Had the coil fitted four weeks this Friday. So far bleeding seems to have calmed down had some weight gain and feel lethargic some days.
My main issue with it is having horrible dreams regularly which I only Ever experienced when I was pregnant with my son? Definatly not pregnant and only put it down to the coil...

I was tempted today to make an appointment for removal but I'm just wondering if should keep battling on or call it a day ??

I'd give it another month or two. I had random breakthrough bleeding for the first 6 months, been brilliant ever since, and have had some seriously weird dreams lately, but I'm not connecting them to my Mirena.a

Hi sian007

How is it going now? My doctor has just advised me to have it fitted too. Have you been bleeding continuously for the four weeks?

OldLady - how random is random? How are your periods now?

I don't need to take anything for contraception reasons and DP has had a vasectomy, but need something to control my periods and the Docs won't allow me to have the pill anymore for other reasons :-(

Feel like my emotions have calmed down slightly the last day or two. I had a period around the time I would have been expecting it but it dragged on for just over a week. No bleeding now for four days now...

Boobs feels swollen and my skin is not quite right spots etc... Still suffering with vivid dream which I put down to the mirena.
