Some one out there know what's normal with merina coil.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Okay here we go again. As mentioned in previous posts i got the merina coil fitted this year i bled for a couple of weeks after it was fitted and then nothing till August where there was light bleeding and today just a light pink when i went to bathroom ( sorry to much information) but the period feelings no pain or anything same as August.

Well my question is, is this normal as i was nearly five years period free before i started bleeding earlier in the year and as mentioned in earlier post i got a polyp removed and the merina coil fitted but no after care so i dont know if this is part of it as now im getting hormones from the coil i wasn't before.

Somebody out there must be post menopausal and been on this for more than a year. Any advice would be welcome.

    hi again Heather. i have been exactly like that. Was 4 years post menopause when i started bleeding. had ultrasound, vaginal ultrasound and biopsy in july. Found to have thickening of the womb lining, eg hyperplasia and had merina coil fitted in august. bled for a couple of weeks after and then odd pink stain now and again. Where i differ from you is that i was told i would need follow up biopsies every 6 months to check on progress.

    I think you should make an appointment to go back and discuss any follow up plan. i wish you well x

      Thanks for replying.

      My question is in everything i read if you still getting a menstrual cycle this bleeding is nothing to worry about, but nobody said if this was normal to occasionally slightly bleed.

      I spoke to the advanced nurse in my doctors surgery and she said not to worry but she was unclear herself.

      I cant just contact the consultant and ask if tbis is normal and of course i do worry that it could be a sign of other things.

      I had a biopsy taken when i got the polyp removed and that was normal and that was on 16/05/2019 , the point i am trying to make is do i just ignore this and think this is a side effect of the coil and just stop all the worry.

      You know something its my birthday on Christmas Day and i just want a day where im not worrying.

      Hi again. i can understand your worry. obviously different areas must have different policies, as my consultant actually gave me her number in case i had any worries. could you not get your gp to refer you back? It doesn't seem right to just leave you in limbo, although if you had a biopsy which was normal, I'm sure everything is ok. I do hope you can get some answers and I wish you a happy birthday for christmas day. Its my birthday today (9th Dec) and I've now turned 58 xx
