How painful is mirena (levonorgestrel) coil removal? When will my periods return after having mirena (levonorgestrel) removed?

See below: If the doctor can see the IUD string on exam, its usually not at all painful to have it removed. If the string is not visible, there is a little more discomfort because the doctor will have to reach up inside the uterus to grab the IUD or the strong. Most women start having their period within 4 weeks of having the IUD removed. Frequently there is a heavy period quite soon after removal.
