Hi. I was wondering whether anyone else had a similar experience with this?
I had the copper coil fitted in September last year. For the past few months, I've been bleeding between periods and for the last couple, it's been continuous. Today, it's become a lot heavier with cramping and I'm definitely not due on.
I plan to ring the doctors on Monday to discuss but can anyone shed any light?
I've had two over the last 10 years, they were effective (as in I didn't get pregnant) but they both got lost and the last one caused some unusual discharge.
I did have heavier periods and painful stomach cramps with it.
It could have moved, your symptoms sound similar to the ones I experienced.
That was my experience too. The Mirena was completely different - much lighter periods.
