I'm 24, I'm 8 months into waiting for a diagnostic laparoscopy.
I had the mirena coil fitted a month and a half ago, I've never done well with contraceptive methods but I figured anything to mean I can stop taking so many painkillers or at least stop with the codeine and tramadol. Although the pain is less frequent, majority of the time, it's worse. When it's there it's close to 9, and I haven't had it that bad since I had a cyst 6 years ago, on top of the pain I bled for 30 days and that only stopped because I've been having to take Medroxyprogesterone. The doctors have now said I probably have BV because of the amount of hormones.
I just want to be intimate with my partner, we were a month into our relationship when everything kicked off and this definitely ended the honeymoon phase fairly fast! But I've been wearing panty liners for almost two months so I don't bleed through or so my discharge doesn't soak through my pants!
Had anyone else had this kind of experience with the coil? I don't know what to do anymore, I'm comfort eating and crying every time someone asks me how I am! I have reached feeling pathetic.
