I just got the Mirena done may 22 2017 and I am bleeding off and on sometimes it's light and brown and sometimes it's heavy and brown. How long will it go on and when can you have sex?
hi! i've had the mirena IUD for 6 years now. got it switched out last year. you can have spotting/bleeding for a week or two & then occasional spotting between periods for the first 3-6 months! also, they say wait at least 24 hours after insertion to have sex. hope this helps!
