I had the Mirena coil fitted 4 months ago for heavy periods, with fibroids and adenomyosis. I had to wait a year to get a gynecology appointment, and had a hysteroscopy, and the Mirena fitted at the same time. I have not had a follow up appointment, and have been finding it hard to even get through to get an appointment with a GP, though I will keep trying. I was prescribed tranexamic acid to control the heavy periods, before this, and it was working well to a degree, but I was told that I needed to either get the Mirena coil or have a hysterectomy, and I felt somewhat pressured into getting it. Since it was fitted, I have not had much period pain at all, but the periods have been extremely long and heavy, with many massive clots and flooding, worse than before. I looked up drug interactions, and found that it was not good to take tranexamic acid with Mirena (I checked before i took any-- luckily- there are blood clotting issues),. I know it can take up to 6 months to settle, but the heavyness of the periods have been frightening and debilitating. is this normal? is there still a chance for this to settle? I got the coil fitted to control the heavy periods. thank you.
