  • yeah, its normal to have cramping and extra bleeding the firt few months...i've had mine for 1 1/2yrs and i cramped and bled off and on for the first 2 months or so, but have only had 2 periods and no cramping between periods since!

  • yes the first few months on the mirena your periods could be different than they were but if you are lucky like i was it will go away completely. I did have mine removed after 2 1/2 years though to go back on the pill sometimes sex would hurt and it made me break out and have super greasy skin and my hair would fall out alot more than usual

  • Normal. My first period on the Mirena was 2 weeks. Now after having it in for 4 months, I have no period.
