I have stage 3 endometriosis and want to take the coil out

This answer was rated:

I have stage 3 endometriosis and want to take the coil out next year, is it safe for me to go coil free and just use celest (the contraceptive pill) again or will the endometriosis get worse?
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: Levotheroxin. Im not allergic to any medications
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No

Yes that is safe since you have been on coil for some time.

Celeste alone should help to prevent any flare up.

You can continue for another year if you are not comfortable yet.

I am certainly comfortable. Just worried. But if you think it will be ok to go from the coil to celest then I shall

You should be ok --most cases do well after coil removal
