O ne of the problems that long-term use of mirena causes in the female body is hormonal imbalances: low progesterone and high estrogen — a condition coined “estrogen dominance.” Progesterone is the female sex hormone and plays an important role in a female’s health. When a woman is on Mirena, the natural internal production of progesterone in the body eventually stops and shuts down completely, since the body was getting sustained release via synthetic progesterone from Mirena. If & after the Mirena is removed, the body would no longer be getting any synthetic progesterone from the mirena, nor would it be producing any progesterone on its own internally, and this causes serious havoc in a woman’s body and a severe hormonal imbalance: now there is no progesterone, and too much estrogen. This is why women go through withdrawal symptoms and experience hell after removing mirena.
If we have had Mirena for a significant amount of time and then had it removed, we need to reverse that imbalance after mirena removal and bring our progesterone & estrogen levels back to normal. This can be approached through diet strategies and applying progesterone cream topically. There are nutrients in certain foods and herbs that increase progesterone levels naturally. There are also other things we need to take to cleanse & detoxify our bodies from any toxins that were accumulated in our bodies to the use of mirena.In order to re-establish hormonal balance and even reach peak hormone health, there are nutrients that your body actually converts over into progesterone and can help with reversing any hormonal imbalance caused by use of mirena after its removal. Some foods and herbs that increase progesterone production naturally in the body are all listed and discussed in great detail in The Complete Mirena Detox Program
Dear Mirena Victim,
Have you recently inserted a Mirena or Paragard IUD, or had it removed?
- Have you gained excess weight that you can’t lose no matter how hard you try?
- Have you noticed painful, unbearable, side effects that you may or may not associate with the Mirena implant?
- Do you feel gloomy, downcast, angry and even depressed even if this is not your characteristic mood?
- Are your medical tests coming back negative or normal?
- Is your Doctor telling you “Everything is fine”…though you know something is wrong and feel angry and helpless about what to do about your side effects and the excess weight?
If you answered yes to some or all of these questions, this page will be one of the most important ones you will ever read with regards to safeguarding your health. I will reveal the truth behind Mirena weight gain and other side effects and the exact steps you need to take to reverse the damage the Mirena implant did to your metabolism and your hormones, and overcome your side effects.
I had my Mirena IUD inserted six weeks after the birth of my first child. Within a few weeks, I developed an ovarian cyst, and then I discovered I had cervical cancer cells. I thought it was a coincidence so I had the procedure for my cancer cells and got another Mirena in.
I had the Mirena in me for 2 years, and the side effects made my life HELL!
Within five months, I had gained 30 pounds and kept gaining weight that I couldn’t lose it no matter how hard I tried. I exercised everyday and went on a very strict low-carb, low-fat diet and nearly starved myself. Yet nothing changed. I had horrible PMS, started growing facial hair, had no sex drive, suffered from serious chronic fatigue, nagging breast pain, random anxiety attacks, and endless pelvic pain.
I was also suffering from serious mood swings and intense feelings of dullness, depression, and irritability. Most of the time, I just didn’t feel like doing anything. Nor could I physically or mentally offer my family the love and care they deserved.
My energy, and spirit, were gone.
I went to doctor after doctor who told me my blood tests are normal and that Mirena can’t cause these problems. My pelvic pain and the side effects persisted and kept getting worse over time.
Then I crashed.
One day I felt very light-headed and dizzy, and it persisted all day long.
I had severe cramping and pain in my stomach.
I had no energy and could not do very much all day, because I kept feeling like I was going to pass out. I thought I was getting sick, but it wasn’t a ‘normal’ illness.
Later that evening, my Mirena came out by itself.
Many of my symptoms still persisted and even became worse even after my Mirena was expelled.
I was at a loss of what to do to restore my health. My doctor thought my symptoms were all in my head! I lost hope that I would ever get better or feel well again.
