Is progestin for 10 days a month or the mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD better for heavy menstrual bleeding? 

Is progestin for 10 days a month or the mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD better for heavy menstrual bleeding? 

Mirena (levonorgestrel): While there aren't any good head to head studies comparing each method, my patients have much better results with Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. The Progesterone in it is slowly released the whole month and is more targeted to the uterus than taking 10 days of progestin pills.

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.
