Periods

I am having a few problems with regards to my period. I am almost 48 and have been sterilised. My periods are regular but last for more than 7 days and are mostly really dark blood kind of clots. Is this normal. My GP wants to fit the coil.

Thank you, Dawn

Re: Periods

this can be normal and a hormonal intra uterine system such as the mirena is a good treatment for long and heavy periods. I would suggest going back and seeing your GP again. there are other treatments , you can get more information on heavy periods from here
