I think it would be: very unlikely that any menstrual irregularity you are experiencing now would be related to the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD that was removed 9 months ago. Are you now using another form of contraception? Is there any possibility you could be pregnant? One of the first things I would do is check a pregnancy test. If negative, and no other symptoms, perhaps wait another month, and then contact your doctor.
