I have the mirena (levonorgestrel). I still have irregular periods. Some with huge blood clots, other times just spotting. Is my body rejecting the mirena (levonorgestrel)/?

In brief: Unlikely...
When did you get the Mirena (levonorgestrel) placed? It is very common to have irregular bleeding (light or heavy) for 3-6 months after placement.
Almost 70% of women will have very light periods or no bleeding at all 12 months after placement. If you had Mirena (levonorgestrel) placed >6 months ago and are still miserable, definitely discuss with your doctor! good luck!

If you hang in there, I might wait another 1-2 mos before considering taking it out... but you should discuss w your MD! Good luck!
