What are some reasons for bleeding like a heavy period after a mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD is removed?

Mirena (levonorgestrel) Progestin withdrawal causes the bleeding. You'll go back to your normal heavier cycles now that the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is out. The homone in Mirena (levonorgestrel) lightens the cycle.
Normal period heavy. While you used Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud you enjoyed benefit of lighter periods... Good. Now without it your "natural" period is heavier than desired. You have choices. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud, birth control pills, lysteda; or if you've completed family consider endometrial ablation--a 10 minute outpatient treatment that permanently set you free from heavy periods and the impact on your lifestyle. The choice is yours.

Patience. It may take a while for your menstrual cycle to return to normal. I would monitor this and then report to your doctor if your cycles do not regulate over the next few months. If you do not desire pregnancy consider birth control to regulate your cycles now.

Can u get pregnant right after mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD removal? I got it removed 4 days ago and now I am bleeding could it b my period coming that soon or?

Unlikely, but..... You can get pregnant immediately after removal of an iud, depending where you are in your cycle. That being said, if you are only 4 days post removal, it is too early to check a pregnancy test. Additionally, your periods may be irregular just after removing the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. I recommend you wait a week, then check a urine pregnancy test. Best of luck!

Got my Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD in February 2015, got my first period 2 weeks ago, lasted 5 days and I started bleeding again 6 or 7 days ago and still am. WHY?

Nature of the Mirena (levonorgestrel) The Mirena (levonorgestrel) acts with Progestin, a synthetic hormone that thins the lining of the uterus. The lining is what is shed as a period when you are naturally cycling. When it is kept thin it tends to crack and breakthrough leading to usually light bleeding or spotting. In time it should diminish and resolve though it can take a couple months. Often women get no periods after a period of time with Mirena (levonorgestrel).
