Hi, so I had a scan the other week in which the nurse giving me the scan told me that my right ovary looked polycystic and I had 2 cysts on my left ovary. I went back to my GP yesterday for her to tell me that she’s not 100% sure that I do have PCOS but evidence points that way. I’m now going back for another blood test and have one scheduled for 3 months time too and I’m getting a Mirena coil fitted next week. What are people’s experiences with coils and PCOS? I can’t take the combined pill which is normally recommended because it negatively affects my mental health, to which my GP replied with that there’s no hard evidence that the combined pill affects mental health as much as I’d described. All in all, I’m just needing some advice because I’ve been told the bare minimum about my body and I don’t know what I’m supposed to do next.

I get really intense cramps leaving me bed bound and my periods can get quite heavy as well as being very irregular. So my best option out of the two is the hormonal Mirena ius because the iud is known to cause heavier and more painful periods, so I’m hoping that the Mirena helps with how heavy I am and how painful it can be and help regulate me a bit better.
I’ve cut out dairy for almost a year now, it really doesn’t agree with me, I noticed a difference quite quickly once I’d stopped having it! Thank you for your reply, I’m feeling a lot better about getting the Mirena coil now, there’s been so many horror stories that it puts you off a bit but all these replies have helped
