Look under the box ! It says it got these from the prescribing pamphlet !! It says click her to look at it and I did and this is whats under the side effects. Read the VERY BOTTOM LINE !!!!!
There are several more common side effects of MIRENA®
• Cramps, dizziness, or faintness while MIRENA® is being inserted. This is
common. Sometimes, the cramping is severe.
• Missed menstrual periods. About 2 out of 10 of women stop having periods
after 1 year of MIRENA® use. The periods come back when MIRENA® is
removed. If you do not have a period for 6 weeks during MIRENA® use, contact
your health care provider.
• Changes in bleeding. You may have bleeding and spotting between menstrual
periods, especially during the first 3 to 6 months. Sometimes the bleeding is
heavier than usual at first. However, the bleeding usually becomes lighter than
usual and may be irregular. Call your health care provider if the bleeding remains
heavier than usual or if the bleeding becomes heavy after it has been light for a while.
• Cyst on the ovary. About 10% (1 out of 10) of women using MIRENA® will have a
cyst on the ovary. These cysts usually disappear on their own in a month or two.
However, cysts can cause pain and sometimes cysts will need surgery.
This is not a complete list of possible side effects. For more information, ask your
health care provider.
