    im sorry to read this, and hear the mirena is giving you pain. I had one fitted to reduce heavy periods, but i had a very poor response to it. Heightened anxiety, jittery, emotional and constant low level achy pelvic pain, as well as constant spotting. My gyno said to stick it out for six months for things to settle, but i only got to four months and begged to have it removed by another gp. I felt like a failure as so many of my friends have had no problems at all, but the gp said some women are more sensitive to the synthetic progesterone in the mirena.

    Interesting, this mirena coil, not a common practice in the U.S. I'd never heard of it before, and had to look it up. I guess it's like an IUD...

    I was continuing to take my birth control pills, too, even though I think I'm beyond being able to conceive, to try and regulate my hormones. My hot flashes were better, actually, when I was still taking the pill. I've quit taking those - it didn't seem natural, and am hoping that HRT (while equally unnatural) will be effective for me.
