Hi dear. I had my coil removed 5 days ago after having it for 4 and a half years. My coil worked in that I did not get pregnant, and my periods became very light to nonexistent, however, I do suffer from anxiety and bad OCD, so it’s interesting that you have mentioned the coil making this worse! I have recently started meds to help my OCD. I have had problems whilst my coil was in; a couple years ago I couldn’t have sex with my ex for a long while because it felt like something was in the way, and if I did it anyway I got bleeding and pain, and upon getting coil checked it had not moved. More recently I have had odd discharge and itching, and my normal smell was a lot stronger, so of course, I got tested at Lotus Clinic and all tests and blood tests and an ultrasound came back clear! Upon researching other people’s problems with the Mirena I discovered that a lot of other women have experienced exactly the same symptoms with Drs having no idea what’s wrong with them!!! So I got it removed in Lotus Clinic (which was very quick and painless), and am hoping everything settles down in the next couple of weeks. So far I have had a very small amount of blood and a small amount of discharge, but it seems to be slowly settling down. An interesting pattern I saw in peoples comments was that after about 4 to 5 years their periods started to come back and these discharge symptoms developed, so I wonder if the hormone within the IUD starts to run low at this point or its the limit to keeping it in! Hope my experience will help someone.
