health pages attached to this forum (top right). Good luck with everything.
Avatar_f_tn I had mirena for one year, had absolutely no period. I did have really bad cramps and i ended up with a lot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s that landed me in the hospital frequently. It also caused weight gain and headaches for me. Plus my hubby could feel it too, I will not use it again. After I had it taken out in July I conceived in Nov.
Avatar_f_tn But i bled for months when i had it removed. My sister had a tubal pregnancy with hers and ended up losing her tube due to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span>.
Avatar_f_tn Hi I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> iud in for 10 months and about 4 months ago I was diagnosed with a 3 cm ovarian cyst, complex with a daughter cyst. 6 weeks later I had a repeat u/s and it disappeared but my left ovary had a 3 cm simple cyst. My doc put me on b/c pills for 3 months to help prevent more cysts and then I will have another u/s to see how things look. My questions are is it possible the mirena iud causes the cysts. My doc.
Avatar_f_tn My gynea removed the mirena IUD coil as it was suspected that it was the cause off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. My file at the gynea is filled with reported cases of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s, all on the right ovary - the gynea counted 7 in total from 2009 till November 2011 - and those were only the cases that were reported to her. I remember 3 other cases since 2009 where I had cysts that ruptured (by now I know the pain) while I was at home. My question is - what can be done to fix this?
Avatar_f_tn HI, The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> IUD should not be held responsible for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. Functional <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> cysts occur because of hormonal problems. Such types of cysts often undergo spontaneous regression. The dermoid cyst especially if it is growing rapidly may require removal. Consult a gynaecologist for an evaluation and to determine the cause of pain. Hope this helps. Take care and good luck.
Avatar_f_tn research about supplementing with iodine. I've had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s, one even the same size as my ovary which I saw on ultrasound. Iodine deficiency can lead to cysts in all different places, the ovaries, uterus, breasts, skin. Dr. Jorge Flechas, Dr. Brownstein and some other doctors have info online you can read. I've had good results taking iodine, I used Lugol's drops every day, need to start taking it again actually lol. Taking the iodine also helps my period be regular, short and lighter.
Avatar_f_tn Asked about the bleeding, was told it was a bit long, but not unheard of with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> removal. Last week, I was able to get in to see my ob/gyn, after a bit of trouble. Mentioned the bleeding (still!), pain, and an 'odd' feeling inside of my vagina, like things had shifted/moved down. Also felt like there was...something in the entrance. As soon as the exam started, he remarked on the size of left ovarian cysts, and said he could feel my uterus. Ordered an US and x-ray.
Avatar_f_tn I have had the mirena coil in for 15 Months now, i went to the Practice Nurse a few weeks ago with all sorts of symptoms inc lack of bladder control and continuous dark discharge, initial inspection by the Nurse found a swollen cervix, so infection tests were carried out, they came back negative, with symptoms including lower back pain and sharp contraction like pains, i was refered for urgent scan, during the Ultra sound scan at least one cyst 30mmX30mmX40mm was found on my right ovary, the dul
Avatar_n_tn However, I can answer you generally that there can be a link between ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s and depression. I do not think <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s cause depression; however if your hormones are out of balance causing you to have ovarian cysts--the same imbalance can be a result of brain dysfunctions that can be linked to depression or brain dysfunctions ie a dysfunctional hypothalamic pulse generator can cause ovulation dysfunction and ovarian cysts.
356929_tn?1246393356 Last year I was diagnosed with reoccurring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. My doctor put me on birth control to see if that would help (of course I had to try several different types until we found one that "seems" to be helping...Nuva Ring). Last week I had some routine blood work done and my thyroid levels were 3.38 and normal is supposed to be 2.50. now I'm certainly wondering if the cysts and the hypothyroidism are related and also if birth control is a contributing factor as well.
Avatar_f_tn i have two <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s one 3cm and the other slightly smaller, i was already on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> an iud and now put on yaz to for birth control to shrink the cysts but now my breast are swelling really bad, what should i look out for as for complications, is this safe?
