Mirena coil fitted last week......still bleeding, is this normal?
Actually it's nearly 2 weeks ago. I thought this was my normal period but it's lasting much longer. It's lighter than normal (regular tampax instead of super duper plus!). I am getting some mild period pains first thing in the morning. Otherwise no pain. Just wondering if the prolonged bleeding is normal?
Don't know about the quantity, but I had light bleeding (like last day period, just enough for panty liners type) for about 6 weeks, nothing since (but still BF so that's probably why no periods). Don't know if that's any help?
I had the Mirena taken out about a yr ago.It was in for 2 yrs. If I can remember correctly the Dr told me it could take a few months to fully settle in but I was bleeding/spotting on and off for 9 months!!! I think it just varies person to person. Hope I haven't put you off
I was exactly the same herbietea. I also got quite depressed.Many reports you read state that depression and raging hormones cannot be blamed on the Mirena but I have heard of many women being effected in these ways. I suppose it suits some people brilliantly and others not at all. Fingers crossed that yours settles down and suits you Luckymummy74
