The state cut off my health insurance with no letter as to why they did so this is my last resort right now until I can see sombody. I wont go back to planned parenting because they are the ones that put this thing in and they wernt professional at all. I've had it for about 4 or 5 months now. I'm often having mild cramping period or not since i got it. I recently had some pretty bad back pains in my lower back. they have since passed but I realized that bleeding was coming whan my back hurt like that. the more pain, the more bleeding. I had just had a normal period and it had been gone for a couple days before this started.it's now been over 2 weeks that this bleeding has been going on. the last 2 days, my back wasnt hurting but today I was in the store and my back was a little sensitive. when I got home... more blood. I had mirena before and never had these issues. sombody give me an idea of whats wrong. should I go to the er? just wait it out? get a pregnancy test? There isnt any more then normal cramping when I bleed or have the back pains.
Sadly, I have been told to wait 8-9 mths for it to subside before further intervention. Its been 2 mths and I still bleed heavily, my DO gave me an additional progesterine pill for 10 days because possiblu the application was to close to my natural menses. It has since gone almost away for short periods which I am beyond grateful for and I have endometreosis so a period means severepain and consistantly that was unacceptable. Maybe bring it up, even planned parenthood would help you or so I imagined. All my best to you! Merina is progestorene and the added hormone must halt it in some some manner. Hound them if you must, your beyond worth it!
