I have had a lumpectomy on 23rd September I have also had the all clear but need to take tamoxifen and also have radiotherapy .My progesterone level is 8 and oestrogen is also 8 .I have had the mirena coil for the past 13 years it was inserted due to extremely heavy periods. It has worked brilliantly for me no periods or any other side affects.My consultant has recommended that I have it removed to see if I am menopausal (I'm 50 next month ) but he then said that if my symptoms return I can have the coil put back in ....why remove it ????? Just wondering if anyone else is using both at the same time ??
