Mirena ?/ problems

I have had the mirena for 9 wks now. I know there is suppose to be spotting, but to be honest, I have spotted for a while, along w/ getting my period and now I have been bleeding for 2 wks straight, almost 3 wks. My dd is 5 months and between this and my post partum bleeding, I havent really gotten much of a break from this. Is this normal, or does this not agree w/ me? They say its 99.9% effective, well let me tell you, its working 100% for me!!! UGH!!
