meg09002 :  ovarian cysts are extremely common with iuds. I had mirena and had complex cysts in both ovaries about 3 years in, they went away on their own.

Were you on the BC pill before? Often, women who were on the pill or other hormonal BC that switch to Mirean/Skyla ( I have Mirena) think the IUD causes them, but it’s actually the low dose of hormones that’s letting the cysts form.

BC pills have a higher level of hormones in them which is used to control and minimize cysts. When you switch to an IUD, those hormone levels are drastically lower.

I have had cysts come up even on BC pills because I have PCOS and possible endo. Definitley do notice the cysts more, but manageable.
