Heavy Bleeding with Mirena Coil and Prostap Injection, what gives?

Hi, just thought I would sign up. Feeling lost really. I have suffered from heavy periods which worsened as I have got older. After meds to reduce bleeding didn't work, my GP suggested to have a Mirena coil fitted, it was too painful so the procedure was abandoned to I was booked in for a hysteroscopy. Three moths before I was given a Prostap Injection which worked a treat. I had the D&C and the coil fitted September last year. Since then I haven't stopped bleeding, in fact, they are even heavier. After going back and to with the doctors I finally got another Prostap injection. This hasn't worked either I have more bleeding more pain, I am down for another operation an Endometrial resection. I don't know how long I have to wait. Has anyone experienced this and what has worked? I want a hysterectomy, but with the costs and the only thing wrong is my periods the consultant won't do it, I had to push to get the Endometrial resection. How can two supposedly methods of reducing or stopping bleeding is making it worse? Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you

Hi, I've been having prostap injections as well and I have debilitating lower back pain but no bleeding So I. guess they must not always work 100%?
