What Are Other People's Experiences With Mirena?

What Are Other People's Experiences With Mirena?

I'm going into hospital tomorrow to get the Merina put in. I've been living with chronic pain for almost 3 years and this is the last alternate treatment i have before a laporoscopy - that would mean checking for endo and if nothing is there, undiagnosible pain.

The mirena was great for the 5 years i has it. Very light periods etc. having it removed was supposed to be simple. Fast forward 2 days later I was rushed to the hospital bc i was hemorrhaging. The back of the ambulance looked like something from a horror movie. It was literally pouring off the stretcher. They gave me injection of birth control and several other bc pills to try and halt the bleeding. I was given iv fluids and iron and monitored. The dr came in and said if it didn’t stop or slow within 24 hours they were going to do a blood transfusion. Thank God it slowed up a lot. Scary! I said right then, never again.

Mirena isn’t perfect, but it’s done a lot of good for me with endo and PCOS. Relax when they put it in 😊

Hey, Ive had the same issue for years, i had a laporoscopy done to search for endo too but nothing was shown and also had the marina put in the same time i had the surgery. Marina wasnt for me as it came out on its own, but everybodys body's different!, wishing you all the best of luck :)
