Hello everyone, I am due to have the Mirena today and I was horrified when I found several different sites with so many people talking about how the Mirena caused them to have bad breakouts and they were talking about having it removed because it was so bad. Well, this worries me greatly, because I am, unfortunately, susceptible to breakouts. I had it bad with the pregnancy and have spent a lot of money with a doctor in clearing my skin finally, and I just annot take the risk of it happening again. So, is there any truth to this? Has anyone had any problems with acne from Mirena especially if your already susceptible ? Thank you so much!

This is probably too late, but the Mirena website lists acne as a potential side effect...so even they claim it as a potential risk. You won't know how it will affect you personally unless you choose to risk it and find out. www.mirena.com

I had mine put in at the end of November and have not had MAJOR acne. I have had some minor breakouts but nothing that wouldn't happen on the pill. HTH!
