levonorgestrel Mirena

Last month I got inserted levonorgestrel Mirena to resolve the prolonged bleeding issue ( last 2 years) and still with bleeding problem. Bleeding continues for 11 days. Loette is suggested for three months. to reduce the bleeding Pause MF given but the bleeding issue not yet resolved. Please suggest. ## Hello, Kavitha! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Unfortunately, the Mirena IUD doesn't resolve bleeding issues for everyone that tries it, as a matter of fact, it can cause irregular or prolonged bleeding in some women. So yes, you may be better of with oral contraceptive tablets, since they usually contain both estrogens and progesterone and can better balance your hormones. Is there anything else I can help with?

Pink/light red pill with capital S then 62 on other side

A small round pink/light red pill with an italic capital S on one side and the number 62 on the other side. The pill is a chalky white on the inside and the coating scratches away. I'm thinking it may be some sort of painkiller? ## It is not listed in any of our prescription drug resources. While there is a chance that it is a very new tablet, it makes me suspect that it may be something available over the counter. There is also a chance that it could be a foreign medication. Can you provide anymore information? Was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere? ## It's a birth control pill called Seasonal (Levonorgestrel - ethinyl estradiol) ## No don't worry like that it's only a contraceptive pill!!
