Had some spotting after sex, can it be normal for bleeding after sex when just had mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted?

Had some spotting after sex, can it be normal for bleeding after sex when just had mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted?

It's probably OK: It would be important to know how long after the Mirena (levonorgestrel) was inserted to say for sure, but this is most likely OK. In the absence of continued bleeding and/or pain, there is little cause for concern. Inserting the Mirena (levonorgestrel) causes some dilation at the cervix and disruption in the uterus, making mild bleeding likely, particularly after intercourse. Should it persist, see your doctor. ...Read more
