Hi, I had my mirena coil fitted 19 months ago in an attempt to combat heavy & painful periods, I then bled pretty much for 6 months solid & was beginning to wish I'd not had it fitted but then after the 6 months it settled right down. I had only light bleeding every 6 weeks or so and barely had any period pain. I was so pleased that finally something had worked.
Then 5 weeks ago I started what would turn into a 3 week long, painful heavy period. I made a doctors appointment & typically it all stopped that day! I had a break for 7 days then it all started up again and then 3 days into my period, 5 days ago my coil fell out! Initially the bleeding almost stopped but now I'm flooding lots and losing big clots. I can't get a doctors appointment for 2 more days. Is this bleeding normal after a coil falling out? I'm 46 and hoping I hit the menopause soon so my periods just stop!
I'm so tired after bleeding for so long & I'm taking iron supplements and ponstan which is supposed to slow the bleeding.
Any advice welcome, thanks.
