Issues after having mirena coil removed

I had the mirena coil in for nearly 2 years when it started to become uncomfortable. I had it removed last summer, nearly a year ago now. Firstly, having it removed was horrendous. It got stuck and the nurse just yanked. I felt like my innards were coming out she said that was normal. I was generally paralyzed in pain for at least 2 mins on the table. Nearly a year on and I'm still having lots of aching and pains. My periods are getting heavier, more painful and are affecting my mental health in a big way. Sex is still quite uncomfortable, and I have also been trying for a baby to no avail as of yet. Is all of this linked? The Drs just tell me it's all normal.

Any advise or own stories welcome :)

Tyi! X

Dear Bonbon,

Sorry to hear you're going through this. Sounds like you've been having a very difficult time this past year since the Mirena was removed. Can I ask if the IUS was put in for a gynaecological reason (e.g. fibroids, heavy periods, etc), for contraception or both?

If the Mirena was used to control or treat a gynae condition, it will often 'play up' when the IUS is removed. So IMHO I don't think the Mirena is to blame for your current issues; the painful sex, heavy periods and difficulty with conception may be from the underlying gynaecological problem/s.

I know it's difficult at this time to see your GP, but it sounds like you'll need to persuade them to refer you for a gynae assessment once lockdown restrictions are eased.
