... last for weeks and my flow was so heavy that I had to take a change of clothes with me when ever I left the house, just in case. my periods up until now have slowed down considerably but this last bout is going on 5 weeks with bleeding daily and getting considerably heavier by the day. im not entirely sure what to do. have it removed and go back to crazy heavy bleeding that lasted for 10 to 15 days or leave it in and see what happens
If explained to you properly, the Mirena can last 'Up to' 5 years, not meaning it 'WILL' for all. I am a chronic pain sufferer and have had the Mirena inserted for this reason, the way they explained it to me was if it is used for contraception, it should be removed after 5 years, if it's for therapeutic reasons, which yours falls under, you must replace it once your old symptoms appear if before the 5 year mark... Sometimes the hormone level drops in the cylinder prematurely causing the old symptoms to re-appear... If the device had worked for you up until now, I'd be asking your Gyno for another one :-) Good luck with it all :-)
I had my Mirena put in last Nov for heavy bleeding . Had a hellish times for 7 weeks. still bled, chronic pain, headaches, fatigue, depression. Had it removed after 7 weeks. Had ordered natural progesterone cream as started to flood again. It arrived from I Herb.com within a week. Within 2 days the flow was light and nearly gone. depression lifted headaches etc. Also went to a hormone Dr she said the cream was a good one and prescribed me with natural progesterone capsules and I take them both until anything changes . I am nearly 58 so still having periods was unusual. Results from a hysteroscopy were great, all normal. Going the natural way has been life saving. My friend who is in her 40s has been having heavy bleeding. She is now on the cream and it worked straight away. It is under $17 and the company is amazing and fast delivery. Good luck. It is an awful place to be in. :0)
