Anyone have troubles after getting mirena, and if so did you get it taken out?

I got mirena put in after having the baby, and its been over a year and i am constantly spotting or on my period. Its like 80% of the month, with short little breaks in between. It is driving me crazy!! and bf is constantly telling me to go get it removed. Also, i developed pretty bad acne, witch i never had a problem with until now, im not sure if its the mirena, but i cant think of any other reason since its never happened before.

  • i had it about a year and started having bad cramping after the first 3 months on it i never had a period again. i got it removed almost a year ago i still do not have any period so therefore im not ovulating and my body produces no estrogen. I reall think it messed me up im only 22 and never had such problems. If i were you i would get it taken out

  • I have had it for 3yrs & going to get it out. My issues are different from yours though.

  • I had it 3 months. I was in pain the whole time, felt pregnant the whole time and i'd bleed alot. I finally got my doctor to agree to an ultrasound and low and behold, it was embedded. I had surgery the next day and thankfully because it almost made a hole out of my uterus. I had a miscarriage a few months later that they believe to be caused by the damage of mirena.
