I'm just curious how long it took all of y'alls bodies to adjust to the Mirena IUD?  I had mine put in January 28th.  I have bled 40 out of 60 days and am about to lose my mind, lol.  So I'm looking for ladies who had similiar experiences to tell me that it will all be over soon, LOL.....please.....I hope......LOL

I think I bled for about 2 to 3 weeks, then had some spotting, then never had a period again.

So jealous, lol.  3 months is what my ob said, just hang in there for 3 months and things will get better but this is getting ridiculous lol.

I stopped bleeding the day after I got mine, never had a problem, had it removed for personal reasons. I bled for 10mos on the depo though! Good luck!

I would say about 3-4 months.  I didn't bleed at all, but had really bad stomach cramps when I first got it in and bad headahes.  I've had it a little over 2 years and love it.  Haven't had a period since it was put in.

I asked my Dr. about this before deciding on the Mirena and she vehemently was against it.  Said she took more implanons out than she put in!

i didn't have another choice of bc at the time, and my doc thought it would be life threatening for me to get pregnant again. three months i brought the little calander back.  bled all but two days.  told me to give it three more months. same crap.  i had it removed at 9 months, and had paragard put in, it expelled in two months, and i researched and researched, and finally got the mirena a couple of months ago.  the probs are minor compared to others i've had, but i DEF don't "love my bc"...kwim?
