Last week at my Gynae appointment, where I had a cervical polyp removed, I was offered the Mirena coil for Endometriosis. I'm struggling to make a decision. If it would help with the pain I would love to have it. However, I am very anxious about having it placed in my uterus. I had a coil fitted many years ago and felt awful afterwards.
There's a few issues I have. I experience hormonal migraines (for up to 10 days in a row). WIll it help them or make them worse? Having the polyp removed has caused a local flare up. I'm in a lot more pain than usual. Having the coil placed is far more aggressive than having a polyp removed. Will I be able to deal with the pain of it being inserted and the initial symptoms of local inflammation. In both my pregnancies I was admitted to hospital with early contractions as my uterus does a brilliant job at trying to expel what is in it. This makes me wander if it is even worth trying.
I don't want to give up on the offer of being in less pain. But, I don't want to make any of my symptoms worse. I would be very grateful to hear your experience with the mirena coil and how it affected your symptoms. Thank you.
