Mirena and constipation?
I had a successful and simple Mirena insertion last Wednesday, 3/18. Since then, though, I've been constipated. Painfully constipated. I haven't ever been constipated before, so it's not something regular for me. The only thing I can figure out is the Mirena causing it. I googled "mirena and constipation" and found some frightening accounts of endless constipation; I thought I would come here for some possible input.
I am going to be sure my fiber intake is in the mid-to-high range via my diet, and I plan to start taking fiber supplements. Any other thoughts? I would really hate to have unmanageable digestive issues and have to give up my IUD.
Thanks so much!
