Did anyone have heavy bleeding after Mirena IUD removal? adult content

I had my Mirena removed on Thurs (6/23) and started bleeding on Saturday (6/25). The bleeding has been very heavy but no clots or anything. Just wondering if this is normal after having the IUD removed.

  • I bled for only a couple hours afterwards..heavy, with bad cramps - that was it. Everyone is different, but apparently it's common to bleed like you've been after removal. I had mine replaced with Paragard in the same visit, so I don't know if that's why it was different for me. I had my Mirena for 3 years and it was HELL. Been on Paragard for just over year and I'm me again! Anyway, call your doctor if it doesn't ease up soon. Good luck.

  • Sounds normal to me, I bled for almost a week after.
