Mirena and Ovarian Cysts

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any information about the Mirena and if it can cause ovarian cysts after the 3 month initial window? I am either having an incredibly sucky run of luck or the IUD is responsible. I have had 4 cysts -- the current one is up to grapefruit size. So, the doc feels that the mirena is not the cause because I have had it for 6 months. I am now on the pill and have a mirena, which is stupid and making me even more ill.

So, here's the question, is it the mirena. Should I have it removed even though my RE swears it is helping my endometriosis issues??

I had the Mirena for 3.5 years and got ovarian cysts often while it was in. It's been out for a year now, and haven't had any cysts. Even the Mirena website states that they are a side effect, so not sure why your Dr. would say that it couldn't be the cause.

I just checked the website. Unbelievable. I'm getting this puppy out. It may help the endo, but so will the pill and why the heck would I stay on both! I am infertile to begin with so this all seems like hormonal overload to me. I need surgery for the cyst so I am having the mirena out at the same time.