Avatar_n_tn It depends on the type of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. I believe that most <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s grow in size and volume with each period. However if yours have stayed abou the same size, I am not sure what type you may have. One very frequent cause of bleeding is cysts, however, and I'm surprised your gyn didn't think that the cyst could be causing it.
Avatar_f_tn A couple years ago I had the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> put in because I was having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. This helped until 5 months ago. Now they are back with a vengeance. I had the mirena removed a couple of weeks ago so I could try other bc options. I am wondering if anyone else gets cysts back to back like this? I feel as though I am losing my mind being in this constant pain. I am a healthy 29 year old with one child.
Avatar_n_tn The symptoms that you describe remind me of the side effects associated with the mirena coil (if I have that spelled incorrectly, then please excuse me!
Avatar_f_tn I'm a very athletic, late 30s, and on-the-go with a rewarding but busy career and wanted to try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> to deal with periods that had become heavy and long, even causing me to become tired and anemic. Plus the periods are just a drag as you get older, especially when you have life to live, right? I had the mirena inserted while on my period around mid-April 2012 and now it's two months later, mid-June 2012, and I'm bleeding on nearly a daily basis, sometimes heavy and bright red, sometimes dark.
Avatar_f_tn i had to avoid the pill because of the hormones... for other reasons ... ever since i have been on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> i have had no problems with ovarian cysts! ask your doctors about this. not sure if it is related but its worth asking because i know they are sooo painful.
232077_tn?1218426943 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s have been diagnosed in about 12% of mirena users. In most cases, the enlarged follicles disappeared spontaneously during two to three months of observation. Yet when I asked 4 different OB/GYN's if my mirena would have been the cause of my cysts they look at me as if I'm crazy! any women on here have problems like this with the mirena? I was really hoping it would work for me, but I guess I'm SOL with it.
Avatar_n_tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s are actually pretty common with the IUD. I was lucky enough to either not have one or not know about it if I did. I do think it is a good idea to get it looked at a little more closely, but generally they go away on their own, depending on what kind they are.
Avatar_f_tn Has anyone out there had any problems with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> iud?? Just wondering THANKS!
1181036_tn?1367372240 They had horrible side effects, mood swings, constant nausea, stomach cramps, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s etc.
Avatar_f_tn I have had my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> for 5 years with no serious side affects. The first few months very light periods then eventually none at all except for some spotting a few times a year. I experienced painful cramps for about a day or two each month around the time I would have my period but that was only for about the first year and a half eventually it was the best thing for me no periods, no pregnancy, and no other noticeable side effects.
Avatar_f_tn At my last annual exam, I had discussed the option of tubiligation versus IUD, and was convinced that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> has the SAME effectiveness as a Tubal, so I decided to stick with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span>. Since finding out I am pregnant, I have done a lot of research, and had a lot of testing done, which I am still in the process of...once I got the positive urine test, had to make an emergency appt with my doctor to see where my IUD was..to my surprise, it was EXACTLY where is was supposed to be!
514428_tn?1287602056 My doctor told me I was too young for a TL, and told me to get the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirena</span> IUD. I'll start off with a couple years ago~ After having my twins, the pain was terrible a year after having them. I seen my doctor and he wanted me to get an U/S to see what was causing the pain. The tech. was doing the U/S, but just looking in my uterus. I told her it was on the left side of my uterus (ovary) and she said she could only do what the doctor told her to do. I was upset.
Avatar_m_tn Yes, it can be. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s, endometriosis, and other conditions can all cause back pain.
Avatar_f_tn Breakthrough bleeding, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s,amenorrhea,breast tenderness ,ectopic pregnancy are common side effects of mirena.Pargard is relatively inexpensive and contains copper and no hormones. It can be easily inserted and removed. Heavy menses and increased chances of ectopic pregnancy are its side effects experienced by few women. The decision on which method is most suitable for you can be taken only by your gynecologist who knows your medical condition best.
