Hey all, I'm not sure if anyone could advise me here but I'm not sure where else to go..
I'm wondering what your responses have been to the Mirena coil?
I've had every NHS recommended contraceptive pill, injection, implant - I even had the Mirena coil but it came out* about 3 days after it was fitted. Apart from the Mirena coil, I've tried each of these contraceptive methods for at least 9 months (it was for contraception, I didn't know I could have had endometriosis at the time) and I just bleed or spot continuously, lose and gain weight, mood swing - generally don't feel anything like my happy self! I tried microgynon, stopped taking it after about 2 weeks because I got full-on migraines one after the other, the whole time. I don't think my body is okay with me messing with it's hormone levels - it was torture on so many levels, putting myself through years of trying different methods but with no luck.
* "came out" is a huge understatement for the hours of pain and misery that tiny thing forcing it's way out of me caused!
I was diagnosed with endometriosis last October, I'm 23 and I don't want children. My doctor recommends I try the Mirena coil to stop my periods. After the reactions I've had and explained to previous contraceptive drugs, I just don't know what to do. Obviously I was willing to try the Mirena coil but now I'm so unsure whether or not to have it fitted and try again... if anyone has had similar experiences or tried the Mirena coil, please let me know what you think of the Mirena coil and it's effectiveness in stopping periods/helping endo.
