Seems OK: I'm not sure how long you've had the Mirena, (levonorgestrel) but a light spotting us a normal finding after the initial placement. Breastfeeding has little at all to do with the spotting. If this has persisted for more than a couple if months, you may want to check in with your OB on good placement and comparability. I don't see a problem to worry about here.

Consult G.Y.N. docto: This little bleeding may be due to position oIUD Marina. It needs to be checked. Consult your doctor who can decide the cause of vaginal bleeding may reset IUD .
