In this day and age, population is growing arithmetically. With this burden, different institutions around the world invented and created varieties of medications and treatments that will help prevent pregnancy. The most common thing used are the pills. However, the way it is being taken is a hard task because one needs to take the pill on a regular basis. Another contraceptive endorsed is the mirena or the intrauterine device (IUD). Mirena as compared to pills is more convenient because once implanted the woman need not take pills. These mentioned contraceptives are said to be effective however, it has unintended side- effects to other parts of the body.
Mirena is a type of a long-term birth control. This is usually a T-shaped device that is being implanted in the uterus. Mirena has medical contents that release very low doses of a progestin hormone called Levonorgestrel that will prevent the mother from getting pregnant. Mirena or IUD is a very sensitive procedure because it is done in a medical facility with the aid of a surgeon. Aside from preventing pregnancy, it will help slow menstrual bleeding because it makes the uterine thinner causing it to produce lower blood counts. Despite its effectiveness, the device may also impart dangers, life- threatening side effects and pregnancy that occur outside the uterus. A non- life threatening effect is that it can boost hair growth. Hair growth can be beneficial but loss of hair is a problem. Losing hair is stressful and embarrassing most especially when it is losing in a large amount. With mirena, this can still continue because of some hormonal imbalances. For some, with the removal of mirena, this can stop and regain hair growth but sometimes this may be cause by other factors other than mirena. Mirena side effects hair loss, depends on the person’s body and hormones.
One must note that before using any product, he or she must have full knowledge about it. Sometimes this can be beneficial but oftentimes they may inflict pain or danger to our health. In the case of Mirena, one of its many side effects is hair loss. When this persists, one must consult her doctor for proper prescription and so that the mirena and the medicine taken are compatible and safe. It is really unavoidable but one must note that there are other things that can be done. One may seek for natural birth control which is safe and cheap. A woman can also opt to have to manage her time and abstain from having sex during her fertile days if she does not want to get pregnant.
