I had Mirena put in two and a half weeks ago. 5 days after insertion I started bleeding, the same as a period. It's been 6 days and I'm still bleeding. The flow has been the same for the whole week, hasn't slowed or become heavier. Is this normal? And how long should I expect to bleed before maybe calling the doctor? Thanks!
Your symptoms are normal. The most common side effects of Mirena are absence of periods, intermenstrual bleeding and spotting. If the bleeding gets very heavy and does not stop then see your doctor.
