Gynaecology Appointment at R Hospital
Rachael had to wait for an hour before being seen as the clinic was running behind schedule. Dr A asked Rachael about Norethisterone. Rachael said GP had told her to reduce Norethisterone to 1x 5mg/day from day 5 to day 26 of her menstrual cycle. Dr A asked Rachael how her periods were and Rachael confirmed that they were still heavy. Dr A said the Mirena Coil had been in for over a year now and should be working correctly. Dr A advised Rachael to have a scan to see if the coil was still present. He said it could be replaced if the coil has fallen out, or if it's still there, Rachael may need to stop taking Norethisterone for a short time to test if coil is working correctly. Appointment for scan made on: 23/06/11.
