mirena coil

had my mirena fitted in july 06. I bled every day for the first six months and now bleed for two weeks out of every month. i have always had trouble finding the strings and now cant find them at all and neither can the gp. I have to go for a scan to locate it, my question is has anyone else had this problem and how likely is it that it may not be where it should be

Re: mirena coil

Wow I can't believe you bleed for two weeks.I thought the Mirena was supposed to give you lighter periods.What did your doctor say about that? I have had my mirena in for about a year and I barely spot every month.

As far as the strings go, Can you feel your cervix? If you can feel it, the strings should be in that area. It can be hard for me to feel mine sometimes but i usually do after a while.

Re: mirena coil

doc said the bleeding should of settled by now and gave me some hormone tablets which helped whilst i took them but as soon as came off them it all started again. No cant feel strings at all neither could doc so really worried
