I had my mirena iud put in last friday (9/11/09), It was painful. I am still bleeding, I quit for about 2 days... tried to have sex & now I am bleeding quite heavy again. Why? Is this normal? I had an IUD placed for medical reasons, not for birth control reasons. I have endometreosis & dysmenorrea & that is why my doctor recommended this.

I just got my Mirena on Tuesday. I am not bleeding, I haven't bled at all. I am just discharging. However, the cramps and pain have not stopped. Periodically through the day, I feel like someone has kicked me. I also can still feel the strings. It feels like I have a needle in there.
I go back on the 26th for my 4 wk check up.
