I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2015. I had a laparoscopy to remove adhesions and the Mirena coil inserted afterwards to deal with any further Endometriosis.
But the Mirena coil doesn't appear to be working. I am still having monthly periods (should these have gone away with the Mirena coil?) and in the last 2 months I have been having more pain in the area where the adhesions were removed.
So it looks like I will need to change the Mirena coil to something else. But I am nervous about doing so, because I suffer from chronic migraine (migraines every day) and any change in my hormones makes the migraines worse.
When I first started the Morena coil, the migraines were worse for about 6 months. If I understand correctly, then the coil only has a little bit of hormones in it, so I am worried about changing to something that has stronger hormones.
In the past my gynaecologist suggested provera but it even warns in the information leaflet about being careful with provera if a patient already suffers from migraines.
If anyone has any suggestions of something that can replace the coil but has minimal effect on migraines, I would be grateful to hear them.
