Hi I just need advise i'm 55 and had the marina coil fitted 5 years ago and just had it taken out. I was so sure I have been through the menopause as I've had plenty of hot flushes and all the symptoms, however since the coil has been taken out only a month ago I have now started my period again. Has this happened to anyone else?

I have a Mirena but have no plans to take it out yet.

Sorry OP I can't offer you any help but very interested to see what replies you get.

My DM had a Mirena at 53 to help with her horrendously heavy periods. Although they didn’t stop entirely, they were much lighter for a couple of years, then stopped.

When she had the coil removed at 58, she assumed she was post-menopause. The nurse did say she may get a bleed after the removal and she did the very next day.

DM was worried by this and went to her GP who sent her for a scan which confirmed all was well, officially post-menopause.
It hasn’t happened since and that was three years ago.

If you’re worried, think a chat with your doctor to confirm where you’re at with your menopause would be a good idea.
