I know there have been threads about this before but I need some help deciding I have uterine polyps and massive bleeding at the moment ( last period lasted 3 months) I am going to have the polyps removed but am unsure of the next step Originally my gyno was talking about either Mirena or Ablation the surgeon is pushing me down the Mirena route. I'm not 100% sure... ( possibly because i feel i'm being forced into it) so my questions 1) can you feel the strings? will my husband be able to 2) the leaflet mentions horrible things like not using tamons when its in .. thoughts? 3) did you have any problems with hormone associated things like weight gain, acne etc ( I'm temp. on the pill at the moment and I have a face like a pizza. I've dropped 25 pound since xmas and don't want to put them back on!) 4) can you feel it poking you inside? 5) how long did the irregular bleeding last? thanks so much for your answers alternatively is there anyone who has had ablation done?
