First and foremost, I have to say that suicide is not the answer. You have waaaaayyyyy too much to live for. With that being said, I'm not sure if Mirena is related to endometriosis but I've wondered the same thing since my pain didn't start until I had it placed. I haven't come across any material (but then again I haven't looked to hard either) that correlates the two but that really doesn't mean anything. As for your pain, I've found that Lortab and heating pads help me. Hopefully you can find some relief from this. If you need to vent, there are a lot of support groups out there. Since you're potentially looking at getting a hysterectomy, Hystersisters.com has good support groups for endometriosis. You could also try relaxation techniques or yoga for stress relief (rent a dvd on yoga from the library, view youtube videos on yoga, etc). I hope this helps you! Hugs!!!View Thread
