Time for a bit of a rant!! I’m 19 and have been undergoing tests for endometriosis for a while now. I recently had the mirena coil fitted with hope that it will reduce my pain (the consultant wouldn’t do a laparoscopy). I’ve had it in for over a week now and have had nothing but severe pain. I knew it was to be expected but I’m in pain 24/7 and the only time it stops is when I’m in the bath! I’ve phoned the hospital and explained to them and they said I have a tilted uterus (whatever that means!) so it is prone to falling out. When I went to check the strings (it didn’t take long, they were below my belt line) and I felt a harsh wire which I actually pricked my finger on (it bled) and I could only feel one string. Later on that day I tried to have sex (sorry if TMI) and my partner cut himself on it….
I rang the hospital and they said to go back to my GP to get her to check the strings (bearing in mind my GP was the one who said she did not feel comfortable fitting it on such a young person). I'm just at a loss! How long is this going to last?!
