Exercise and Mirena?
Posted over a year ago
Does anyone know if you can exercise like normal with Mirena in..? like doing situps, and crunches, etc etc? should you wait after its been in for a little while? please help! what did you experience??
Jaxmichelle - You should be able to exercise no problem, but read the other posts and beware of this IUD. I have had mine in for almost two years and have experience a million problems from it. I am getting it out on Sept 5th and hopefully, all my problems will go away.
Yvo - I've had the Mirena for 6 months. I had continuous light bleeding for the first 3 months. Now bleeding is totally random. When not bleeding, I have a discharge so have to wear pant liners/pads all the time. I get headaches, lower back pain, severe painful bloating, have a spotty face and I have gained 7 kg since the Mirena was fitted. I am seriously considering having it removed. I feel it has changed my life and certainly not for the better.
Ladybugg022211 - I recently had a baby back in Feb. The experience was so tramatic I asked the Dr. to give me depo shot before I omit from labor and delivery. when i cam back for my 6wk check up (April) I asked would he insert the mirena (I was trying to make sure I never got preg. again til I knew I was ready). The 1st day I had it inserted i cramped like crazy...then a few days later things seemed normal. I learned that when my period is about to come on I began to have severe cramping but that wasn't anything new. But what I began to experience a month later is what's been puzzling me. I began to feel so tired as though I couldn make it out the bed, and nausea was crucial. Flet like i was preg all over again. Well now in the month of June things have gotten worse. Ear infection, sore throat, fever, extreme fatigue and nausea, chest pain just about every symptom you can name but when i went to the dr. he said it could not the mirena it may be a bug that I caught or something. So I got tested for HIV, clamedia, gonnorhea, x-ray, heart test, thyroid and even a serum preg test and everything came back NEGATIVE!!! What the hell is going on?!! It has to be the mirena!!!
