  • I did not have a period for the entire year and a half I was on the Mirena. I never had the hair falling out thing though....but if I remember correctly, that was one of the side effects.

  • I dont know about the hair falling out but what I do know is a friend of mine was on the mirena and when her daughter was 2 months old she ended up pregnant again!
    I would go to your doctor about the hair falling out and good luck not getting pregnant on the mirena.

  • hair falling out is just your body adjusting from difference of not being preg i had the same thing it just went back to normal it can get thicker when you are pregnant... the mirena is different for everyone.. just take a test if you are afraid and maybe have your doctor check on it but you are probobly fine.. i had a small period after getting it then didnt get one for months
