I had my mirena taken out after 4 months mAin issues pain & bleeding. I started the pill same day but have been bleeding since (10 days) is this ok?
IUD removal: If the IUD was pushed into the cervical canal, bleeding and pain would occur. The IUD may also have not prevented a pregnancy, which might account for the persistent bleeding (10 days). If pregnant, it could be in your tube, so get a serum HCG test to make sure about possible pregnancy. If negative, stop the pills and start a new package five days later. Take them the same time each evening. ...Read more

Bleeding on Mirena (levonorgestrel) is highly variable.: Most bleed and spot for the first few weeks and then periods dramatically lighten with 50% not having a period by 1 year. There is wide variations in the bleeding pattern typical of Progesterone only methods. Irregular bleeding is expected and does not mean the iud does not work. If you are concerned please schedule an iud check with your obgyn. ...Read more
I've been on the mirena for about 7 months with no periods now all of a sudden I'm bleeding? Why? Had rough sex 2days ago as well when this started
Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud for 7 months. Happily NO bleeding/spotting since insertion. 2 days ago began bleeding very heavily. Normal? Possible causes?
Unprotected sex?: If you have not been in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship, both of whom are disease-free, get checked for a sexually transmitted disease. Also, an exam can detect if you have irritation of the cervix, which can sometimes bleed. Any new meds or supplements? If so, & not prescribed, stop. Can be other causes, & if no chance of std & problem happens again, get checked. If fever, pain-ER! ...Read more

If I have bleeding during sex, could I be pregnant? Been trying for months now after mirena (levonorgestrel) taken out in Feb. Some symptoms, but Neg each month late.
Does not: Sound like you are pregnant. Bleeding after sex has nothing to do with pregnancy. It usually has to do with rough sex with micro tears. It takes the average couple 6 months to conceive and usually. Bit longer after a progesterone IUD has been removed so you are within normal and not showing signs of infertility. Relax and enjoy sex and just let it happen ...Read more

Got my mirena (levonorgestrel) put in 3 months ago and im still bleeding sometimes with a oderless brown discharge. No cramping is this normal?
Yes, it likely is: ~95% of Mirena (levonorgestrel) users will note a decrease in their duration and/or amount of menstrual blood flow, and many will even stop getting their period (which is normal). However, these changes can take about 3-6 months to occur. Prior to this, it is not unusual to have an increase in the amount, duration or frequency of your periods. See your dr asap if you cannot feel iud strings or bad cramps develop. ...Read more
Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD for 7 months. NO bleeding. 2 days ago VERY heavy bleed (still bleeding) & thrush like symptoms. Possible cause/s? Normal or concern?
It is common to have: irregular bleeding in the first 3 months, sometimes heavy. However once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) has been assimilated periods become much lighter, often times disappearing altogether. This is a desirable side effect for most women. However, if you start to have menstrual flow again and it continues like a torrent for a month or 2, it is possible that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) has been dislodged. Very low likelihood but ...Read more

I've had mirena (levonorgestrel) in for 6 months. I was having light regular periods but now I have light spotting/bleeding all the time for the last month. What to do?
Distinct change: I like to see my patients for an exam when they report a distinct change in their bleeding patterns. Absent or light periods is the normal. If this changes then I like to do a quick exam to make sure it is in the proper location. I also test for chlamydia and other infections if the patient has a new partner. ...Read more
