I had the mirena coil fitted last Tuesday and I started my period yesterday. It was 2 months late when I had it fitted so I knew when it finally appeared it would be awful but this is horrendous. Bright red blood, heavy and SO painful. And I mean so painful to the point I get dizzy and feel I am about to pass out. I've never had cramps like this before and I've never had a period this bad and I suffer with awful periods.
I understand that it takes a little while for the coil to settle, my auntie has endo and she said the coil really helped but took a while to settle so I will try and be patient.
Has anyone else had a horrendous period at the beginning but then ended up with a good experience in the long run?
