      It is not a treatment, it is a management style. Only treatment that exists is excision, everything else is management.

        @100Percent_K yeh i meant it as "treatment" as that is what it is referred to when i go the hospital obviously it's not a definite treatment

      i had the coil for endometriosis and it didn’t make a difference for me, i was still in pain constantly and i bled continuously so they put me on the contraceptive pill with the coil. I recently had the coil out as it wasn’t helping me personally. However everyone is different so you never know it may help you?

      However I’ve seen it stop peoples bleeds and pain so it really depends on you x I’ve been on contraception since I was 11 and nothing ever stoped it until now and I’m 21 . That was combination of Mirena coil and progesterone only pill x

      I have to say everyone’s body is different x I had surgery in 2020 to remove endo and the coil was my “treatment” however I didn’t stop bleeding till October because they put me on extra contraceptive pills . It didn’t help with my pain and even though I don’t bleed I still get all the pain in pelvis ? Back , legs and chest and when I go for a number 2 so it’s a tricky one x
