Mirena hair loss side effects information for women using the new FDA approved Mirena intrauterine contraceptive.
Mirena (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) is a birth control that can last up to 5 years. It is an intrauterine contraceptive made of soft flexible plastic that delivers small amounts of hormone directly to the female uterus. Mirena needs to be put in place by your doctor at his or her clinic.
The advantage of this new birth control system is that it works without requiring you to take a pill on a regular basis. It also keeps your hormone levels steadier and possibly less undesirable side effects due to hormonal fluctuations.
Please note that there is not one birth control that works for everyone and there are certain risks associated with Mirena that you should know about.
While hair loss is not listed as one of the side effects in Mirena's prescribing information, there are indeed quite a few incidences of hair loss reported by Mirena users.
As a matter of fact, Google keyword search as of Dec 2009 shows that there is a total of 880 global searches for "Mirena Hair Loss" in one month.
