... months were okay but the last 3 have been hell. When I went to get a check up on the strings I had to rush to get an emergency ultrasound because they couldnt find my strings so they said the iud is fine but my strings were curled up in my uterus. And I was reading when that happens it has to be surgical remived. But anyways. Last month I had a full blown period like I never had a period after my baby just that purpl spooting blood type. And never even spooted with the mirena till last month and it was super heavy. And one and half month prior to that ive been experiencing excruciating cramping pain.and now I still have the painting painI want to take it out but I'm too scared to for meeting of the the stuff that happens when the mirena is taking out. Is this normal or what should I do?
