Hi, I am 30 years old, i had my first child when i was 19 years old, afterwards, i bled heavily, everytime i was supposed to have a smear done, i started bleeding. Eventually, when i was 21 years old, i was able to have the smear test. I was diagnosed with abnormal cells, i was at the 3rd stage, so luckily i got laser treatment done in the nick of time, as i was told that there are 5 stages, then it s cervical cancer. Afterwards i was still bleeding terribly. I went on to have another child, when i was 24. After my pregnancy I attended hospital for further investigation, and eventually, i was diagnosed with Endometriosis. My gp advised me to have the mirena coil inserted to treat my symptoms. She tried to fit the mirena, but due to the fact that i ve had a lot of my cervix removed with the laser treatment, and the fact that it was extremely painful, i had to be put under general anasthetic to have it fitted. Since I had it fitted 4 years ago, i ve hardly had any bleeding, but have experienced severe lack of sex drive, (i used to be verging on nymphomaniac before i had it fitted!) and feel really hormonal a lot of the time. I try to avoid sex with my partner as much as possible, as it s extremely uncomfortable & painful when i do have sex. The other night, we had sex, i had to tell him to stop, as it was really painful. I started bleeding immediately afterwards, but the pain i had was unbearable, i swear i was having labour pains! I could hardly move! I went to bed & was woken up during the night with the pain and i ve been having cramps ever since. This morning when i woke up, i went to the toilet, and had shooting pains when i tried to pass urine. I went to see my local nurse today, as i was due to have a routine smear test done, she said that she can see the strings of my mirena, so she thinks that it is still in place, but i feel that it has dislodged, as i ve had it in for 4 years and have never experienced any pain like this before. I want the mirena removed, but the nurse can t do it, there were no female gps on today, so the nurse advised me to seek advice from my local family planning clinic. I was wondering whether they will be able to remove it without a general anasthetic, as i needed one to have the mirena fitted. Also, what other treatments are available for endometriosis? Thanks

Hi I have recently had my ovaries removed due to really bad migraines that we causing me problems. It was agreed that my migraines were hormone related and the best way to treat them were bilateral oopheroctomy. I was asked if I agreed to a mirena coil being fitted. I didnt really want this but was advised this would be the best thing to help protect womb lining. As I dont really want to keep the coil in, is there any other recommendations as an alternative? Thanks
