Anyone have the mirena IUD and having probs?

I have 2 children. I have been on the Mirena IUD for a year now. The first 6months I had constant bleeding... well actually it was on and off. I also had bad cramps. The bleeding finally stopped. I had no bleeding for 6 months. Now I am having headaches, just had a UTI (which I usually never have those.. but have had 3 since on this thing), now I am having bleeding and my UTI just ended yesterday.... still a little uncomfy.
My hubby is Military and just got home from being away for 5months. On new years eve we had a lot of sex... and I woke up with what felt like a UTI. I am waiting on the dr to call back... but it is the base Drs and they can take forever.

Any help or advice would be great! Thanks ladies!

  • I don't have problems like that, but I do have problems. Weight gain, WEIRD patterns (lots of bleeding then no bleeding like you), all sorts of weird stuff, but I like it none the less. To me the benefits outweigh the other types of BC I've tried!
