Hello,

Mirena generally does not cause such symptoms. Further evaluation into any underlying issues including hormonal problems, mental health issues need to be explored. So please follow up with your primary provider.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Lekshmi Rita Venugopal, General & Family Physician
