Thanks for writing in.

The only possible relation is Mirena (IUD) triggers your body in autoimmune state which is risk factor for developing avascular necrosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

If it is just a state, is it possible that the autoimmune symptoms could disapear? Or is autoimmunity permenant? Thanks!

Thanks for writing again.

Autoimmunity is permanent & it is not possible to eradicate it completely.

There are periods of remission in autoimmune disease & we can prolong it with immuno-modulator but can't eradicate it permanently.

Wishing you good health.
