Mirena Coil Power Plate

Mirena expulsion?: Without a picture it is impossible to say for sure, a consult may be required. But this is concerning to me for your mirena having come out. I would use condoms consistently and make an appointment with the provider who placed mirena as soon as you can ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) coil removed. Cycles since 28, 32, 31 days. Currently still waiting for afthis month and I'm on day 36. Tests are negative. What's going on?
Late period: Not 100% I understand your question. It sounds like you are saying you had 3 approximately 30 days cycles after iud removal and now this one is about a week late. If your pregnancy test is negative then this is just a late cycle which is very common. Most women will go back to normal quickly. The next step depends on your goals. Cycle regulation vs conception.

Not usually: Usually there may be some cramping after placement & with menstruation, but not 'severe' pain.

I had the Mirena coil fitted 10 days ago and last night noticed some orange spotting... is this normal? I bled for 7 days after getting Mirena
Adjustment changes: Most likely, the uterus/body is making minor adjustments related to the IUD. The Prostaglandins (pain mediators) associated with semen also add to any discomfort sometimes. If you are comfortable feeling for the IUD strings, you should do that to confirm continued proper placement of the IUD. Otherwise, especially if the symptoms are persistent, get with your OB/GYN to confirm placement. ...Read more

Nothing: A 'tilted' uterus us normal. Like saying your left handed. 30 percent of women have uteruses that tilt 'backwards'. Experience helps s practitioner work with uteruses in different positions.

Mirena (levonorgestrel) cant helpendo: Endometriosis on the pelvic surfaces typically causes pain in the time prior to and partly into the menstrual flow. Endometriosis that is in the muscle of the uterus (also called adenomyosis) causes pain during menstruation as well as heavy bleeding. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud will only help with the adenomyosis near the iud and not the endometriosis farther away. ...Read more
Unlikely: Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud has a tail that you will not see which your doctor will use someday to remove. It does not have coils like the essure system. Iud's can cause cramping and discomfort, but very rare with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. You should see your doctor for an exam with possible ultrasound to see if it is indeed in the appropriate place. ...Read more
