  • My first period after I had my Mirena taken out was very heavy and clotted. It was just my body shedding the lining it had built up. It will go back to normal.

  • I didn't experience that, but I also had the Mirena replaced with the nonhormonal Paragard IUD in the same visit. Durno if that would be why I didn't, probably not, but who knows. It doesn't sound fun, though. =/

  • I do think that a lot of bleeding can be normal at first. If it is too a point where it is effecting how you feel though, i would speak to your dr again.

  • when i had my Mirena removed, i had horrible bleeding, and some of the worst cramps ever, and over all i just felt like i'd been run over by a truck, but they told me to expect some semi severe bleeding and cramping. So i think it's pretty common

  • you just had a device taken out of a major organ. Of course it's going to bleed, yes it's normal. Some may bleed more than others, but it's normal.
