After having no or very light periods while on the depo injection (I was taken off it due to having osteopenia) and the implant I started to get constant bleeding. After trying different pills none of which were having any effect, along with endless pregnancy and STI checks all of which were clear I was referred to gyne. They tried me on tranexamic and mefenamic acid which had no effect. So they insisted a mirena coil would be the best treatment, on inserting it they found I had adhesion and bicornate uterus but fitted it anyway. I then started to experience left sided lower abdo/groin pain and my symptoms got worse. After a lot of persistence with my GP and consultant (who discharged me) I eventually went to A and E and had to have emergency open abdo surgery to remove the mirena coil from my groin. Since then I have had constant pain in my lower left abdo /groin and practically constant bleeding. Norethisterone stops the bleeding but not the pain, it has terrible side effects and cant be taken long term. The consultant basically said live it or have a hysterectomy which I dont see an option as I want a family and am only 31. And find it very difficult to believe that they isnt something else I can do. HELP!!!
