Mirena and spotting?

I've had it before, but I had one put in after my son was born, and sure enough, I've been spotting ever since. It's driving me (and my hubby) nuts! Does it ever go away, or do I get to deal with this until it's time to take it out? What are your experiences? (I know it's different for everyone)

  • I had mine put in last year and spotted lightly, on and off for a good 3 months if not a little longer. It was very irritating, but after it finally stopped, I haven't had a period since. I love it.

  • Well, I have an IUD without the hormones and although I don't spot, I used to. Another difference is that my flow is a lot heavier now.

    It should go away after a couple months. Your body is just getting used to having something hanging out of your cervix.
