Bleeding with big clots after having mirena (levonorgestrel) coil removed. Normal?

Bleeding with big clots after having mirena (levonorgestrel) coil removed. Normal?

Most likely: While the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is in it causes the periods to be much lighter than what is normal for you. Once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed then the periods will go back to whatever is your normal. Also in your late 40's it is common to have heavy and irregular periods as you get closer to menopause. Many women will use Mirena (levonorgestrel) at that age just to get the periods to be lighter. ...Read more

I'm 43 had a mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted 4 months ago had cramps and clots and bleeding frequent, what could be wrong please?

Bleeding on Mirena (levonorgestrel) is highly variable.: Most bleed and spot for the first few weeks and then periods dramatically lighten with 50% not having a period by 1 year. There is wide variations in the bleeding pattern typical of Progesterone only methods. Irregular bleeding is expected and does not mean the iud does not work. If you are concerned please schedule an iud check with your obgyn. ...Read more

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

Not likely, but...: Unexpected bleeding with a Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud should be checked with a pregnancy test. It is most likely due to declining Progesterone levels from the device. Protection from pregnancy should still be good for the full 5 years despite the bleeding. ...Read more

Unprotected sex?: If you have not been in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship, both of whom are disease-free, get checked for a sexually transmitted disease. Also, an exam can detect if you have irritation of the cervix, which can sometimes bleed. Any new meds or supplements? If so, & not prescribed, stop. Can be other causes, & if no chance of std & problem happens again, get checked. If fever, pain-ER! ...Read more

Hi, I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil in but im having bad stomach pain and bleeding could I be having a ectopic pregnancy?

Possible, not likely: Intrauterine contraceptive devices, when properly placed, are very effective in preventing any type of pregnancy, including ectopics. Nothing is 100%, though, so please see your gynecologist urgently to get an HCG and possibly pelvic ultrasound and put your mind at ease. Best of luck! ...Read more

Yes.: Many women will have some bleeding and cramping with or without sex after having an IUD placed. This is usually temporary. If your doctor cannot see the strings then he or she could perform an ultrasound to verify that the IUD is in the uterus. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil and been on my period for 3 days, the blood looks Brown (and not alot of bleeding) is the colour normal?

Yes: This is the color of old blood and is normal. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) contains a progesterone like compound and constantly tells your uterine lining not to grow, to get mature. For this reason periods are much shorter and lighter and frequently just consist of dark black or brown spotting occasionally. ...Read more

I'm taking the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil out because of constant breakthrough bleeding-will I have this if I go back on the pill straight away?

Maybe: Before you take the Mirena (levonorgestrel) out you may want to consider a 21 day regimen of an estrogen pill. It may stop the bleeding and let you continue with the mirena (levonorgestrel). However if you do take it out you may have irregular bleeding for some time before your body adjusts to the pill. ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD for 7 months. NO bleeding. 2 days ago VERY heavy bleed (still bleeding) & thrush like symptoms. Possible cause/s? Normal or concern?

It is common to have: irregular bleeding in the first 3 months, sometimes heavy. However once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) has been assimilated periods become much lighter, often times disappearing altogether. This is a desirable side effect for most women. However, if you start to have menstrual flow again and it continues like a torrent for a month or 2, it is possible that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) has been dislodged. Very low likelihood but ...Read more

Or to GYN office. ..: The fact that you stopped bleeding but have restarted and it is quite heavy is concerning. It will very likely need an intervention to stop the bleeding so go to your GYN's office (the one who removed the IUD, if possible) TODAY, or to the ER. The IUD may have been more deeply embedded into the wall of the uterus and/or taking the IUD out caused trauma. You need to be seen today! Good wishes! ...Read more
