MIRENA USERS.....i need advice...

ok, so i got my IUD in last jan. only bled for 3 days,and then some spotting thru out the periods..i was also breastfeeding so i think thats why..anyway, ok so I do have spotting or LIGHT BLOOD the day after I have SEX...idk if that normal because ive never had an IUD. I get cramps during sex, like my lower stomach hurts, and my hubby says sometimes he can feel it poking him or sometimes its just the strings he feels...and now recently ive had weight gain and feel nauseated. idk...i just wanted to see if any moms have these problems and to kno if its normal.

  • AI didn't have any periods while I had my mirena in, which was for 4 years. DH said he felt the strings poking occassionally, and I would. I would call my OB/GYN to run the situation by them, in case it may have shifted and (worst case scenario, small percentage) it may be a tubal or something.

  • you could always to go get it checked out if you think it might be coming out of place. it sounds to me that sex is making your uterus aggravated...i would call the ob/gyn and get it checked out. it does have hormones and i don't get my period anymore, but i still get all the pms symptoms (cramps, bloat, sickness, etc.) so it may just be that if it is a recent thing and not something that has been going on for a long time.
