Hi ladies, I've just found this forum and looking for some help. I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis all over my pelvis including my bladder and bowel after 8 years of investigations, dismissals and operations, a lot of which sadly continues in my health care. I was incredibly lucky to have a successful third attempt at IVF in 2013 and was blessed with beautiful boy/girl twins. I continue tonsured with awful pain and symptoms including joint pain. Last (and fourth!) lap was Dec 2014 where excursions were made and top layer of bowel removed. I had relief for three months and was on depo at this time. By the march symptoms returned and I tried mini pill, things continued to deteriorate and in July this year I had the mirena coil fitted with high hopes. Things have gotten steadily worse and now I've been told I'm almost out of options ( loving the positivity eh?!) and been prescribed 6 months of Decaptyl which if successful will lead to surgery to remove ovaries. My question after this huge story is have any of you been told it's ok to keep the coil in during this treatment? I've been assured it's fine but always thought you shouldn't have any contraception during the treatment? Please help before I go completely insane!
