Re: Mirena IUD and FSD (Female sexual dysfunction ??

The main question to ask would be are you on any anti-depressant medication, or have you been through a major stress making point in your life, i.e. breakup, job loss, career change etc or are you feeling any kind of long term resentment towards your current partner, even boredom or unfulfilment ??
Different things affect people differently. Given that the swing of hormones associated with ovulation etc play a huge part in the female sex drive - if in some way this is being tampered with (which it is with ALL types of hormonal contraception) it may affect your sex drive...
however, having said that.. as women we are supposed to live up to some huge expectation regarding sex and we're openly being told up to 45 % of us have some form of sexual dysfunction. And what exactly is normal.... we work 12 hour days in stressful jobs, shop, cook, clean, look after kids, provide emotional support to everyone, never get angry or cry, try to fix cars and computers as well now... and then, totally exhausted, we're expected to get all hot and bothered about the same man we've been with for many years who, kind as he may be, defintely takes all the above for granted.
We very often want to pin down the ONE thing which we perceive to be responsible for our pain, in this case the mirena - though it is usually a mixture of all the above.
I am currently on anti depressant medication (half dose) as well as have the mirena, and have found that my sex drive is virtually non existent. Given both these supposedly can have an affect, I am looking forward to coming off the anti depressant medication soon, however am very glad that I have been on it as clinical Depression is no joke. I have a long term partner who I have had my serious ups and downs with, though he is understanding in this issue. Yes I would like get my sex drive back up again, but I have had so many life changing issues to deal with I simply refuse to listen to the statistics that there is "something wrong" with me. Take a look at the issues in your life, I honestly believe that in your heart you will know what is affecting you seriously and try to tackle them one by one.. there's no real fixit for emotional pain and it can take time for things to get back to "normal" again...
best of luck...
