I am so glad to have found this web site. I felt like I was going mad! Thank you to all the people who take the time to to post mail on here it has really helped.
My dilema is do i have it out before i get married in August.
I have had alot of the SIDE EFFECTS (doctors don't agree) that most people have. My lastest is bad lower back pain where I was tkane to the hopstial because I could support my own weight. This feeling happened three time. They done lots of tests and came up with no answers other than "ITS NOT THE MIRENA COIL". I was sent home with pain killers.
Other symptoms I have been told I have that again supposedly have nothing to do with the coil are:
IBS (irritable bowl)
abdominal pain (right side all the time)
No sexual feelings at all (like my body has closed down)
No energy or get up and go
Feeling sick each morning
Lumps in breast (sent to breast clinic, very scary)
Each time I have gone to the doctor they send me to the hopsial if necessary and they disagnose something different or say they are not sure and give you pain killers etc.
I am very lucky i have an understanding parntner as i think we would have split up otherwise.
What I don't understand is if so many people have got the same side effects and also have the same Contraceptive, then why don't they do more investigations on the side efects.
I still have alot of the above side effects, at the moment back is the worst, but am worried that I may get worse before I get better if I have the coil out before I get married.
Has anyone felt worse after having it out and how long did it last?
Any comments welcome
