I've had mirena in place since after having DD. so its been in since march of 2009. my periods never slowed or anything. But i have always had consistent periods, until now. 


Lately, meaning like in the past 5 weeks i have had a period, or spotting or whatever it's called, every week. and its not just like a spot of blood , no it's like I have to use tampons for a day or two. or three, and then it stops but a week later it's back. I have been having some cramping too but it's not anything more than just premenstrual cramping.  


This can't be normal, and it's getting annoying. anyone been through this with the iud?

there is no guarantees with mirena because of the hormones. everyone reacts differently to them. even if you did wellon BC before pregnancy your hormones shift so much after birth that your body may never be the same as it once was. I have a paragard. I bled heavily once a month for 3 months and spoted the first 6 weeks. Now I have a normal period and no issues whatsoever.

Same here, it messed me up big time and they had to do a complete hysterectomy on me! I was all scarred up and had cycts and embedded in 2 years! Never do the strange things in there! I call Tampons (Stoppers) cause it does stop it up and should come out! I even had a friend to die from them (toxic shock syndrom) I used them when going swimming and that was it! Good luck and get that thing out!
