Not unusual: Mirena (levonorgestrel) can cause irregular periods, sometimes heavy and sometimes light. That is not unusual. Give it time and it should improve on its own.

Shouldn't: The timing of ovulation is not known to affect the extent of bleeding in a specific cycle. Your cycles can vary over time and from month to month.
A 47-year-old member asked:

Does norethisterone change your period cycle?

Dr. Sheila Goodman
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Varies: Norethisterone is a progestin, similar to the progestone your body makes after ovulation. How it affects your period depends on when you take it and for how long. If you take it throughout the month it will normally make your period lighter. If you take it after ovulation, it may delay your bleeding. If you just take for a couple of days, you're likely to bleed after stopping it.
