Hi all new on here.
Try to keep this brief!
Been having ridiculous periods, pain on right side prior to period and ovulation and also pain when having sex during these times too. Had normal ultrasound showing nothing, GP tried to convince me laporscopy a bad idea and lots of risks and to just have the merina coil (currently have copper coil as when on hormone pill i felt like it really effected my sex drive, weight and mood so really keen to not be pumped with hormones). Been to see consultant today and again they was really pushing the merina rather than getting a diagnosis. They even said where have you seen all these side effects! I was like urm the leaflet you give out! They was like well they are not common they just have to tell u just in case and the hormones are only local within uterus.
I explained to them I was not willing to take hormones that effect me daily without a definite diagnosis. They agreed to do the laporscopy and a hysteroscopy.
Advise from anyone who has had these procedures?
They have to remove and replace my copper coil, anyone had an issue with this?
Anyone been happy with merina? Without nasty side effects?
What other treatments have you ladies tried and tested? Is the merina the only option?
