What causes breast tenderness and abdominal bloatinge when on Mirena IUD?

Hi, I have been on the mirena IUD for 3 years now, and the last 2 weeks I have had very tender breasts, my lower abdomen feels bloated, I have had nausea but it seems to only be at night, and recently smells have been making me so nauseated I can hardly keep down my recent meal.. I have also noticed some white vaginal discharge, and have been so tired lately I can hardly pull myself out of bed, and go about my day without wanting to lay down for a nap. I had some spotting about 3 weeks ago and figured it was just a light period, because I am irregular I also have frequent urination, so I thought I was getting a bladder infection but when I looked it up I have no symptoms other then frequent urination, no burning sensation, its not cloudy, no fever.. I m at a loss I took a pregnancy test just to be sure and it came out negative..

Hi,

The symptoms you mentioned are only related to the marine loop (IUCD). You need to visit a gynecologist so that he/she can do the complete examination and investigations. I suggest you take it off and try some other options like OCP’s or some protection.

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

Regards,
Dr. Naira Jahangir, OB and GYN Specialist

Hi,

On Tuesday I had an uncomfortable feeling in my stomach (like a buldge of gas was sitting right below by sternum). Since then I become constipated for a couple of days. On Friday my stools were really soft. Friday night and Saturday night I still feel that buldge in my stomach but I have been getting up 4 or 5 times to urinate in the middle of the night. On top of that I have gotten a cold (running nose, congestion, and a fever). I am more concerned about the feeling I have in my stomach and the frequent urination. Do you have any suggestions?

Hi, I am a 53-year-old male. I used to hold urine for long time in my childhood . In my adolescence, I experience infrequent urination which still persists. My hygiene is good. I did not eat on time for 3-4 years because of my job, sometimes once a day. I am masturbating since my adolescence till now. Still, I urinate frequently and have a tuna fish-like smell to it and my body smells the same. I did not go to doctor because of fear. My father was a diabetic.
