    Hi, I had the mirena coil fitted 18 years ago, changed every 5 years, I am 48 was diagnosed with PCOS in my 20’s although I had my daughter without any treatment. For the past couple of years I have had extremely painful breasts (one more than the other) I take evening primrose oil capsules but they don’t seem to help, they are very lumpy too (I have had them examined as they were so sore) my periods only last 2-3 days sometimes only 1 day, no hot flushes or night sweats, I get very tired, forgetful, I wake several times through the night , thinning hair and dry skin. Could the Mirena Coil be the reason for my painful breasts, could it be the menopause. Any advice would be appreciated I only have 1 week a month when my breasts are pain free.

      Hi Lynn It could be, we see a lot of women with the coil start to get extra or worse symptoms because of it. This is keeping your progesterone artificially high and if your oestrogen start to decrease it can trigger menopause-like symptoms. It may be an idea to speak to your doctor to see if this is the reason. I would also ask to be tested for low iron and low thyroid function as both of these can trigger fatigue, brain fog, thinning hair and dry skin. Painful breasts can sometimes be ease with a kelp supplement and you could also add in a couple of cups of nettle tea as well.

      Hi Kay At 52 it is more than likely that your hormones are starting to subtly change and you can experience menopause-symptoms even though you may be having regular periods. However, these could be due to other issues such as low iron, low thyroid function or low vitamin D so it is a good idea to ask your doctor to test for these just to rule them out. In the meantime you may find a magnesium supplement 200mg twice a day can help to ease some of the symptoms and a Sea Buckthorn Oil Capsule is known to help with dry mouth. Remember to drink lots of plain water as dehydration can make all these symptoms worse.
