I know I have done this to death but...... I got the coil fitted in Feb after 18 months of random bleeding/spotting (I have PCOS). I got the coil fitted beleiving it would stop my periods and I would return to some sort of normal. Anyway I am still having random bleeding/spotting almost daily and it is driving me nuts. I miss 'going for an early night' and I need to know if and when this will stop. Does anyone know of anything else that can be done. PLEASE ADVISE????
I think they normally say 3-6 months for things to settle. I've not had this with either of mine, but a friend who has had a lot of problems with irregular and prolonged bleeding had one fitted, and after 4 months it did really help
It took about 4 moths for me to settle down with the Mirena. I too was having random spotting etc. Now (18mths later) it's brilliant: apart from the acne , which doesn't happen to every to everyone though
I cant wait for it to work. I am very pesamistic about it as I have tried EVVERYTHING else and nothing has worked for me. I have had heavy irregular periods since I was 11 and have pretty much tried everything. I am not convinced this is going to work either although I have to say, I have felt better in myself since I had it fitted,.
I had heavy and more frequent periods before I had my coil fitted and it's only just settling down now after 8mths. To start with they did get a little lighter every month This is the first month that I would say I didn't get a proper bleed and I had it fitted in October laster year.
I havent had a proper bleed since I got it fitted. I had heavy bleeding to start with but I havent had a 'period' since I got it fitted,. I just get this damn spotting/staining on a daily basis. Its really annoying.
I was fine for the first 9 months or so and for the last 6 months it's all gone belly up Much more bleeding. And 2 weeks ago I had a massive bleed, clots 'n' all which knocked me for 6. So who knows what's going on on....
I had nothing for the first year but was also excl BFing, the last 6 months have not been fun, really heavy periods (and I mean gushing heavy) that can last 2 weeks and then start again 2 weeks later, sometimes I get a short light period but most of the time it is bad. GP says I need to 'let my body get used to it' but ffs it has been fecking months. Am constantly on the verge of booking appt to get the thing out.
