Normal: This is normal bleeding behavior on the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. It can be a blessing or a curse. If you need predictability, then maybe the copper iud is better, though some women experience increased length of periods with the copper iud. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) is nice because it typically decreases amount of bleeding, but the sporadicness can be bothersome. Must weigh benefits and drawback and decide what's best.
