I have had the Mirena since December 2016 and have started suffering alot of hip pain. I have googled and come across quite a few people with the same symptoms.

Has anyone else had any hip issues?

The pain is getting worse despite having physio and xray has ruled out any other issues.

Besides the hip pain and initial spotting for over 6 months I don't have any other issues with it and would be quite happy to stay on it.

I am at the point where the hip pain is so chronic and I am suffering daily with it that its worth a try to take out the Mirena to see if it resolves but just trying to gather info to see if it really is linked before I take the plunge.

I used to have a Mirena and have hip pain, but my Mirena has been out now for over a year and I still have the pain. Mine is due to Bursitis and I also have some issues with my back.

Have you had an ultrasound and x-ray of the hip? That should give you some information about what you're dealing with and how to proceed.

I had a mirena for 4 years and didn't experience any hip pain. I had a quick look at the prescriber information, and hip pain isn't listed as one of the reported adverse effects (although back pain was common in some clinical trials) or in the post market data.

Do your doctor/physio have any other ideas as to the cause of the pain?

I've only had mine 3 weeks but I'm already unhappy with the lower back and hip pain, and restlessness, I think it's causing. Usually I have that kind of thing for maybe the first day of my period. I'm hoping it settles down -and the pms grumpiness - because I want to like it.

Far out man, I will be following this. I had mine in a couple of months ago and have had hip pain ever since - it never occurred to me that they might be related.
