Hi my name is Merel (32) PCOS and im from Europe.
- I want to know if trying the Mirena Coil is a good idea with PCOS since i've red that Mirena interrupts a woman's natural hormone cycle, but less than the birth control pill and that worries me because my natural hormonal cycle is horrible with my PCOS
- I have already placed the coil yesterday but now im worried, should i be worried?
- Should i give this a try for 6 months and see if I like the results?

I've had the Mirena IUD since 2014, and it has not regulated my cycle. I have had a few periods since, but now I've been without once for a year. Has anyone else experienced this problem with this IUD?
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.
I've been on tri lo sprintec for the past almost year. I've been so unhappy with it. The obgyn wanted me to be able to skip periods and I haven't been able to. It's caused me to have extended periods that are still as heavy as before. Also, the weight gain from water retention has been awful. So I've been looking into the mirena IUD and just wanted to know of any experiences with it, good or bad. I'm concerned how it would affect me having pcos.
SOS, I need advice and personal stories. I’ve had Mirena for about two years now. I simply wanted it for its sole purpose as birth control.

I tried a bunch of different birth control pills before and I hated every single one of them. I either bled every two weeks, gained excessive weight, or was a moody b*tch. My mom still thinks my moods swings may be cauased… read more
I'm looking into an IUD, what types worked for you guys? I'm bad with the pill, I always forget to take it!
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
Has anyone else experienced prolonged bleeding while having PCOS?? I’ve had this “period” since December 2017 and was recently put on birth control to stop the bleeding due to becoming anemic. I’ve had a Pap smear and it came back “normal”. Is there something out there (besides birth control) I can take to stop this issue?
I was put on BC to help with my PCOS. My last two “periods” were really just spotting. This one has been three days of medium to light bleeding. Has this happened to anyone else of birth control? I take my sugar pill week, usually take them at the same time everyday.
