I think it’s beginning again

I think it’s beginning again… Mirena, are still there???

I posted on 2/16 in a post titled So… that I felt like I was on my period. I had everything – the back ache, the leg aches, the moodiness, the stomach pains; everything but the menstrual flow.

Well, on March 10th, shortly after I arrived to work I experienced intense pain near my left ovary (yes THAT left ovary – the one that SHOULDN’T EVEN BE THERE!!!!!!). Could you imagine my frustration at that moment? It gripped me like someone was stabbing me very quickly. I had just gotten to work so I didn’t want to leave. I tried to just keep a straight face. I started feeling clammy and a little dizzy; it really felt strange. I wasn’t sure what was going on. I was sure I had a cyst and it was rupturing. And I was not thrilled! After about an hour, the pain began to ease down from sharp and intense to mild and just crampy. I could tolerate it. When it was time for me to switch classrooms, I went to the bathroom and found… I was spotting. It was just a tiny amount though. Not enough even for a panty liner! Then probably 30-40 minutes later I’m literally seized with this crippling back pain in the center of my lower back that shoots down the back of my legs and I can’t move. I’m just standing there! It hurts and nearly brings me to tears. It feels like someone has my lower half in a vice!

My back still hurts down to my feet; just not as bad. My pelvis still aches; not nearly as badly. And I occasionaly see pink when I go to the bathroom. Is this my new period? Is it making a comeback?

If it’s making a comeback, what else will make a comeback???

  1. Endochick,

    I’m so, so sorry. Try to get as much rest as you possibly can. Endometrioisis is so brutal.


    • Thanks, Jeanne. This Mirena has been a blessing for me (will be 2 years in April) and I’m not sure what my options will be if it fails. I have 3 years left with it in me. I need to look into a Carle doctor now. Thought I could stretch it until my next yearly. Guess not.

  2. So sorry to hear, Endochick. Thinking of you and wishing you relief.

  3. Endochick,

    Sending positive energy your way!
