  • I am on it and I have only had random spotting. It isn't every month either. Some times its not even when my period is (I know because it has made my PMS UNBAREABLE for everyone). If you are conserned about it wait a week or two and take a test.

  • Perfectly normal. I had it for the full 5 years and went without a period for most of them. The Mirena works differently than the pill or the shot. You can test a week after you were due. Didn't your doctor go over the side effects with you? Not having your period while on the Mirena is one of the well known side effects of it.

  • sounds normal but since you get preg on both other contraceptives in the past you may want to check wih your dr and have them do a blood test.
