2 months in & scared!

I had my mirena inserted 2 months ago. I was desperate! My periods are out of control lasting for 2 weeks at a time! I had 2 weeks on then 1 or 2 weeks off if I was lucky! I have high blood pressure & cannot take the pill. Then I started having weird bleeding with intercourse. I have not had children, but talked my doctor into letting me try the mirena. It was an extremaly painful insertion and I'm pretty good with pain! I had an internal ultrasound just after where they discovered a large uterine fibroid(sp?). From everything I had read the mirena seemed like a wonderful thing. I wish I had read this forum first!
I have not stopped bleeding yet! I had a full period & then constant light bleeding. I am having pretty bad acne, mood swings & lower back ache. I have calle dmy doctor and was told this was normal for the first 3 months while my body is adjusting. I'm very afraid of this getting worse, but at the same time if this doesn't work I don't know what i'm going to do. I just can't go back to periods all the time. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Should I wait it out til 3 or 6 months or just try something else. I am not going to be having any children of my own & I'm really thinking of taking drastic measure to restore my quality of life & sanity in my marriage! My poor husband doesn't know what to do with me!
thanks for any help or suggestions!
