Mirena for too long

I have had Mirena for a little over 7 years. I know I need to get it removed but that is not possible for me right now. Lately. I have been experiencing strange periods. They are bright red one day, practically black the next. I will have two or three days that go from heavy to light and then disappear. Two days later, it starts all over again. I thought this might be normal at first, especially since I didn't have a cycle for almost three years before getting Mirena inserted. However, this has been going on for two to three months. I also have cramping in the lower abdominal area that does not coincide with the bleeding. Intercourse is also painful at times and I have experienced cramping and bleeding afterwards. I considered menopause but I am only 31. I also know I am not pregnan...

mirena & primolut n

I got the mirena put in 2 weeks ago and have been bleeding heavy since. Today my doctor put me on primolut n. I just wanted to know what is actually going to do? Will it stop my bleeding ? ## Hello, Tam! How are you? That is pretty common with the Mirena, though not everyone experiences heavy bleeding. But hopefully yes, the doctor has prescribed that to try to help balance your hormones back out, so the bleeding stops. The typical side effects of the Primolut N may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and PMS-like symptoms. The only way to see if it will help is by actually trying it. If the bleeding doesn't stop, you'll need to return to your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi, I got the mirena IUD inserted last week and i am currently still ble...

dicuss mirena

i have had a mirena in for 5 years and now it has to be removed i am 54 years old a bit scared having this done as when i had it put in it was in hospital. do you think i will get any more periods after it has been removed? ## Hello, Karen! How are you? No one can really say for sure, it depends on whether or not your post menopausal. Even if you are, there is still a chance that you may have one more period, just due to the hormonal change of having it removed and possible prior build up of the uterine lining. You may also experience drowsiness, dizziness and weight changes, since having it removed, as listed by the FDA. Does anyone have experience with this scenario?
