Hi, sorry I have never posted on here before, but am in a panic. First of all I am 39, the mother of 3 children. Last year I had a hormonal Mirena coil fitted which lightened my period, but also knocked my cycle out meaning I could have my period every 2 weeks rather than every 4. Last week I went for my second smear this year, as I had irregularities last time and I have been bleeding after sex. Due to a weak pelvic floor, the nurse struggled with the smear, but got what she needed. She also booked me an appointment with my GP as I requested one. However since the smear I have been bleeding. Initially it was spotting, but in the past 24 hours it's been heavy, as in post- labour type heaviness. I wondered could my coil been knocked out of place and this has caused the bleeding. I can't get an appointment any earlier, but am panicking a bit.
