Has anyone else had cysts since having the merina? I haven’t had any before but since having the merina have had to have one removed that was grapefruit sized- I’ve read on another page about the 2 being linked.....thoughts?
I was recently taken off the depo shot 6 months ago and put on a birth control that you take blue pills 3 months straight and the sugar pills for one week at the end of the cycle. Not sure if I should go back to the doctor and discuss different treatment or not because last time I went, my doctor told me surgery would be the other option. I am trying not to go that route, but the pain gets almost unbearable.
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 excision two years ago, trialled various versions of the combined pill unsuccessfully and have managed pain for a year via changes in diet, physiotherapy and accupunture. I am in a good place with my pain management finally after may years of struggle. My specialist has recommended the Mirena as a long term solution for endo regrowth. However, my research reveals evidence for this is inconclusive. I trust my specialist but worry about the Mirena's effectiveness (she mentioned Skyla… read more
Has anyone tried Mirena and not felt any relief? It's been a few months and I feel very little, if any, relief and my loss of appetite and nausea is spiraling out on top of the pain! I recently had a baby (in January) so not sure if it's all dramatically worse from that or if the Mirena is really just not working for me?
Hi just wondering if anyone as had endo grow back whilst using mirena?
I'm new to endo although i would of had it for years as always had sympto ms I only got diagnosed March last year.

Hi Ladies. PLEASE HELP! I recently moved to South Korea (from America) and went to a specialist for the first time today. He recommended I start taking Visanne. I really didn't want to take any new meds, as I already have tried Lupron, Femara (usually used for breast cancer), just norethindrone, and some other bc pills.I already had 2 excision surgeries. I also currently have the Mirena IUD. I don't want to try a new treatment but he kept telling me how great and wonderful Visanne is. I am so… read more
I am due to have my Mirena Coil removed on the next Monday coming, and was wondering if anyone had found they had symptom relief from having it removed? Or did it make things worse? My thought is that if I have it removed and I become hormone free will it stop my pains getting worse etc...
My doctor at school suggested that one but my doctor back home said it's only good for people who've have children. Anyone have experience with the mirena?
Has anyone used Kyleena after a laproscopy? My doctor recommended hormonal treatment after surgery that I'm having soon. I've never used hormonal birth control and I've read some scary stuff about it in terms of side effects and such. Has anyone used Kyleena after laproscopy to treat endo? I’ve seen that kyleena is pretty similar to Mirena but doesn’t treat heavy bleeding? My GP is confused by this but my gyno said it’s better for me because I’m younger (20) but I experience an extremely heavy… read more
