last week i had mirena coil removed from my right fallopia tube via laparoscopy, after the dr had checked it wasnt inside my womb.
i asked the nurse at the hospital how long the bleeding would last-she didnt have a clue and said 2 ask the dr, but i was discharged before seeing him.
had 2 days of light bleeding/spotting, 1 of a strange discharge, 1 day of nothing then more bleeding for the last 2 days. my period would be due around now, but tis is much lighter than period, and also quickly goes brown.
how long does this usually last for? we want to start ttc!!!!!
please share your experiences so i dont feel alone or quite so lost
They don't know about Mirena coil removals because very few women return with problems after having them removed. They are not being dense. It's just normal for the patient to bugger off home and never for them to see them again.
I had a laparotomy 3.5 weeks ago to remove a 9.5cm ovarian cyst (very impressive 7.5 inch scar) on Monday 8th Nov and had my merina coil removed at the same time. 10 days later I had a bit of cramping and some very light spotting, but nothing after that.
I'll know if my cycle settles down if AF arrives in 2 weeks time (which is when I expect it). The Gynae I saw told me that I could get PG straight away after coil removal, but it would probably take a few cycles to settle down and get back to normal.
Hi whomovedmychocolate, i didnt mean any offence in saying the nurse didnt know the answer, and im sorry if i did.-thats wot dr's r 4 eh, the knowlege they have i know i could never do it! Quiet tiger that sounds massive! Must have been painful! How ru doing now! Gr8 news about possibly being able 2 fall pregnant straight away! Just gota wait 4 bleeding 2 stop 1st :-(
oooh well done buttonmoonCONGRATULATIONS ! 9 days, hopefuly only another 2 days and should b sorted then. can i ask if ur periods changed at all (lighter/heavier) after mirena? id b expecting myn around now, do u think the dates will get 'messed up' too?
My bleeding was always very difficult to predict on the Mirena - one reason why I'll never have another one!
I think they were a lot more regular and a fair bit heavier after it was out. After the first bleed it was 35 days until my next period but then I tested 28 days after that and was +ve. I think (going on cm rather than opks) that I ovd exactly 14 days before my period and before I tested.
I was actively ttc right from when I stopped bleeding - I don't place much importance on waiting a cycle to let things settle down. After all, that's what a dating scan is for, no?!
#4?!! when u had ur 1st/2/3 did u ever think that would b it? we're going 2 b ttc #3, after being adament that we'd ds (#2) would b our last!! am saying this time (all being well) will b, esp as my dh (who's older than me) is 42, i wouldnt want 2 push it by thinking of having more after this (he has severe sleep apnea so is knackered all the time as it is, i dont think it would b fair on him or the kids, or myself 2 keep going).....but then u never know
