Had ovaries removed due to migraine. Any alternative to Mirena coil?

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

hi.Since both your ovaries have been removed, you may be facing symptoms like that of menopause at an early age only.
It is important to have withdrawl bleeding every month to protect your endometrium and breast, also cardiovascular risks and osteoporosis.So, you can take combination pills ( estrogen + progesterone combination) and keep on getting withdrawl bleeding as well as protective effect of hormones; if you don't want Mirena to be inserted, which is a progesterone releasing device.
