  • I had Mirena for over 2 years and after the first two weeks I never had a period. I had some spotting when it got inserted and a period-like flow the following week then nothing. I would definately get it looked at, maybe it was placed properly or slipped. Good luck!

  • When mine first went in, the initial period lasted quite a while, then it stopped. It gets everything out, usually not everything is lost during a cycle... but with the Mirena it can all come out. This takes some time. If it still hurts or doesn't stop soon, I'd have them check it.
