I had my Merina inserted 11th April 2011 and have had bleeding and spotting everyday since, I don'e seem to have any side effects as yet, just maybe a little weight gain, how long should I bleed for, I was told it could be like this for 3 to 6 months, but I dont know if you should be bleeding all this time...
I have heard of this hapening a lot... three of my friends have the mirena and 2 of them had it taken out after 3 and 4 monthes of heavy flow.
I have an IUD that is for 10 years and has no hormones so it doesnt mess with your natural cycle. and it has been awesome.
I think that youneed to talk to your doctor about this problem again because the reason I opted for the 10 year IUD is because A: my insurance ipayed for it and B: tmy doc says out of 100 people he puts a mirena in almost 50 percent he takes back out..
But the symtoms can go away and then youll b good talk your doc
