I used to be on the Depo Provera injection (I think that’s how it’s spelt) and had used it in the past, as someone else said, you have every 3 months. I found it great as it stopped my periods completely which was the main reason I’ve used it each time I have (always had unpredictable and painful periods). The last time I was on it I started bleeding again after about 2 1/2 years. In the end it was pretty much constant, even thought it was very light.
So I changed to the Mirena Coil in the hope that it would again stop my periods. Unfortunately it hasn’t done that although it’s not like I have a ‘normal’ period. I find that I have very light bleeding for about 2 weeks then nothing for a week or 2 then bleeding again. I also have the odd bit of peroid pain which isn’t anywhere near as bad I’d get if I wasn’t on anything. So much so that I’m happy to stick with it for now. I might try the Depo again when the coil is due to be changed and see if that does the trick again.
Nightmare being a woman isn’t it!
