Completely normal. One of the ways Mirena works is by thinning the lining of your uterine walls, which are what causes your period. It will lighten your period by around 90%. In some women it goes away completely. S

How long of a period will you have with a Mirena IUD?

Most women don't have any periods with a Mirena coil. Others just have a day or two of spotting, which means they can stop buying sanitary towels/tampons and just make do with panty liners. Think of the money they save! I had the coil fitted in 2000 at the age of 41 and have not had a period since, despite the fact that the coil must have run out of progesterone by 2007. I must have gone through the menopause without noticing.

Can Cooper be used as a magnet?

When copper is used as a wire to build a coil with a lot of whorls and a piece of iron is inserted in the hole of the coil this is called an electromagnetic device since that a voltage is applied in the coil, thus generating an electromagnetic power which is similar to that natural magnetic iron.

The coil would act as if a bar magnet inserted along its axis. So any iron material inserted gets magnetised.

Can you use tampons right after Mirena insertion?

It's not recommended. The first cycle after getting the Mirena inserted is the most likely time for the Mirena to be expelled, althouth long-term research has found options like tampons and menstrual cups don't cause expulsion, internal menstrual products mau increase risk of expulsion the first month. It's best to use pads, especially as your flow may be effected by the coil so with a different flow pattern you may risk using too high an absorbency tampon for your flow.

Do antibiotics effect the Mirena coil?

No. With other hormone contraceptives, the antibiotic can effect the efficacy of the contraception by interfering with the absorption of the hormone, however with the IUS, even if the antibiotic does interfere with the absorption- which is quite rare anyway,The IUS (device) is still in place in your womb which prevents you from getting pregnant- same as the copper coil. The progestogen hormone with the Mirena coil is also released directly into your womb. i got this from aregistered nurse on yahoo answere

If your girlfriend has her period between the 17TH and the 23RD each month when is the best time to have sex so she won't get pregnant?

Can you avoid period?

Yes. If you take certain contraceptive pills you can take 2 packets back-to-back to avoid your period if you are going on holiday etc. If you are thinking more long term than just one period, the mirena coil is supposed to be good at reducing/stopping periods. Sometimes if you are healthy enough your period will stop as long as you stay that healthy (the type of healthiness I am talking of is 100% Raw vegan)

Can you have the coil if am not on a period?

Yes, you can have the coil fitted when not menstruating. Some doctors may recommend having the coil fitted because it's easier to insert when your cervix is open or best to start hormonal birth control (including hormonal IUD) during menstruation, but it can be inserted at any time. Remember that IUD's are also used as emergency contraception, thus they have to be able to be used when a woman is not menstruating.

I can't say that it's 'normal' or a common symptom, just that it's also happening to me along with severe back aches.

What is the meaning of UID?

You mean IUD. It stands for Intra-Uterine Device and is often called the coil. It's a form of birth control invented about 2,000 years ago by the Arabs. It normally consists of a piece of plastic and copper inserted into the uterus. Another variation is the Mirena coil, which contains Levonorgestrol in a plastic tube, which is released into the uterus and is the most reliable form of contraceptive currently available. Sometimes the Mirena coil is called the IUS, which stands for Intra-Uterine System. It lasts for about 5 years.All IUDs should be inserted under proper local anaesthetic (in the form of injections into your cervix at the 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock positions) like the injections that you have for dental treatment. It the doctor or nurse offers you only lidocaine gel, go elsewhere for your birth control as it doesn't work and they'll end up scraping you off the ceiling.Alternately, if you meant UID as you wrote, this is a dosage frequency meaning once a day (uni in die), although it is more commonly written as QD or qd.
