Hello ladies, I hope you’re having a ‘good’ endo day! Just after abit of advice/experience. I’ve had suspected endo but no lap/official diagnosis. Pretty bad symptoms. Was put on mini pill, which elliviated them somewhat but nowhere near enough, and I stopped taking the mini pill a week ago when I realised I was depressed. Lots of family history of depression but it’s the first time I’ve suffered. I didn’t realise how much it was affecting me until my friend made a comment that made me think. I’d not been wanting to leave the house, brush my hair, extremely irritable and anxious crying at the drop of a hat because small things felt like the end of the world. My anger went through the roof top and I could see it I just had no control. I stopped taking the pill and it’s been a week-I feel like myself again thank god. Symptoms of endo creeping back already too though. I’m due to have the mirena insertion on Friday. My GP said I basically have to try that before anyone will do anything else for me. I’m just now concerned that as it has the same active ingredient (albeit not as strong and more localised) as the pill that it could have the same effect on me. GP does not yet know I stopped the mini pill, obviously I will explain to her why etc when I go.
Has anyone else been in the same situation or had mental health issues with the mirena/pill?
Thanks ladies xxx
