  • Yes, I use Mirena. I had it placed 6wks after my second daughter was born. So almost 2 years now. Its been great because I haven't had a period at all! But...about a month ago, I did notice spotting for a day, bloating, cravings, and cramping. The bloating and cravings have not left and I have gained 5lbs, in this last past month alone! And also started spotting again, only for a day though. I am confused as well. I know that spotting is common when using Mirena, but hmmm...? What is your question exactly?
