I have mirena coil for 14 months, my period has now settled

This answer was rated:

I have mirena coil for 14 months, my period has now settled to every 23 days and lasts for about 7 days which is 3 days if regular bleeding then a couple of days if spotting. The last 3 periods the spotting is going on for up to two weeks.

I was wondering why the mirena hasnt stopped my period ,I am 49. All my friends seem to never get a period this is my my third mirena I had a break of a year before getting this one inserted , the other two also took quite a while to settle. I just want to check that this is not a sign of something worrying . Thankyou

Hello, my name is Dr Uzair and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Though it can take for a while to get them settled but if the spotting lasts for two weeks for more than three cycles then see a doctor to get the thorough evaluation to rule out any hormonal imbalance.

With my age being 49 and maybe perimenopause could this be a reason for hormone imbalance. I am worried it is womb cancer? The spotting continues as part of the period.

Yes, it can be perimenopausal hormonal fluctuations and you should not be worried about cancer. You can get this evaluated by a doctor for further reassurance.
