Mirena
I posted a question before, about me bleeding for a month. Well, I' m still bleeding. I know you said some women bleed for several months. But will it ever stop? Should I have the Mirena removed now, or should I just give it a few more months to allow my body to get used to it?

I told my husband that you said it' s fine to still have sex while I' m bleeding. But we both agree that we' re not comfortable with the idea of making love while I have my period, so it' s been a while that we have done it.

My other concern is that I am anaemic. I' m currently not taking anything for it. With all this blood loss, will it cause more health problems?

You will have to decide whether you want to remove the Mirena or not, but the majority of women have spotting/irregular bleeding for up to 9 months after insertion. If you are having small amounts of spotting, this probably will not worsen the anaemia significantly.
