I have had the Mirena for 6 yrs and have suffered with severe anxiety and panic at rakes was diagnosed with agoraphobia I am untreated due to my body rejecting all the medicines they have tried, has anybody had the Mirena removed and had the anxiety subside!!! or am I doomed forever now?
Wyominganxiety; if it is right it says that this IUD EXPIRES AFTER 5 YEARS YOU MUST CALL YOUR DOCTOR AND DECIDE IF YOU WANT IT REPLACED AND IN THE MEAN TIME USE A DIFFERENT FORM OF BIRTH CONTROL. aLSO, I DO SEE HEADACHES AND OTHER THINGS BUT NOTHING ABOUT ANXIETY SO TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT THAT ALSO. but anyway you look at it you are overdue to have this replaced call your doctor today. Chuck1957 also ask about your anxiety. Chuck1957 Again if your using this for birth control it is expired. CHUCK.
I used to only have anxiety attacks. I got the Mirena put in and... bam... I now have constant anxiety WITH anxiety attacks. Most days are painful. I've heard this from other women too.
