I've been referred back for colposcopy following a gyne appt on 14th March. Basically I keep having bleeding and pain after sex. My doc referred me to gyne and when I went they said that my cervix looked perfectly healthy, although you can't see abnormal cells with the naked eye (hence the referral to colposcopy again), however she did ask me about my coil.
I had my 2nd mirena hormonal coil put in Sept 2011, after I had my previous one removed in June 2011 due to having LLETZ. When my gyne told me my coil could have been responsible for the bleeding and pain I went to my local family planning clinic and had it removed (18th March). Since then I am happy to say there have been no more issues with bleeding or pain after sex. We are using condoms at the moment until I get sorted (I don't want to take any more hormonal birth control due to the effects it has on my emotional and physical health) but all this has got me wondering whether the mirena had anything to do with developing the abnormal cells in the first place.
I had my daughter in 2002 and had clear smears every 3 years right up until 2011. At this time I had had mirena for 2 1/2 years. I was experiencing the same symptoms of bleeding and pain after sex and I have had every STD test, urine and blood test going both times all with negative results. Then I had my first abnormal smear. Now the symptoms are back. I won't know until I have the colposcopy whether the abnormal cells are back, but I'm very interested to hear whether any other ladies out there have this coil and whether they have had recurrances of abnormal cells with it where they have previously been all clear?
