Hair loss and androgenic acne with Kyleena. Vivian’s Story

I had a Kyleena placed in July 2020. The first change was terrible androgenic acne… it devastated me to be going through what I had to endure as a teenager again! Then I noticed that my hair loss had become increasingly worrying.

At first, I did not attribute it to the IUD but after some research, realized that the hormonal changes I was going through were indeed the first and most logical culprit. I am ashamed to wear my hair down now. Between that and the acne, my self-esteem has plummeted… and the non-existent menstruation my doctor alluded to being a possibility… never happened. I now bleed every two weeks for at least 5 days. Needless to say, it is coming out this week. I cannot endure this any longer. I just hope that I can get my hair to regrow…
