I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2011, had the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted in 2012 and for the first six months things were brilliant but now for the past?

Mirena (levonorgestrel) 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 (levonorgestrel) iud will only help with the adenomyosis near the iud and not the endometriosis farther away. ...Read more

For the experts - might the mirena (levonorgestrel) device help endometriosis?

Most likely: This iud produces a small amount of Progesterone that has been impregnated into the unit. The Progesterone will treat the endometriosis if the dose is high enough. Also the Progesterone may inhibit ovulation which also will stop the growth of endometriosis. ...Read more

I have had mirena (levonorgestrel) for 3 months and am having worse pain with endometriosis. I can barely feel the tip of the string. How do I know if pain is ok?

I have had mirena (levonorgestrel) for 3 months and am having worse pain with endometriosis.  I can barely feel the tip of the string.  How do I know if pain is ok?

Pain is not ok: It would be wise to consult your Gyn, to have a pelvic sonogram, to reevaluate your diagnosis of "endometriosis", ..and confirm that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) is in proper place in your uterus. Since the cause of pelvic pain and the alleviation of pelvic pain are often quite challenging, you may have to review/rediscuss your options for medical management and / or surgical treatments periodically. ...Read more

How soon after getting mirena (levonorgestrel) out do I ovulate? I have endometriosis but had a surgery to remove it ~4 weeks ago

How soon after getting mirena (levonorgestrel) out do I ovulate? I have endometriosis but had a surgery to remove it ~4 weeks ago

Varies: It is possible to ovulate very soon after removing the Mirena (levonorgestrel). This is partially due to the fact that many women still ovulate with a Mirena (levonorgestrel) in place. I always warn my patients to use backup contraception as soon as the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is out and while they are waiting for their period to regulate. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with endometriosis I have had two laproscopy and also been treated with 2 six month doses of lupron depot to help control the pain i also have mirena my doctor tells me there is nothing else he can do for the pain i constantly have p

Endometriosis: First, has your doctor treated all visible disease at each laparoscopy - or used it mainly for diagnosis? If the latter, you might benefit from seeing a specialist surgeon. If 'yes, ' has your doctor helped you rule out other possible causes of pain (besides endometriosis?) bladder or intestinal disease? A pain management specialist may also be able to help. Best wishes! ...Read more

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
