Hi, I have had the mirena coil for almost 3 years, since insertion I have 2 week long HEAVY periods a month (2 weeks on 2 weeks off) and over the last 8 months the 2 weeks that I’m not bleeding I suffer from recurring thrush. Has any one experienced this?
I want to remove it but I’m cautious as Doctors say it’s the only thing that is possibly slowing my Endo growth (how can it be if I’m bleeding every 2 weeks for 2 weeks?)
If anyone is interested here’s a quick recap of how I got to this point. I was diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis 4 years ago, since then I’ve had 2 endomtriomas on left ovary (1 was 10cm and grew to 15cm overnight), 1 hystoscopy, 1 6 month course of prostap, 1 6 month course of zoladex, 3 operations (1 of which removed my left ovary) On my last op my Gyne thought I’d had several C sections due to the amount of adhesions he found and was shock when I said I haven’t had any children!
Any help or advise would be gratefully received.
