  • My cycle took 8 months to get back to normal after I had the Mirena removed. It was all over the place for a while and very annoying!

  • I had mine for a year and half, and i had a very light period every 4 weeks, it was less than a day long and i would never be able to soak a tampon, so when I had it removed it was right away normal period stuff!

  • I had mine in for three years. The doctor told me it would take about three weeks to three months before my period came back.

    Yeah it took all of THREE DAYS. Apparently, I'm a hormone killer because that was not normal.
