I had the Mirena IUD placed 4 months ago and the only negative side effect I have noticed is hair loss. I have noticed it the most in the shower. I haven't experienced it severely, (bald spots, decrease in volume) my hair seems to be the same... for now. Will this continue to get worse? Will I start to experience balding or receding hair line after having it in for a while? I do not want to have it removed, it's been really great!
