Constipation is not typically from an IUD

It can be from your IBS

What is your question exactly?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Is this normal basically is the question. I know that that it doesn't cause constipation but the hormones, could they be throwing out all levels in the body? I am going to have to go get examined. I am also having discomfort in that it feels like there is inflammation as well. Not sure if this is a pelvic infection as well or IBS inflammation
OB GYN Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

Yes, of course you can';t tell that without exam.

No it is not normal.

This would be vary unusual side effects.

Possible but not normal.

I suggest you have a TSH level run. This is an indication of thyroid function. If over 2.5, then this hormone can be involved.

And this will affect other hormones as well.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
