IUD side effects
Before inserting an IUD, a doctor should make sure that the individual is aware of the potential side effects and risks, including the known side effects of particular brands.
Common IUD side effects include:
- irregular bleeding for several months
- lighter or shorter periods or no periods at all
- symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), which include headaches, nausea, breast tenderness, and skin blemishes
Rarer side effects of IUDs include:
- Expulsion, which is when the device comes out of the uterus by accident. If the IUD falls out of place, a doctor will have to re-implant it.
- Uterine perforation, where the IUD punctures the uterine wall. This can cause severe bleeding and result in infection.
- Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which may occur if the IUD insertion procedure introduces bacteria into the uterus.
The FDA have approved five IUD brands to date. One is a copper IUD called Paragard. The others are hormonal IUDs known as Kyleena, Liletta, Mirena, and Skyla. The side effects of each IUD type are listed below.
Kyleena side effects
Kyleena is a hormonal IUD. In addition to the common IUD side effects, Kyleena can cause:
- inflammation of the outer part of the vagina, called vulvovaginitis
- pelvic pain
- painful periods
- sore breasts
Kyleena may increase the risk of an ectopic pregnancy, which is a pregnancy that implants outside of the womb, usually in the fallopian tube.
An ectopic pregnancy is a medical emergency. Prompt treatment is vital to prevent severe bleeding and preserve fertility.
Liletta side effects
A Liletta IUD can also increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. People should call a doctor if they experience severe bleeding or abdominal pain with a Liletta IUD, as these signs could indicate an ectopic pregnancy.
Other potential side effects of a Liletta IUD include:
- irregular bleeding and spotting in the first 3–6 months
- ovarian cysts, which can cause pain and discomfort
Mirena side effects
Mirena is a hormonal IUD that releases the synthetic hormone progestin to prevent pregnancy.
Some of the symptoms that people often experience after Mirena placement include:
- pain, bleeding, and dizziness immediately after insertion, although these symptoms should usually go away within about 30 minutes
- missed or irregular periods
- bleeding more or less than usual during a period in the first 3–6 months
According to the manufacturer, an estimated 12 percent of women who use Mirena develop an ovarian cyst.
Skyla side effects
Side effects specific to Skyla may include:
- missed menstrual periods
- ovarian cysts
- risk of ectopic pregnancy if a woman becomes pregnant while using the IUD
According to the manufacturer, one in every 16 people will stop having menstrual periods after 1 year of using Skyla, while about 14 percent of people will develop an ovarian cyst.
Paragard side effects
Paragard IUDs do not secrete hormones. Instead, they have a copper coating that acts as a deterrent for sperm. However, they can still cause side effects, including:
- allergic reactions to the metal
- a backache
- feeling faint
- low blood counts
- menstrual-like cramping
- pain during sex
If a woman with this IUD thinks she is pregnant, she should call her doctor. If she is pregnant, the doctor will need to remove the IUD.
According to the manufacturer, pregnancy with a Paragard IUD in place can result in life-threatening complications.

Why You Should Not Drink While You Are Eating
As a law, no liquid should be taken with solids. Liquid tends to pass away immediately into the intestine, taking away all the digestive enzymes thus inhibiting digestion.
Liquids must be taken prior to a meal or one hour after it but not along with it. All toxic beverages like tea, coffee, alcohol, soft drinks are great hindrance to normal digestion. Gastric secretions are severely restricted in their presence. All fruit juices are passed faster than fruits into the intestine. Citrus fruit juices and lemon water brings down starch digestion creating severe gas and fermentation. It is better to have them alone and on an empty stomach.
Cause: Lack of the daily consumption of adequate amounts of water.

You can get a prescription from your Doctor for some of these symptoms and buy over the counter drugs for other symptoms. Or you could drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. Even after a week or two you will see a big difference in some of the symptoms others will take longer. Some symptoms may take up to six months depending on the severity.
If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms, write them down, take before pictures and try drinking 8-10 glasses of water per day. In two weeks, check your list and pictures to see if there are any improvements. When you first start, your body will sense the regular supply of water and will start to cleanse causing you to urinate more than regular and your urine will be cloudy. Eventually constant urination will subside and you will notice that your urine is clearing up. There are two main reasons you get the urge to urinate. 1. Full bladder which is normal. 2. toxicity, toxic urine will trigger the urge to urinate. You will not have a full bladder and you may wonder why you are only urinating a small amount. Your bladder is protecting you from infections. You should avoid holding your urine and eliminate urine when ever you get the urge.
