Mirena coil pain

Posted , 5 users are following.

I had the coil fitted 2 days ago and im still experiencing period like pains.

There was no mention that the pain would last longer than a few hours so I'm a little concerned.

Is this normal and how long does the pain normally last?

    I would advise the same as Julie! When I first got mine I had pain and I was getting to the point where I just wanted it out. I stuck with it for a little longer and now I have absolutely no problems and love having no worries about becoming pregnant. Also they say periods will be heavier and longer but I have found the oppposite...mine are less painful and about the same as before in length. Stick with it and I think it will settle smile

    Having the coil fitted brings on period like symptoms, my mirena coil didn't settle for months, and was great there after. Just be sure to check for your threads. And if you can't find them get your doctor to check.
