In brief: Call your doctor

It sounds like the Mirena (levonorgestrel) was helping your bleeding, and now that it has come out your period is very heavy and painful.
It sounds like the bleeding is flowing like a faucet. Call your doctor - it sounds like you need to be seen and possibly have blood work done.

In brief: Heavy periods

There are multiple options.
Hormonal treatments such as birth control pills, Progesterone treatments and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud are effective reversible treatments that will help many people. There is also a drug called Lysteda that contains no hormones which will help others. If you are done having children discuss the option of an endometrial ablation. In some cases a hysterectomy will be needed.
