Since 13 years old I've always had very heavy periods and over the years I've had increasing cramps!
I got my mirena 2 days ago. To hopefully stop the heavy periods and to stop pregnancy etc.
I am 28 and I have never had children, so the doctor suggested I was put to sleep while the coil was put in seeing as I'm small down there and it'd be very uncomfortable for me.
The operation went fine, until I woke up. I was in extreme pain from the coil! There was no spotting, just the cramps. I ended up staying over night in hospital they got so bad. I couldn't walk, sit down, or go to the toilet. It was hell. The nurse gave me ibuprofen, paracetamol (500) and MORPHINE! Non of them eased the pain.
I came home from hospital yesterday and had only light cramps, so I used a hot water bottle, snuggled up with the boyf and took paracetamol.
Today I woke up with horrible cramps. The doctor explained it should only hurt for 4 days but the cramps I get on my period are horrendous and the whole point was to stop them being like this.
I have no idea what to do! Should I get it taken out? Or should I deal with it.. Seeing as I'm going on a vacation abroad in 6 days, it's pretty risky!
