Surgery and IUD

Surgery and IUD

I am having surgery to remove the scar tissue and while I am asleep, they want to put an IUD in as well. I am super nervous about the IUD and want to know if there are side effects, and if the IUD is a good route to go.

I had the mirena coil fitted in may this year during a laparoscopy for diagnosis and removal of endo, i was under anaesthetic and didn't feel a thing. I used to get very heavy periods for 8 years and extreme pain but since the coil, I only get an odd bit of spotting here and there, hardly any pain, and been told it will stop the return of the endometriosis while its in as its like tricking your body that your pregnant. Now I might get a bit of spotting but no actual period which has been a excellent but i always make sure i have a liner with me at all times just incase. Everyone's experience is a little bit different but hopefully yours will also be a success

If you have a history of Ovarian Cysts, be wary, as the IUD can increase your risk. Sort one problem, create another. Good luck with the surgery.

I had one put in during surgery and I was in agony for 6 weeks and no one took me seriously and thought I was being a drama queen. I couldn't get in to my surgeon and my doctor kept referring me back to her even though I couldn't get an appointment. Eventually and this is gross the whole thing came out wires and all when I was on the toilet literally wires hanging out of me! Bringing with it bits of tissue!!
My surgeon/gynaecologist still hasn't seen me and keep cancelling and rebooking appointment after appointment and not returning my calls.
I had my surgery in February and feel really let down by the nhs as Iv been in constant pain since !
