If you’ve had the Mirena IUD implanted, there are some things you should know – Mirena has been associated with device migration, organ perforation and now, pseudotumor cerebri (false brain tumors). Pseudotumor cerebri, or PTC for short, can cause vision issues, Intracranial Hypertension, dizziness and/or ringing in the ears.

Mirena is an IUD that releases levonorgestrel, a hormonal medication to prevent pregnancy. Mirena has been linked to an increased level of cerebrospinal fluid in the skull; this causes pseudotumor cerebri. It’s called a pseudotumor because the extra fluid in the skull increases pressure and makes it seem like the patient has a brain tumor.

Merina is manufactured by Bayer. The Mirena prescribing packet insert or labeling does not warn of the risk of pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) despite the known association between Mirena and PTC. If you suffer from any of the symptoms below, it is important to let your physician know. Some women have experienced these symptoms more intensely when exercising or exerting more energy, as exertion naturally raises pressure in the head.

Mirena can cause symptoms of pseudotumor cerebri (false brain tumor), which include the following:

  • Intracranial Hypertension
