  • yup it will be irregular while your body adjusts to the hormones. It could be 2 months, or it could be 6 it depends on your body, but eventually it will stop. After I had mine put in it took 3 months, then I didn't get anything besides occasional spotting every few months. I loved it.

  • It's normal. I spotted for around 8 -10 weeks after insertion of my mirena. It lightened up significantly after the first week or 2, the rest of the time was just enough here and there to be annoying. I could go a couple days of nothing and then spot a little. So i just wore small mini pads that whole time. It normal.
