Mirena coil

Hello ladies,

Quick background.. I'm 20 and got diagnosed 4 years ago after being admitted to hospital 3 times in 4 months with suspected appendicitis. I started off on the pill back to back for treatment and that stopped working after 2 1/2 years and my pain got unbearable again. I've had 2 laps to remove endo and then I've been on zoladex for the past 12 months which was amazing. It really dulled my pain and I didn't suffer from all the affects of zoladex either such as hot flushes. Unfortunately you're not allowed on zoladex for longer than 12 months as it weakens your bones. So I'm back to square 1. My gynaecologist suggested that I go on the mirena coil. My next appointment with her is in june and she said she will fit it there and then if I want it but in the meantime I'm on no treatment. Has anyone had this and had good/bad experiences from it? I'm getting a bit scared now as my zoladex injection ran out on feb 18th and I've still not come on my period, I know it takes a while for it to leave completely, I've had all the pain just no blood and I'm going on holiday in a week!

Thank you ladies!
