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. Track cycles over next few months. ...Read more

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

Now if your string is up in your cervix, it might be that no one could find the string. ...Read more

Mirena (levonorgestrel) cant helpendo: Endometriosis on the pelvic surfaces typically causes pain in the time prior to and partly into the menstrual flow.

Could the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil be causing the pain in my pelvis?

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

Bleeding with big clots after having mirena (levonorgestrel) coil removed. Normal?

Bleeding with big clots after having mirena (levonorgestrel) coil removed. Normal?

Most likely: While the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is in it causes the periods to be much lighter than what is normal for you. Once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed then the periods will go back to whatever is your normal. Also in your late 40's it is common to have heavy and irregular periods as you get closer to menopause. Many women will use Mirena (levonorgestrel) at that age just to get the periods to be lighter. ...Read more
