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 ovarian cysts are a possible side effect of Mirena 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 Mirena in so either all its a no win situation. The only advantage is that with the Mirena 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 cysts 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 ovarian cysts 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 mirena.
Avatar f tn Hi I have had a mirena 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 cysts. My file at the gynea is filled with reported cases of ovarian cysts, 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 mirena IUD should not be held responsible for the ovarian cysts. Functional ovarian 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 ovarian cysts, 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 mirena 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 cysts and depression. I do not think ovarian cysts 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 ovarian cysts. 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 ovarian cysts one 3cm and the other slightly smaller, i was already on mirena 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 cysts. I believe that most cysts 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 Mirena put in because I was having ovarian cysts. 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 Mirena 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 mirena 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 Ovarian cysts 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 Ovarian cysts 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 mirena iud?? Just wondering THANKS!
Avatar f tn I have had my Mirena 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 Mirena has the SAME effectiveness as a Tubal, so I decided to stick with the Mirena. 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 Mirena 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. Ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and other conditions can all cause back pain.
Avatar f tn Breakthrough bleeding, ovarian cysts,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.
