Hi all. I had a mirena coil fitted last month. I had a bit of spotting that night and the following day then nothing. My period came as normal when due and it's still here- now into 3rd week of constant bleeding and cramping. Is this normal? It's making me feel shit.

Yes it's quite normal, in my experience. Since mine fell out (eek!) my periods have really improved!

Very normal! They can take a while to settle down but I loved mine. No periods, pmt compacted to 2-4 days instead if weeks. Totally worth sitting out the settling down bit.

Really?sadsad

I had it fitted to improve heavy painful periods- this seems to have made it worse! I feel like ripping it out myself sadsad

It worked for me but took about 3 mths to settle. Maybe its not for you
