I am just wondering if there are folks who have experienced worsening migraines from an IUD and if removals has improved those symptoms.
I’ve suffered from headaches most of my life, but my migraines were episdoic until 3 years ago, about 1 year after my Mirena IUD was place. I remember before I got the IUD that I read some stories of people having problems from the IUD, but the percentage was low.
As I said before, I was good for the first year, but then I started worsening, and now I have really become pretty flared up. I am on my fourth medication treatment to try to resolve the issue and nothing seems to make any difference. My doctor wants me to try botox, but my husband and I were discussing the idea of having children (assuming I can gain some control over my migraines and thyroid).
The IUD packet even warns about worsen Migraines and headaches (low 7.7 percent experience this side-effect though) in the treatment information but neither my Endrocrinologist (for my Hypothyroid), My Primary Doctor, nor My Neurologist ever mentioned anything about my IUD being a cause of concern with my worsening migraines. I didn’t/haven’t brought it up to them yet.
Thanks for any experiences, examples, info 🙂
