Mirena (levonorgestrel): Mirena (levonorgestrel) can cause irregular bleeding. If you have been bleeding for 18 months straight in spite of other treatment, mirena (levonorgestrel) may not be the right fit for you and you should have it removed. If you still have bleeding, your doctor will work up other possibilities.
