I was prescribed Mirena around 3 months after the birth of my third child. 'Confounding factors' are often cited to women who have this IUD and are experiencing problems- recent pregnancy and postpartum are among 'confounding factors' (AKA other reasons your hair may be falling out). For me there was a very sudden and dramatic change in my body, and after ruling other potential factors out I was left with no doubt that I was experiencing side effects directly related to this IUD.
After having it removed my hair continued for the first 3-4 weeks. after that, it took another month for the hair to start growing back. It's coming back slowly, but it is coming back!
So don't lose hope.
