Hello ladies, I hope you are all well?
I just thought I would write this post as I have mainly only seen negative posts about the Mirena coil.
Okay so 11 days ago I had a laparoscopy to remove endo, and I also had the Mirena coil fitted. I was very nervy about trying the Mirena as I've heard so many horror stories about it. In my experience i had not had a break on my pill for a year and 2 months due to the vile pain from endo especially during my period. I was told that 2 weeks before my surgery I was to stop taking my pill, but within those 2 weeks I didn't bleed, this worried me but the doctor said it was probably because I hadn't had a period for so long that the lining of my womb would be really thin. So, after surgery & having the Mirena fitted, I've bled for 3 days, that's it! Just 3 days and not bled since. I've had the period pain and cramps but no bleeding since, I'm still getting pain from where my endo has been removed and still uncomfortable but in all honesty, so far the Mirena has been pretty okay.
Don't always be put off by other people's stories as everyone is different and what may not work for someone else, may work for you.
I hope this will help some of you who are thinking about trying the Mirena, everyone is different xxx
