I had my copper IUD replaced with Mirena because the copper cause too painful of cramps during my periods. Now that I have gotten Mirena in, my cramping has lessened dramatically. However, I have been bleeding for 3.5 weeks. I had it inserted and didn’t have bleeding for the first week, except maybe a little bit of spotting. After that, the bleeding hasn’t stopped. I just don’t know if this is normal or if I should get it checked out. Has anyone else experienced this?
Yes I have. I had mine inserted nov 20 and have had maybe 2 wks without bleeding. I just went to my follow up appointment and now have to get an ultrasound to check for placement. The CNM couldn’t find the strings. Ugg. But I am told the bleeding can last 6 wks.
