How long did it take your period to start after the IUD Mirena was removed?

I had my IUD removed Feb.11th. I bled a little after the removal. Shouldn't I have started my period already?

  • I bled for a few days after it was removed. Then me and my husband had unprotected sex a week and half later. A few days after we had sex I had the brown stuff for 2-3 days. Do i count the first day of my cycle from the brown or from when I bled from the removal?

  • from the brown...the bleeding from the removal, from my understanding, happens with everyone when they have it removed.
