I'm 38 married with 3 kids, we are done with having children. Hubby is fixed. I got the mirena IUD put in november 4th because my gyno recommends it since I have really heavy, clotty periods (TMI sorry) So I usually get my period around the 27th of each month but i was a few days late since the mirena was put in. There is a huge difference from my "normal" period to what i have now, it's like a heavy spotting, i do have to wear a light thin pad, but as i said it's a huge difference. I've been reading alot of the mirena online and i have read ur first period with the mirena you could bleed for weeks or even months. My questions is did any of you have a long first period with the mirena? only reason i'm asking is because i'm been light bleeding for about 4 days or so and this weekend is my 15th wedding anniversary and hubby has surprised me with a weekend away so we are getting ready so I was hoping to have some fun with him (wink if u know what imean) with kids and all i never have the time etc...
