The first line options for treatment of endometriosis are Depo provera or Tridomose or surgery. The Mirena would work in a similar way to Depo provera. Some women experience the side effects you describe but it is not possibel to predict who will and who won't. Sterilisation will not help your endometriosis. If you do not want to try the Mirena, you may wish to discuss one of the other options mentioned above.
