Hi, I have been bleeding now for approx 7 weeks, only light flow nothing heavy. I went to my doctors who said it was probably my coil which was no longer working (it had been in for approx 6 years) and made me an appointmen to have it removed.
This took place on Thursday where after 20 minutes she finally managed to remove it but failed to put in another as she couldnt attach it. She said that there should not be any bleeding as I should have gone through the menopause by now (I'm 54) and that I shouldnt be bleeding whether the coil was working or not.
I feel a bit stupid for not thinking that bleeding for 7 weeks was not abnormal - for some reason I just thought that it was all of the backlog from when I had not had a period!! (I feel stupid just writing that). I have now been on the internet and looked up bleeding after menopause has finished and see all different types of cancer stareing back at me! The doc did not seem overly concerned and said she wanted some blood taking but that is not for another two weeks. Am I being paranoid now or should I push for an earlier appointment or does this sound like I shouldn't be too worried as she would have seen something wrong when she examined me?
