I had my Mirena IUD inserted on Dec 12th 2013 and in the beginning it was great I had zero issues, but about 8 months into having it I started having bad acne and every month a week before my period I would have horrible yeast infection symptoms! I went to many doctors and had tests done for all kinds of infections over and over and everything came back negative, I was fine, but it doesn't feel like it. Now recently for the last 5 months or so I've been having prolonged periods that are very heavy up to about 12 days. I was told with a Mirena IUD I'm supposed to have a lack of period or none at all, and in the beginning that was the case! Is there something wrong? I had it looked at and the device is apparently in the perfect place, but I don't know what else to do. At this point I just want to remove it :(. I'm only 20 years old now and I have not had any kids. I was pregnant once but had an abortion the day I had the Mirena inserted. The doctor said it healed perfectly and there were no complications, but maybe it could have something to do with my issues?
