I was just diagnosed with PCOS in August & was told it is the leading cause of female infertility. So I'm wondering who else suffers from this unfortunate disorder. It might feel a bit better knowing that we aren't dealing with this alone.

This! Mommy-2-Three is 100% correct here ladies. And, even though it's known to some to cause the symptoms to flare up, it's also been known to help others control the symptoms. Those not TTC of course. 

Quoting -Mommy-2-Three-:

 Mirena is known to cause PCOS symptoms to flare up, however it can not cause PCOS!

Quoting TattdMomOf2Boys:

So the mirena can cause PCOS??? That makes so much sense now!! I never had any of these problems til I had the mirena put in. It has been out over 2 years and my cycles are so screwed up.

Quoting beadfairy:

I was diagnosed this summer. I had all kinds of fertility testing before conceiving my first and had NO signs of it...I developed it while I had a Mirena in. I'm hoping it is something that will go away as quickly as it came. :( Sounds silly, but I'd do anything to make it go away. lol
