Hello, I for the last 4 years have suffered with constant stomachs cramps lower back pain and pain in the hip and left leg, I have got pelvic inflammatory disease at least 4 times and have been treated with antibiotics for it, I have very heavy periods and bleed 2-3 times a month, I was on the mini pill after I had my son nearly 12 months ago but as was still bleeding found it pointless being on! I went for a scan I'm August and it showed the lining in my uterus as being quite thick after I had a period, I went for a appointment with a gynaecologist on Wednesday and she said it could be endometriosis because I have pain during sex as well! She has told me to go and get the mirena coil put in straight away and see if that helps do my symptoms sound like endometriosis and if they do has anyone had the mirena coil and found it helped, I mean it produces progesterone just like the mini pill so I'm abit reluctant at the minute whether it will help! Sorry for babbling on just need some advice! X
