  • I know i didn't have my period the entire time I was on Mirena. I didn't get cramping either. I would def have a doctor check it out.

  • I bled for about 10 straight weeks after insertion of my Mirena. More light spotting towards the end. I haven't had a period since and I have had mine 4 yrs. It can take up to 12 weeks for your body to adjust and you can have bleeding for up to that timeframe. Goodluck!
