I had a diagnostic lap, endo excised and mirena coil inserted just over 3 weeks ago. I know the coil takes time to settle and I've experienced twinges and pinching I've read about that's normal. I'm sure this is normal too but I'm currently on day 12 of my period (I normally bleed for 6-8 days). It's been the strangest period.
Day 1 and 2 and sometimes 3 would usually be very painful and heavy. This time day 1 and 2 were barely painful more like a dull ache and very light - I was so happy! Then on day 3, crippling pain but still light. Day 4 pain was unbearable and suddenly became very very heavy. This lasted for 5 days and made me bed bound due to the pain. Most of this period the blood has been brown and very thick and sticky. Now I'm having a little blood with more like chunks of tissue coming out??!!! Is this normal? I think I read the coil thickens the womb so I'm guessing it's normal but it's scaring me, I've never seen anything like it before. Has anyone else had this and how long does it last? How long was your first period following the insertion?
