How long will I be bleeding heavily after Mirena coil fitting?

Three weeks ago I got the Mirena coil. It was inserted on the last day of my period. The cramps for the next week were terrible so I went back to the doctor who checked the strings and said it was fine, gave me painkillers, and sent me on my way. The cramps stopped 2 days later. 10 days ago I started bleeding heavily, 2.5 weeks before my period was due. This bleeding is quite heavy and is showing no sign of stopping. I got the Mirena to ease my heavy periods. I think I regret my decision getting the Mirena coil. I still have slight cramps, no energy or motivation. What should I do?

What is the maximum dosage for Colace stool softener at one time?

I took 400 mg at one time. I have chronic constipation and nothing works except for magnesium citrate. I don't have a bowel movement unless I use magnesium citrate because the Colace doesn't work. I don't use magnesium citrate every day, only to prevent my poo from backing up too long. I was told that if the poo backs up too far and reaches the other end of my colon such as the appendix that all of my organs will shut down. Is this true? I don't want to die from not being able to have a bowel movement. Any answers or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

After taking ibuprofen I had blood in my urine. After urinating twice it went away. I tried it again three weeks later it did it again. I have had normal colored urine since then. I went back to my doctor three weeks later for physical and they detected blood cells in my urine. Is this normal after three weeks? Should I be worried?

Can I put a tampon in to hold Monistat 7 inside me and is it safe to use with a tampon?

If not, why can't you use a tampon to hold it in? I cannot get the cream to stay in without a tampon. Is this safe?

Gabapentin, impotence and other problems?

I was just hoping that you might have the answer I am hoping for? I started taking gabapentin 300mg twice a day, then 3 times a day, then 600mg twice a day then 3 times a day, now after 2 to 3 years later 800mg 3 times a day. My doctor says it won't cause erectile dysfunction but it started very soon after the 300mg 3 times a day. I tried Viagra and Cialis very little help. My wife is very displeased and sometimes thinks it is something to do with her. I know it has nothing to do with her as she is my bride of 24 years and my soul mate spirit. I have very bad pain that the gabapentin used to help with but it now seems it helps no more. I would rather have my manhood back and my bride be happy and me than be in pain that just won't go away. To get to the real question, how slowly should I get off the gabapentin and will I ever be able to get back to normal? I will have to just have to tolerate the pain now that I have my diabetes under control. I rarely have to take my diabetes medicine but a few times a week because it makes my numbers to low and I black out when they get to low. Usually 82 morning, 92 lunch, and 98 dinner. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
