View Full Version : Periods after coil!?
Has anyone had experience with this??
I startd bleeding sunday, and this morning it really took off, and I'm not lying when I say that this morning between 7-9am I'd changed the tampon AND sanitary towel I had on/in about 8-10 times!!
I've almost used a 32 pack now:faint: Today I mean!
That has continued for most of the day, I'll pop a tampon in, and 30mins after I can feel it coming out (so sorry for TMI) but it is then already SOAKED through with blood..
WTF is going on..
I mean, how am I suppose to go anywhere?
I did go to the gym, but had to go to the toilet 4 times in 2 hours, and even then, one of the times, I'd bled through a tampon, towel onto pants- after 30mins:loco:
Is this what it will be like??
How long for ?
I can't take it, it's toooo much:cry: :-(
Is it the copper coil you`ve got? cause the only draw back is heavy periods which might settle after six months or so.
I`d give it a few more months to see how it goes fingers crossed your periods will get lighter:luck: :hug: .
God I hope so..
I don't actually know which one I've got (how embarrasing) but she never mentioned the name of it, she (doctor) just fitted it.
I have had to go out tonight and buy super plus tampax and always night pads, as I've used my 32 pack of tampax (IN ONE DAY) and all my sanitary towels.
This will ruin me....:pants:
Personally I'd ring the doctor tomorrow - whether heavy periods are expected are not that doesn't sound right to me at all! I'm not saying there might be anything really wrong but there's no way I could put up with that for 6 months!!
It really does sound too heavy, maybe you should go back to the doctor. You`ll be anemic at this rate.
I did say to O/H this evening "I'll be anemic at this rate"- those exact words Amethyst..
He was like "ohh god don't tell me this"..
The I reminded him he'd seen me give birth, and he looked faint.
It's a lot isn't it, I mean bleeding so much the tampons are so heavy they're falling out after like 30mins..
Oh and I'm sorry for being so disgusting, but I figured we've more or less all given birth or at least we are all women, so hopefully you wont mind too much:sigh:
I'll call GP in the morning and see what they say..
Oh you poor thing it is a bit scary isn`t it:higgies:, you`ll be ok. Defo phone the doctor in the morning.Good luck, let us know how you get on.
Have you had a period since Theo been born? i mean before you had the coil.
Yes had a normal period when I trapped down on breastfeeding, it was light (as it has always been) and lasted 3-4 days.
Oh right. I didn`t BF i suppose BF would give lighter if any period.
I remember my first perid after Ollie was born it was terrible so heavy and clotty it did calm down after a couple of days.It was like a clear out:oops:,after the birth cause i hardly bleed straight after.
Hope your doctor can help tomorrow:smile: .
:shock: i hope you get it sorted soon :hug: it must be driving you nuts
Did you phone your doctor Miss SC:smile: .
Oh yes I did, but you can't speak to a doctor there apparently, only to a clueless receptionist!
Or you can turn up at 10am for an emergency appointment- but I didn't realy fancy that.
So I'm none the wiser!
It sounds like you've just had a normal coil fitted and they do tend to make your periods heavier and longer, especially initially when they are first put in. (I had a mirena put in on Monday and had a long chat with the FPC Nurse about the pros and cons of the normal and the mirena coil).
I would try and ride out the storm for a little while and see if things calm down. Otherwise maybe ring NHS Direct and speak to someone there?
I used a copper coil for about 4 years before LO came along and my periods NEVER settled down, although I had always been quite heavy before. The difference I did notice is that the periods didnt last as long so I'd have perhaps two awful days, followed by hardly anything. After having Lucy my periods are so much better with no coil! That said, I would still have another coil just because they are so much better than wellies or pills!! I hope things sort out for you xx
I`m sorry to hear your doctor surgery was useless:angry: . Has it settled down a bit now?.
Just read this thread as I am thinking about having a coil fitted soon...Miss Sweetcheeks is the bleeding less now? I must admit I was shocked to hear how much you were bleeding, I know that they say it can be heavier with a coil but that has got to be pretty extreme......hope you managed to speak to the doctor or NHS and are OK.
hhmm bleeding pretty much gone today, have only changed tampon once since getting up at 7am I think.
And there was barely anything on it..
So at leats it wasn't like a week of that sort of bleeding.
