Hi – I need some advice please ladies … I had the Mirena fitted at the beginning of Feb and have bled lots of days between now and then and although it is a pain, I know it needs time to settle. I had a very bad ‘period’ last month for March and then bled for 7 days of April so I presumed this was still period patterns however I have been spotting for a few days and I am now bleeding heavily again only a week after finishing my ‘period’. I know it can take up to 6 months to settle and stuff and most of my other symptoms are greatly reduced so I’m not complaining about the coil but …
I go on holiday to Florida in 24 days and thanks to Endo I have never had pain/bleeding free holiday for over 7 years
My doc mentioned Norethisterone a couple of weeks ago and said to go back before my holiday and she will prescribe me some to take whilst I’m away to stop any unwanted bleeding.
Has anybody else used this with Mirena?
Also, will I have to take this for the whole 2 weeks I’m away because if I stop then the bleeding will come back?
My mum takes these quite often to stop her crazy periods but she is SO SO moody and angry on them that I’m worried they may ruin my holiday just as much as the bleeding!!
Does anybody have any other suggestions to stop the bleeding whilst I’m away?
Many Thanks xx
