Auras and mirena coil
I am 42, I have had a mirena coil for over 4 years now for contraceptive purposes, but feel I would not want to go back to a life dominated by periods. I am happy with the coil and live a full and happy life.
My periods have stopped, but for the last 6 years, after having 2 children, I have experienced debilitating ovulation pain most months when it feels like I am in labour for 20 minutes or so at ovulation time.
Over the last 2 years or so, I have developed regular auras lasting for 20 mins right around the time of ovulation and sometimes up to a week after. These do not develop usually into bad headaches, but sometimes leave me with a thick head or a feeling that I am on the cusp of getting these visual disturbances. Dramatic changes in light contribute to the problem, very bright or change from dark to very light. I sometimes get them upon waking to a sunny but curtained room
My friend, who does get migraines suggested I could have progesterone deficiency. So here I am. Advice please?
Will progesterone cream help any of these symptoms. Especially concerned about the auras.
