I'm going in to year 2 of my second one and I very rarely get a period. But when I do I seem to notice the cramps more.
I started to get periods after about 2-2.5 years, and it continued til I had it removed at the 5 year mark. They were always really light and mild. I might have used 2-3 tampons during each period, tops. The reason I had the Mirena in the first place was to alleviate bad periods, so it did its job as far as that was concerned. Cramping was nonexistent.
I experienced cramping always had my period with it they were a little lighter. I had it removed to have another child then got my tubes tied and then NovaSure® Endometrial Ablation done. No more periods it is awesome, only problem now is not knowing when my moody time is it just creeps up on me lol.
