Im 22 year olds, 5ft2, 125lbs, no children. I recently had the mirena coil fitted, and it hurt like HELL! On first attempt it became dislodged so my gp had to make a second attempt at fitting it, with a local gel anaesthetic. 2nd attempt was successful though it left me very woozy and nauseas, the pain was almost unbearable. I got home and went straight to bed, 6 hours+ of awful cramping. I feel quite bloated atm, and Im really worried after reading all of these negative comments. Im an absolute fitness freak and would hate to gain 10lbs, nevermind 10kilos.. Ive had endometriosis for quite a long time, very heavy, very painful, long periods. After trying a laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, the implanon, several types of pills, Im beginning to fear that this may be my last try at living a normal life. Can anyone please give me some info on the mirena if you have/have had endo? Anything at all would put my mind at rest right now... Thanks ladies!
I'm not sure why your Dr would want to use Mirena. Did he tell you that it is not recommended for use in women who havent had at least one child? The FDA has not approved it for use in women who havent had at least one child. Did he do an ultrasound to be sure he got the placement correct? You should have an ultrasound to make sure that the placement is correct. It is possible to perforate the uterine wall in some cases. You may want to go to the local ER and have them do an ultrasound to check placement if he didnt do one before you left the office.
sammie22xoxo- I am having the same issues with endometriosis... I have had three laparoscopy surgeries in the past year to help and nothing seems to subside the pain, they recommended the mirena IUD because of it not having estrogen I saw you posted in March and was wondering if the pain has subsided/if you had any weight gain. I am also very worried about it and also about the pain with not having any children! Let me know thak you so much
