Irregular periods: Normally people have little to no periods with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) but you can still have periods with it so it is not abnormal to have a period with it. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) can be in for 5 years. It is also possible that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) has come out make sure yours is still in by checking for the strings. And if you can feel the strings go into the doctor and have them look for the strings.
