PCOS And Mirena Coil

PCOS And Mirena Coil

Okay so I have been having a really rough time since have the mirena coil fitted and I'm wondering how other have been on this coil with PCOS (hormonal imbalance and visible cystic overies) Thanks

I would definitely give them a call and let them know whats happening, could just take a bit to get used to...but its best to let them know as soon as possible for your safety and so they know to keep certain side effects in mind for future patients. I wouldnt worry too much...lots of water and maybe some ginger for any nausea. Hope it gets better!

Ive had two, and i did pretty good with them...what kind of issues? I know i felt off for a bit after, like the hormones on it were a bit strong at first...was like starting a low dose bc pill, just in a different area

It started about a week or 2 after insertion and in for 3 months now I had a check at 6 weeks and all was okay with its positioning but I'm waiting to go back to gynaecology x

How long have you had it? My gyno always has me come in after 3 months to make sure theres no signs of infection, ejection and that the strings are a good length. If its been more than 2 weeks with these symptoms, i would definitely call your doctor or the doctor that inserted it just to be safe.
