lbosmer Posted August 19, 2013 Share Posted August 19, 2013 I was wondering if any of you ladies had the Mirena IUD and what your experience has been... I got Mirena after the birth of my son (this was before I found Whole 30). I really didn't research it much before I got it inserted (if I had I wouldn't have gotten it) however, it sounded like a good idea to me at the time. I had it in for 2.5 years and after discovering a laundry list of nasty stuff I had it taken out. I have been learning about Estrogen "poisoning" than can happen after you have it removed. (Mirena secrets out fake progesterone and your own body stops making it because of the artificial progesterone faking your body out. When you have it taken out your body has no progesterone and high levels of estrogen) It can also cause silicone poisoning since the actual device is made from it. I've been reading about some cleanses that will detoxify you liver of the built up estrogen and will get rid of the silicone. What is Whole 30's stance on a "Cleanse" or "detox". Are there any recommended ones. Thoughts? Advice? Random comments? Please talk to me... Link to comment
