I got my Mirena about a year and a half ago. I've noticed that my body seems to "think" it's having a period multiple times a month. I'll notice that my uterus has moved up the way it does when I'm about to start a period (I'll look bloated) and then a few days later my stomach is flat as a pancake and then 10 days later the cycle repeats. Has anyone noticed this? I feel like my body is completely confused.
Mirena - Has anyone noticed their "cycle" multiple times in a month?

Hello. I experienced something similar with the Mirena IUD. I bleed light/med flow for the entire time I had it which was 16 months & 4 days. The Dr kept telling me it would stop & that this happened to some women whose bodies were a bit more sensitive to mild hormones. Well it never stopped not even for 1 day. I tried to be patient but having a non stop period with breast tenderness & even some menstrual cramping for over a year was just too much. Besides I didn't think I'd ever quit bleeding once I passed the 1yr mark. The crazy thing is that as soon as the mirena was removed I instantly quit bleeding & then I went 2yrs without having a single period. No OB/GYN could a find anything wrong tho so it was decided that I had shed so much lining bleeding that now there was lining left. I hope your body works it out soon bcuz the mirena really is a great form of birth control for so many women. Good luck
I am having the same exact problem. At first I thought I was crazy and I just forgot when my period came. Then I starting tracking it on a calendar and for the last year I've had multiple periods consecutively. I talked to my OBGYN about this and he has scheduled a stomach ultrasound, if nothing comes of that I am going to ask them to remove my IUD.
