Hi ladies, I wanted to ask if anyone has had the experience of having the Mirena IUD and endometriosis growing back whilst being on this type of contraceptive? Is it possible for the endometriosis to grow back once surgically treated and on the IUD?
I was diagnosed with endometriosis and adenomyosis and told that the IUD would help - especially more so for the adeno pains and to also keep the endo at bay.
I had my second laparoscopy in January, where my gyne treated endometriosis and inserted the Mirena as long term treatment. Aside from the excruciating labour pains I’ve experienced (when I was meant to be having a period) the heavy bleeding has subsided - which is great and the actual period pains are becoming more bearable/manageable as the months pass. However, what’s creeping up is that deep dull constant ache all across my lower back, which I feel is like the endometriosis pain I once had? This time it’s way more intense and much more widely felt amongst my lower back (which was where I initially had the most lesions) than it was before my surgeries.
I’m also apprehensive to talk to my gyne (BSGE accredited btw) about this as he seemed very adamant that the endo has been lasered off and that it won’t need reviewing for a few years at least. I know I also have to wait six months before the coil properly settles but I’m in a lot of pain and that deep dull ache really is haunting (considering I haven’t had this for a good three months after my op). Can anyone relate/has had similar experiences? Advice much appreciated and I hope you are all safe.
