Hi
Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HCM virtual clinic!
Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully gone through your query, and I think I have understood your concern.
I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.

1.First of all do not panic.
2. Horseshoe shaped kidney is rare but not uncommon. If your renal function tests are normal, you need not worry about the same.
3. Please get urine routine and culture & sensitivity test done. This helps to know the exact infection causing organism and the most effective medicine.
4. As such your kidney issue and use of antibiotic has no effect on the working of Mirena.
The symptoms that you are getting can be due to PMS- premenstrual syndrome.
I will suggest you to seek prescription support from your treating doctor for long acting form of vitamin B6, Folic acid and vitamin B12 and vitamin E and Evening primrose oil, on daily basis for 3 months.
Please get it confirmed from your doctor that Mirena is in place ,every 6 months.

i hope this answer was helpful to you!
Thank you and best regards!
