      Thank you for asking this question, it made me look into the connection between my IIH and Mirena coil. I had symptoms starting a few months after I had the IUD inserted and I've seen optometrists and ophthalmologists, neurologists, even been to emergency a couple of times from the symptoms and nobody mentioned this potential link or even asked if I used birth control. There's lawsuits about the mirena coil and IIH as well

      My biological sex is male so I don’t take birth control, but from what I know they’re known for increasing the intracranial pressure, as well as the morning-after pill
