I've had my Mirena for almost 2 months now. Before the Mirena my pain came in two week cycles, it would start a week before my period and then throughout my period and I'd have two weeks free from it and then it'd be back. But now I'm not having periods because of the Mirena which is good because most of the pain is gone, in fact all of the pain I experienced before has gone. My pain now is different. It's still in two week cycles and I think it is still associated with when I would have had my period because I still get emotional and flu-like. I get pain on my left side, where my ovary would be and it shoots right through my cervix and well..out, if that makes sense. Is this endo pain or do you think it could be something else?
About a month ago I was taken to A&E because I couldn't walk. The pain in my right thigh was so bad, I get this with endo, I felt flu-like, my temperature was 38.9, and I was just a wreck. They put it down to a slight kidney infection but I disagreed, my pain was severe and similar to my endo pain. I said I thought it was to do with my coil and they just dismissed it. Now that I'm starting to feel ill again and getting pain I'm scared that all of that is going to happen again.
Anyone had a similar experience? Or noticed any changes when they got the Mirena?
I'm fed up at the minute, waiting for my first diagnostic lap.
