Is this normal, after merina insert??

So I just got my merina put in 2 hours ago, came home and went pee and had a pretty big clot come this normal? I usually wear tampons all the time (i even set my alarm to get up at night and change them) so I have no clue what normal is lol...I do feel a little crampy but nothing bad or intolderable. Thanks! :)

  • Some clotting can be normal even with a normal period, it just indicates heavy bleeding. If the clotting continues for more than a couple days or they are bigger around than a quarter, give your ob/gyn a call and see what they say. I had some clotting after I had the Mirena inserted but it was minimal and only lasted a day or two.

  • I had clotting for 6 months and my OBGYN did nothing about it. She said it was normal. GL!

  • I got it removed after 6 months. It wasn't worth what I went through. The clotting was just one of the side effects I had.

  • I had some clotting for a couple of days. My mirena so far has been great. I have not had a period since about a week after insertion. No crazy side effects like I did on the pill or patch.

  • @ Mom - You're lucky. I was on my period the entire time I had it, and I gained 60 lbs. Not fun!

  • Razelda, so did the clotting stop or lessen after 6 months? Thanks for the answers both of you! :)
