Hello I for the past 4 years have constant stomachs cramps and lower back pain and pain in my hips and legs, feel tired a lot, sometimes the pain makes me feel nauseated, I have pain during sex I bleed very heavy up to 2-3 times per month, I have had pelvic inflatoy disease around 4 times and have been treated with antibiotics, but never had any further investigations! I stopped bleeding in May for 2 months so doctor send me for a scan as I was bleeding very heavily again, and it showed the lining of my uterus was very thick after a period I was them referred to a gynaecologist and she thinks I may have endometriosis and had told me to have the mirena coil put in first of all to see if that relieves any of the symptoms as laparascopy is risky she said? More so where I have had caseran as well with my son! Do my symptoms sound like endo? And has anyone else had the coil and it is helped? Only because I've been on the mini pill before and that produces progesterone just like the mirena! Any thoughts would be helpful, it's frustrating constantly being in pain and not knowing what it is!
