I know the Dr said to expect occasional spotting for a while but this is ridiculous... Ive had problems keeping track of my periods so I downloaded an app on my phone to track it. Since I downloaded it, Ive had my period from the 29th to the 5th (7 days) and then (8 days later) it happens again on the 14th to today (still going...) 5 days later. At first I thought itd be a light spotting between periods, but its definitely a full blown flow. Before merena my periods were pretty regular 28 day cycles lasting 5-7 days. I read a lot about spotting for the first couple months, and not having periods after the first year, but this is crazy and frustrating!
Anyone else experience this?

My DS is a little more than 9 months and I got it when he was about 8 weeks old. I bled for the first 4 weeks after getting the Mirena, then I haven't had any bleeding whatsoever. None. Not even a period. It was like somebody flipped a switch--one day I was bleeding, the next it just had stopped and never started back up. I guess I'm just lucky, but it's kind of unnerving. I keep buying pregnancy tests just to make sure that I don't end up on that show I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant, lol.
