Hi all, I got the Mirena coil almost 10 months ago and although it eventually stopped my periods I regularly get severe pain (similar to my horrific period pains). Is this normal?
I did have a laparoscopy 3 years ago and they lasered away the endometriosis then but the pain never improved. Just curious what are other people’s experiences have been? Thanks, Paula

Ive been using the mirena coil for about 7 years now. I am only just getting help from my GP now for endo.
I have always had periods even with the coil and the pain has got worse and worse over the years. So it definitely hasn't helped at all for me! It may have masked the pain possibly but not anymore. I still get excruciating pain every period. I'm now on a pill aswell as the coil to try and stop periods all together.

Hi there @RebeccaJohnston, Thank you greatly for taking the time to chime in to share your experience with Mirena. I have had Mirena for just over 5 years & am due to have it removed next month. I am not sure what to do! I just hate the thought of getting another IUD. Mirena did help the first few years, but not so much any more. Do you mind me asking what pill you are also taking? Taking that in addition to having the Mirena has not helped? My Ob/Gyn also prescribed a BC pill as well, but I have not taken it. She also mentioned trying Kyleena once the Mirena is removed. My next steps, as I have been saying for months now, but have not yet incorporated, are dietary changes & incorporating supplements/vitamins.
Thanks again for joining in on this topic & I sure hope you find the relief you so deserve! Hugs.
