Mirena and joint pains have not been reported, however it does unfortunately cause as its side effects the following:

Abdominal Pain (stomach pain)
Back pain
Breast pain

If you think its too bothersome, you may seek advice to alter/change the dose, please.

Take care, be safe & well, best wishes!

I beleive it does cause joint pain. I had my mirena for 2 years of that I had hip and joint pain for 1.5 years. I had the mirena removed because it was causing bleeding and suddenly my joint pain disappeared. Google Mirena and joint pain, you are not alone. The maker of mirena is just not sharing this side effect.

I had the merena in for 18 months and was having severe knee and elbow pain as well as yeast infection after yeast infection. I didn't even think that the merena could be causing it until I had it removed about 2 weeks ago and suddenly all my joint pain is going away and haven't gotten an infection as well. I just hope that there is no long term damage from it. This merena has been nothing but a nightmare! Never again!! free discount card
