I have endometriosis and am on mirena and have had 3 doses of lupron but i'm still getting pain, what should I do?
My daughter has endometriosis and has an mirena IUD and she takes toradol for pain and it doesn't seem to work any other suggestions for pain?
I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2011, had the mirena coil fitted in 2012 and for the first six months things were brilliant but now for the past?
Mirena cant helpendo: Endometriosis on the pelvic surfaces typically causes pain in the time prior to and partly into the menstrual flow. Endometriosis that is in the muscle of the uterus (also called adenomyosis) causes pain during menstruation as well as heavy bleeding. The Mirena iud will only help with the adenomyosis near the iud and not the endometriosis farther away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I always warn my patients to use backup contraception as soon as the Mirena is out and while they are waiting for their period to regulate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Find the strings now: If you can't find the IUD strings by placing a finger in the vagina, have your MD do an exam and confirm that the IUD strings are present. If the IUD has migrated elsewhere or been expelled you will be at risk for conception. ...Read more
I have endometriosis and PCOS. I have a Mirena that expires in March. My goal is no periods and keeping my endo at bay. What is my best option?
Continuous OCP: Being 35 with PCOS puts you at risk of several metabolic problems like high cholesterol, pre-DM & DM. The first step is getting a full endo check-up & making sure all is OK. Then from the Gyn side you could go back on Mirena, take continuous OCP's which are now felt to be very safe with 3 month cycles, you could do depot Provera (not ideal but good). Lupron (primarily for endometriosis) or others. ...Read more
