Hope someone can help and give some advice from their own experiences as I find a lot of info on here really helpful.
After having surgery last May to remove my left ovary, I was put on prostap injections for 6 months.
Last November, my gynae then inserted the mirena coil advising me that it was best to have it done before the prostap injections wore off completely.
Everything was fine at first (except for severe bloating and weight gain) but now the prostap injections have worn off I seem to be having periods every two weeks, which last quite a long time so I am bleeding more than I'm not at the moment.
My periods are lighter than they were post op, but I can't work out if this is due to the mirena or because I had my ovary and most of the endo including a very large chocolate cyst removed.
5 months since having the mirena coil, I am now considering trying life without it. Since having it, I am quite uncomfortable down below and can sometimes feel a sharp pain. I also need to pee an awful lot as if there is pressure in that area. My back also aches and I often feel nauseous and dizzy.
Therefore, I don't feel much better than I did before! If I'm going to bleed most of the month, aren't my chances of endo coming back just as high as if I didn't have the coil?
Any experiences shared will be greatly appreciated, as I don't want to take it out and my endo to come back with a vengeance. Yet I also don't want to keep it in, feel depressed due to weight gain and be uncomfortable to the point where it hurts if I press gently if it's not going to make much difference to my endo anyway.
Thanks very much
