Mother of 4, thanks for all of this information.
I am 46 and had my second Mirena put in a few years ago. The past year and a half I am a hot mess. All of a sudden allergic to everything I put in my mouth, from soy, dairy, even the products in my milk alternatives. The last month High histamine foods are the newest trigger of bloating, fatigue, rosacea, facial swelling etc. My gut tells me that it is related to the Mirena. I honestly enjoyed not having a period and I believe the hormone has helped with the pms that accompanied the periods, but now I believe I am paying a price. My obstacle is how to safely detox off the thing. My doctor just gives me the deer in the head light look because they really don't know anything about it. When I had the first one removed I was in the hospital with a terrible migraine the following day (and I don't get headaches). Maybe a naturopath may be best.
Thanks again for the info!
