I had a coil put in and I’ve been on my period for 28 days. I’ve finally finished but how do I work out when my next period is?

Hi, have you had the mirena coil or a copper coil?

I suspect a mirena coil if you have had prolonged bleeding. If so, then the bleeding pattern can be quite unpredictable in the first six months:

- A third will have no further bleeding.

- A third will have regular monthly bleeds.

- A third will have irregular bleeding which should improve after six months. If not then you can ask your GP for advice and they will likely give you three months of the contraceptive pill just to see if that stops it.

Hope that helps!
