Hi, just wondering if anyone has experience of developing a painful ovarian cyst, with the Mirena coil in?
I needed a trans vaginal ultrasound today, to check the location of my Mirena coil, which was placed during surgery for endometriosis. I was concerned the Mirena was causing me new increased pain from 5 weeks post op. It also caused frequent bleeding / spotting (3 periods in 6 weeks). Not sure if it also affected my mood / emotions. However I’ve never suffered with ovarian cysts in the past, and one was found today. The pain intensity is varying but needing pain relief. At its worse I need codeine (not tolerating NSAIDS) and can barely walk. I will be getting a follow up scan in due course.
Just wondering about other peoples experiences of this? How long did it go on for? Any advice on living with it?
