I am writing this because I have no idea what to about my mirena coil.
Whenever I have periods my mood is the worst, it is as though I take a running nose dive off of the tallest building right into solid rocks. In the past I have taken numerous contraception, pills, injection and now the mirena coil.
I haven't been able to find anything I get on with. I basically need something to stop my periods and therefore help my mood as when I do not have a period I am great. The pill worked well for a while but I started getting a lot of headaches so was told I couldn't take it anymore. After having my baby 6 months ago they suggested the coil.
I had it fitted just over a week ago and ever since I have bled, bright red strong unpleasant smelling blood, I am itching like crazy down there, cramping in right side and my mood is worse then ever. I have been back to the doctors and she said the odour is normal because its something to do with the hormones, it looks as though the coil is doing its job and stopping my bleeding (not sure where she is looking but I have been bleeding for over a week and still going) and the itching she said was caused by my sanitary towels (even though I've worn these one's for years and never had a problem) she said I have got to wait 6 months for it all to regulate out.
I have no idea what to do. It has got my mood to the point where I can't stand being a Mother, don't want to leave the house, binge eating again. The smell and itching is unbearable but do I chance it the 6 months and wait and see?
Sorry for the long rant just wanted to know others experience on the Mirena coil and how you found it
