I had the mirena coil inserted a month ago due to my excessive heavy bleeds during periods which led to blackouts and fainting incidents on more than one occasion. Having taken the advice of my gynaecologist, I opted to have it put in despite my reservations. I have not stopped bleeding since and after one month I feel like I want to rip it right out of my body. I am so exhausted and drained. It hasn't helped that I have started a new job and am working 11 and 12 hour days with this ongoing period, breasts so sore that I physically cry out with pain when I undress at night and numerous other side effects such as nausea, regular headaches, Complete lack of sex drive and general weakness I am just about ready to call it a day and ask for it to be removed. Has anybody else experienced anything like this? I feel very alone in my fight against this hidden illness right now.
