What is Mirena? 

Mirena is a device system that contains and releases a progesterone-like hormone, which does not contain oestrogen. It is one of the most common used forms of long-term birth control. It also works in heavy periods of menstrual bleeding. The system can prevent pregnancy for up to 7 years but there is a connection between Mirena and hair loss. 

Does Mirena cause hair loss? 

The answer to the question ‘Does Mirena cause hair loss?’ is that, when you recently have had a Mirena intrauterine device inserted, it is possible that you come to suffer from Mirena IUD hair loss. Mirena coil hair loss is proven in various studies that show that the usage of an IUD that contains levonorgestrel, (something like Mirena) did cause in nearly 16 percent significant Mirena IUD hair loss. But in other studies, the percent differs. You can roughly assume five percent of women that use this system will experience Mirena hair loss. 

Mirena side effects hair loss 

Mirena IUD hair loss can be seen as one of the side effects of Mirena. Mirena coil hair loss appears in thinning hairs. But thinning hairs do not necessarily have to come from Mirena, because there are various other causes for this such as heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, radiation therapy, and stress. There is a treatment for thinning hair that can prevent further thinning, improves the overall hair condition, and can help you to combat Mirena coil hair loss. 

Other side effects of Mirena include headache, acne, breast tenderness, irregular bleeding, mood changes, and cramping or pelvic pain. There are also some serious long-term risks such as abdominal pain, Mirena hair loss, pain during sex and urination, fatigue, and fever. Fortunately, this does not happen very often. Fortunately, Neofollics products can help you counteract your Mirena hair loss. 

Kyleena hair loss 

Kyleena IUD also contains levonorgestrel and therefore Kyleena hair loss is something that can appear when using this IUD. That’s why Kyleena hair loss and Mirena hair loss should be treated carefully by scientifically proven products that can grow your hair back if you take good care of your hair condition yourself and live healthy.
