Hi all this is my first post.
I’ve had the mirena coil for the last 3 and a half years. I got this after being diagnosed with PCOS at an early age and not having much luck with the pill.
I am undergoing a huge period of consistent pain and now I’m in the process of going in for surgery to see if it is indeed endometriosis, as my last ultrasound scan showed no cysts on my ovaries.
For the last 4 weeks I’ve really struggled with thrush symptoms.
I went to my GP and he said to go the canesten duo. Didn’t ease. I then was given the 2% cream and the oral tablet. Which didn’t ease it.
I’ve been to the sexual health clinic and tests have been ran.
No thrush detected, no BV, no STI detected but I’m still struggling with burning and itching. No discharge changes but just incredibly uncomfortable.
I’ve read articles of the mirena coil being inserted and giving thrush symptoms early on. But can this happen after 3 and a half years?
With my increase in pain recently, I considered whether my coil was actually wearing off and so would that contribute to thrush symptoms?
Any advice or guidance would be amazing.
