On mirena (levonorgestrel) for 8 months still having cramps w light irregular periods & period migraines is this normal? Started mirena (levonorgestrel) for period control. Thank you

Probably: By 6 months, ~95% of Mirena (levonorgestrel) users have decrease in duration and/or amount of menstrual blood flow; many stop getting their period. However, some women have irregular periods with cramps like you. Menstrual migraines likely related to estrogen decline with period, not mirena (levonorgestrel). Try ibuprofen/naproxen with periods. Dr may try estrogen with periods. If sxs worsen, see your dr to make sure iud in place. ...Read more

Can you still ovulate with pcos and irregular periods?

Still possible: Irregular periods are caused when your body's signals for ovulation and menstruation get confused by hormonal imbalances that can be related to your thyroid (TSH), pituitary (LH/FSH/prolactin), ovaries (estrogen/progesterone). Many external factors can affect the hormones: malnutrition, stress, obesity, for example. Diet and exercise can get ovulation back on track. See a GYN though. ...Read more

What causes heavy bleeding with clots and severe cramps unlike my periods cramps 3days prior to my regular 25days cycle periods.

Need evaluation: to determine the reason for your heavy bleeding with clots. Implantation bleeding is usually only a few drops of blood. If you have had unprotected sexual intercourse, you should be evaluated for sexually transmitted diseases (STD), which can cause changes in menstrual bleeding. Pregnancy (chemical or otherwise) is much less likely, but can do pregnancy test to be sure. ...Read more

Testing for ovulation, high fertility readings for many days. On cycle day 28 I got peak fertility reading in the am and light bleeding hours later.

Testing for ovulation, high fertility readings for many days. On cycle day 28 I got peak fertility reading in the am and light bleeding hours later.

Irrregular cycles?: Hard to answer because I don't know your menstrual pattern. Do you consistently have 28-30 day cycles? Cycle day 28 is very late to get a peak reading. That implies that you have irregular cycles. Some women have chronically high LH levels all the time (PCOS) and those kits don't work well for them. There is a slight drop in estrogen levels around the time of LH surge so that could explain bleed. ...Read more
