I had a mirena coil fitted 5 weeks ago after 4 long weeks of heavy bleeding to stop the heavy blood loss. However the bleeding got worse and 3 weeks ago I was prescribed norethisterone 3x a day to stop te bleeding which again made it worse, I have now seen my GP who upped my dose to 6x a day but the bleeding is again getting heavier and I am in a lot of pain/drained. What can I do?

hi i had my iud mirena removed this week after about 4 to 5 years use. I never lost my period but it has been lighter then usually is. Im worried about the lining of my uterus and been able to be pregnant and not have a miscarriage . will it make sperm hard to travel now due to the condition of what the mirena does to prevent been pregnant? and what does it real do to the lining of the uterus does it make it thinner over long period of use or does it only stop you from gathering more blood to be shed? what does it do to the texture of the wall lining?how long does it take to have your uterus back to its gripping structure again? what can you take to thicken the uterus?

I am on my second shot of depo. I had no side effects after my first shot. My period stopped within a month with no spotting. Then shortly after my second shot, I started gaining weight consistently, I had spotting randomly at a month in, I have been experiencing fatigue and morning sicknes. I m not sure if I should worry about this or if this is just something common with people on depo.
