Dr. K. :

Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

What brand of iud did you have and for how long did you have it?

Customer: Mirena coil
Dr. K. :

ok, this does have hormones in it but only a minimal amount is absorbed into the blood stream

Dr. K. :

How long did you have it?

Dr. K. :

Due to the fact that it can suppress the menstrual cycle, some women experience hot flashes and night sweats. Anxiety can also be related to the same reason.

Dr. K. :

While it would be a rare reaction to the iud, it is not unheard of.

Customer: 5 and a half years
Dr. K. :

Ok, so its expired and not working

Customer: 5 and a half years
Dr. K. :

That certainly could explain the issues. The mirena is only effective/good for five years
