Hello,

Mirena and herpes does not have any relation based on evidence studies. Hormonal changes, like those that occur in the menstrual cycle, can affect genital herpes outbreaks. Surgery, weak immune system can also influence in herpes outbreaks.

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

Regards,
