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?
Im so frustrated. ... I got the iud put in on August 1st ... I got it not for the birth control but to stop / slow my periods down (i have a like a 5% chance of getting pregnant again ) so its been almost 7 months and im still bleeding heavily like this month i started on the 5th (of February) and i am still currently bleeding an having to use super plus tampons and overnight pads at the same time ... Im so freaking tired of bleeding and then last week all of a sudden i stop bleeding for like almost 24 hours then i had sexual intercourse and i start bleeding heavily again and it was also painful during sex ... So today i scheduled for a consultation for march 1st to have it removed ... And im leaning towards going back on the depo even though i gained alot of weight last time i was on it , but it stopped my periods completely. ... Im hoping i wont have the same side effects as i did 10 + years ago while being pn the depo shot ... Please is anyone one else experiencing the same thing as im going through while on the iud ???
I am going through the same issue, I had mine placed back on Jan 25 and no period for 2 weeks I thought I was going to be one of the lucky ones that have no period at all. I was wrong Feb 13, I started my period the flow was not that bad compared to what I used to get every month. The thing is that now I have to wear a damn pad everyday since I spot all the time especially when I go pee. What worries me is the color changes it goes through sometimes its dark brown and then an hour later bright red. I called my provider and scheduled an appt, considering that the only reason I got it placed was due to my heavy menstrual cycle and low blood count.
