Customer Question
Hi I’m 50 and...

Hi I’m 50 and had the Mirena for the 2nd time a year ago due to severe endometriosis. I have suddenly started to lose a lot of blood - completely out of the blue after no bleeding for several months. It’s very heavy. Any ideas please as GP just shrugged!

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

I’m fit and healthy. Good weight. Don’t smoke or drink and play a lot of sport. Work very stressful.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Just that the endometriosis was extremely bad and I have had lots of operations. Mirena been great for years. I have to have it inserted under anaesthetic due to level of endo.

The progestin in the Mirena has probably worked so well, that the lining of the uterus is so thin it is bleeding. I’ve found success with this problem with a single shot of delestrogen, after doing a transvaginal ultrasound to see that status of the endometrium. It shouldn’t create a problem with endometriosis. I hope you can correct your problem although it may stop bleeding without doing anything. No way to know how long it would take just waiting.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
