  • I bled like that for the first 4 months, Light bleeding mostly with really heavy periods those months. Then it went away. I have almost no period now and some months I don't even have one.

  • I bled for about 4 months (mainly spotting, but too much to have sex often). Dh would joke that it was the best BC ever because it kept us from having sex!

  • I had the mirena i have to be honest with you. I HATED IT, I had so many problems on it that needless to say my tubes are tied and we are done having babies. I bleed for 2 months that is normal you bleeding. The best advice i can give you is google mirena side efforts and read EVERYTHING then go from there. If you want to speak more personal about this feel free to PM me.

  • I HATE THOSE THINGS!! It is horribly different for each person. I spotted every day after I got that stupid thing in! I am not sure if it is normal to bleed that much, I would call and ask your Dr. or nurse, and ask them to make sure. If they say it's fine, I wouldn't worry about it, but if they it's all good, I wouldn't worry about it, it should go away! They say hey, some people stop having their period bla bla bla, I didn't and I never had a regular flow, it was just always there. not to mention, i was in pain off and on from it, sex wasn't great, and it stabbed him.. Good luck!

  • its normal i bled for about 6 weeks after i got mine in. heavier than spotting and lighter than my normal periods. i've had mine in for 3 years now and i don't get any bleeding at all now. which is nice but i do get pms. so i take some midol and all is good. if you're not sure i would see your doctor. you should see your doctor to have it checked to make sure you haven't rejected it. i also had mine put in at my 6 week check up after having my daughter.
