Hi again. I have another question for all of you lovely ladies. Before I started Esmya I had to come off norethisterone. Fearing a large withdrawal bleed and hoping to avoid another hospital admission, my consultant put the coil in a month before. My period was heavy but OK but unfortunately the coil came out.
This may be a good thing in that I've read you shouldn't have a coil in while on ESMYA as they both compete for receptor sites. Makes sense but when I mentioned this to my consultant he said that the coil deals only with the womb (preventing uterine lining building up) and ESMYA deals with everywhere else. He is the professional and I should trust his judgement but it contradicts what I've read in different sources. Just wondering what you think of this?
My issue is that he hadn't anticipated the coil coming out and he has said that I can either "wait and see" (what period will be like after Esmya) or he could put the coil back in as "belt and braces".
I just don't know what to do. I'm terrified of haemorrhaging again in that period after ESMYA and so the coil would help limit that. However I really want to give the ESMYA the best chance of working and I don't think that will happen with coil in situ. Unless, are there any ladies out there who have had fibroid shrinkage with Esmya and the coil in? If so, I would dearly love to hear from you.
And in general, if you don't mind sharing I would love to hear what people's experiences have been like with that period after first course ie. Heavier or lighter than usual, how many days after stopping ESMYA ...
Thank you again. Sorry for long post.
