I had a copper coil fitted on 2 Dec so only 5 days ago and the dr said there could be some bleeding. Which there is. I just wanted to know really how long is it likely to last?

Helpfully I have a period tracker!
Copper coil (my second one) fitted on 10th. Bled that day, the 15th and 16th then had a period 22nd to 27th if that helps?

Thanks! Still having some spotting over a week later but it seems to be settling down (hopefully!)

I had mine fitted in May and I really like it and weirdly my period pain has disappeared which I didn't think would happen. I bled for about a week after it was fitted & had cramps but after that the bleeding got less and less.

I wouldn't think it would last longer than ten days and in that time should get to a very light bleed.

I hope this is the case for you smile
