Customer Question

I had been on yasmin for 5 years. I got a mirena inserted in Oct 2015, got it checked 6 weeks later and was still in correctly. I came off yasmin once the checkup confirmed it in place. I had a period every 28 days (bit lighter, from 5-7 days in length, bit of cramping). I went back in Feb to have it checked as was getting ovulation pains on left ovary (the strings were cut too short to check myself but was ok). I had a period on Mar 20th.

mirena often causes a hormonal imbalance which can lead to symptoms like that. Also ovarian cysts can occur, onesided pain like you mentioned can be the result. Nevertheless the contraception effect is very reliable so that I don´t suppose gravidity.

Examination by your OB/GYN will give you certainty.
