Mirena

Posted by @roberta4306, Sun, Sep 9 8:39pm

Ive had the mirena iud two times. I had no issues the first time. This time I’m having issues with UTI and yeast infections. I only have these issues when in sexually active with my partner. He’s the only person I’m with and I’ve been with him for 13 years. I’m trying to figure out why I’m having these issues. Any help would be welcomed.

Hi Roberta, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Sorry to hear you are having to deal with this.

Has something changed with the iud? You should ask your doctor if the formula changed. I'm interested in following up with you- I hope you will reach out to your physician and come back to let us know what he says.

Hi, @roberta4306 – I wanted to add my welcome to @jamienolson's. I'm sorry you keep having these infections – I know from my own experiences that those are not fun.

Here is some Mayo Clinic information on Mirena (hormonal IUD). https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/mirena/about/pac-20391354. I'm not seeing yeast infections or UTI mentioned specifically. However, I did note it talks about contacting your healthcare provider immediately if you experience unusual or foul-smelling vaginal discharge. So, I'd second what Jamie said about reaching out to your doctor.

@kdubois has talked about the Mirena IUD, and I'm hoping she may have some thoughts for you. I'm also inviting @travelgirl to see if she may have any insights on your IUD and the infections that you've experienced.

Would you have any time today or tomorrow to call or message your doctor?

My gynecologist works in 3 different counties and a hospital. I spoke her previously and she said she would get my information from my regular doctor. Unfortunately, every time i make an appointment, they either cancel on me or it takes approximately two months to get in and at that point I don't have a yeast infection. In my area, the office who places the mirena, is the person I have to discuss it with for some safety reason incase it needs to be removed. They say her office is the one whom has to remove it unless her office goes out of business or if it gets dislodge. Then another doctor can. Its putting a stain on my relationship and the yeast infections are very uncomfortable. I have purchased monostat and treated him and myself thinking maybe he's passing it back to me but I still have them. I recently had a pap smear at my health department and it came back negative except it stated i have a yeast infection but i didn't show actually signs for almost two weeks. Its all confusing for me and I'm trying to find out how to prevent the infections.

Hi, @roberta4306 – wondering how things are going and whether you are still experiencing urinary tract and yeast infections?
