Mirena Side Effects
While most people know me for my advocate work in the environment, I am finding myself as involved, if not more involved in women’s health issues and the products that we use. I am now 52 years young, gone through menopause, a first time grandmother and well… just being a woman who relates to other women, I have begun to look more closely into my own health issues and recognize the issues going on out there. I worry that more often than not we aren’t being told the whole truth. We trust in our doctors who they themselves aren’t always told the truth about studies and or effects that certain drugs and or products can have, which they actually end up recommending to us and therefore we often times feel lost and don’t know where to go for help. This is why I started the Essure Procedure site and now the Mirena Side Effects site.
I hope that this site is a place where you can come and share your story and thoughts. This is a place where you can link to other Facebook groups, read blogs and learn about what rights you may have and current news on the Mirena IUD. This is a place where women can become stronger together. We talk and share what happens to us and find comfort from others who are experiencing the same issues. I have had numerous women who have already come to me with reports of seizures, complications that have led to a death in this particular story, blackouts, joint and muscle problems, perforation of the device into the uterine wall that can embed into other organs, neurological problems and a host of thousands of other symptoms. Reports show that the FDA has lodged some 108,884 complaints since 2000.
This site is not intended to scare anyone but rather to inform you, to share and read other stories so you know that you aren’t alone and to help assist you. We can use our voices collectively to not only help ourselves but other women before they make a choice that could be wrong for them; a choice that could have debilitating effects. As I have said on the Essure site, choosing forms of birth control is solely up to each and every individual woman but for me and I believe others, I may choose my birth control but when I am not fully informed or know of what harm could happen and I end up losing my uterus, or having my uterine wall perforated, then that isn’t something I signed up for and I will speak up.
We are here to help so please join us in our efforts to inform others and right a wrong.
