I started my period two days before getting my Mirena inserted. I have now been bleeding for almost 5 weeks. It will nearly stop or seem to stop then start again within a day. Small pieces of what appear to be tissue are in the blood, which is a lot brighter red than my normal period. Is this normal?
Yes, some women can have prolonged bleeding after Mirena is inserted. Please see the link below ... it has reviews that you may find useful.
I see i'm two years late, but I'm hoping somebody will respond with an update of how they are doing! I got my IUD inserted on May 4/16. In a few weeks it'll be six months of having this and I have been spotting every day since it was inserted minus a four day break that randomly happened a few weeks ago. I am sick of wearing a tampon every day and I'm wondering if it is worth it. I wanted to give this at least six months as that was the timeframe I was given for a regular bleeding. Any thoughts?
