How bad was it? Merinna? Maybe TMI

I got the merinna IUD 2 1/2 weeks ago. I hadnt had a period yet and I didnt bleed after I got it. Now I have some brownish blood coming out. So my question is how bad was your first period after getting the IUD.

  • Very heavy for me and dark brownish blood, it was also the first period I had after having my daughter which was 6 months after having her. But in general my IUD caused heavy period with darker blood.

  • I got the Mirena put in, in January. I didn't bleed for like 2wks and the all of a sudden I started bleeding and have been bleeding since then. So I don't really know.

  • I bled for about a month on and off after my IUD was in. It was 6 weeks after my son was born. It was brownish....after my daughter was born...she is the oldest...I didn't have any irregular periods when my IUD was put in....but it was put in a few months after she was born.....

  • Yeah....I had mine put in in July,I think, and I didn't bleed right after but when I got my 1st period it felt like it lasted forever! They say it's suppose to give you shorter lighter periods but I haven't seen one yet!

  • I haven't had the IUD put in but my dr said it was pretty much the same as the shot and with that i bled for 2 weeks strait and then nothing for almost 3 years and i only had it for 9 months so i guess everyone is different.

  • i had a heavy period both after my son was born (7 weeks after) and a heavy period a few weeks after i got my mirena put in. Now my periods are very odd. They usually are lighter and last fewer days, sometimes they are only one day, but once a week. It really messes with my hormones...
