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.

More recently, we also have reports about Mirena related hair loss in our forum:

posted by Amy0916, 17.07.2009, 16:58 "Facts: I had the Mirena IUD put in mid march 09 and had it taken out mid may 09.
Among other side effects it was giving me, my hair was falling out in the fistfuls. Also in the same week in March that I had the Mirena put in, I moved out and my divorce became real. I have been under alot of stresses in the past few months. Before the Mirena I had not been on any form of birth control for over 17 years. I am currently 41.
I thought that after the mirena was out my hair loss would stop. It has not. I luckily had to start with a huge head of hair, but the loss has not really slowed down.  I have had my thyroid checked and doctor says it's normal.  I'm assuming that the massive hormones in the IUD after years of my body regulating itself caused this.  But how do I get my hair to now stop falling out?? It can't continue this way for the next four months like it has been or I will have nothing left.
Is there anything natural supplement I can take to help?"
