Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing ok and seeing some kind of summer.
I have a few things that I'm experiencing that would be good to hear from people with similar experience.
So, I had the operation 5 weeks ago and had the Mirena coil fitted. Recovery was pretty slow, but by last week I was physically back to normal.
The pain has been very bad though, take you breath away cramps and pain around the stitches. I've also been bleeding light to moderate amounts for the whole time, which I know is normal for some people.
The thing that has really struck me though is my mood. I feel completely crazy. Screaming rows with my partner, unexplained low spells, 0 patience for anything and constantly hungry. I feel unable to experience emotions and feel like I am no longer in love with my partner, which just doesn't seem right. I've just had my first holiday in 5 years and it's been overshadowed by me being a gremlin.
Has anyone else experienced these things?
I have my follow up in a month and I'm really tempted to ask to have the coil removed. I wasn't the most emotionally stable person to begin with, having suffered depression for years, but this seems much more extreme. I would rather have the pain of endo than ruin my relationship and risk alienating myself from other people.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
