Hi all I've posted a couple of times before and really could do with some advice. I'm 33 years old ( married with 2 kids). I had surgery in feb for moderate endometriosis and developed a dvt in my left thigh whilst in recovery. I am due to come off warfarin in August then will see a hematologist to make sure there is no clotting disorders etc. I was advised at my 6 week post op check to have a mirena coil fitted to help stop the endo growing back but also for contraception as I'm no longer allowed the combined pill. I went along to the family planning clinic who informed me I wasn't suitable for mirena due to the risk of bleeding so they gave me 3 months supply of the mini pill. So I went home to start taking it and read the information leaflet which states I'm big bold writing DO NOT TAKE IF YOU HAVE A DVT!!! Now I am at a total loss as what to do as I I'm petrified of something else going wrong. I feel that the health professionals are letting me down as I'm always getting conflicting advice! Any help would be much appreciated x
