I really hope someone can shed some light on what is going on in my body right now. I'll be as brief as poss.
Had the mirena fitted on May 1st as all other contraception gives me migraines so was told that this is the one for me. I've had 2 kids and wanted something that I didn't have to worry about. Sounded ideal......
Periods still there, migraines improved but it seemed ok!
I suddenly bloated out, I haven't weighed but Im guessing I've gained around 1.5st lkg at me. My family say that they've never seen me this big and I'm not eating half of the amount because of my illness. Libido has gone, moody, tearful, hair loss, migraines back but worse than before, awful bloating & cramping, bleed all the time, sinus problems, lumps under armpits, spots, backache, painful breasts constantly, the list goes on....
I've been to the docs about the above and we've put it down to the uc & been on a plethora of drugs for it but nothing's working. I reserched the coil last night (light bulb moment!) & there it all was! Doc never told me any of the side effects infact quite the opposite.
I've booked an app for tomorrow with my gp to ask for it to be removed as I now believe that it's this causing the problems and not my uc. I've had enough of hormones so now over to my husband I think - snip snip!!
Just wondered if my symptoms above could be that of the mirena coil? Do u think the gp will remove it tomorrow or do I have to make a special app? I've also read about the 'crash' is this true?
Hate this bloody thing and can't wait to have my life back!
Thanks for reading!
