Has anyone had trouble with the merina coil and ovarian cysts. I had the merina coil fitted in february, then when I went for my 6 week checkup the docter couldn,t find the strings, so i had to have an ultrasound to check where it was? The coil was in the right place, but they found a cyst on the right ovary, then about a week after I started to have pain on my right side. This went on for 3 weeks. I went back to docter ,she referred me to gynae,
I had to wait 6 weeks to get an appiontment, was in pain all this time,
When i saw the consultant she said to have the merina removed, I agreed, so she tried to remove it but she couldn't see the strings, so I had to have it removed surgically under a general. I had to wait 5 weeks to have this done!
I have never had trouble with ovarian cysts in my life. Only when I had this merina coil, that all the problems started.
I know that it suits some people,but i don't think it is worth the risk if it doesn't suit you, and also they don't give you the list of all the side affects
until you have had it fitted. If i knew before i wouldnt have had it fitted.
So anyone thinking of having a merina coil. Please think very hard about it first.
