I am on Mirena and have been bleeding.


Answer by  Bobinski (1652)

Bleeding or spotting are very common when taking Mirena. Your periods will also probably change. You might have a lot of bleeding or you might just have spotting or you might not have a period at all. Be sure to see your physician a month or so after Mirena has been inserted and have regular yearly check-ups.

Bleeding, due to an altered bleeding pattern, can result in spotting, irregular, or heavy bleeding during the first three to six months. If heavy bleeding continues contact your heatlhcare provider.

Yes, you certainly can have bleeding while on Mirena. Mirena will likely cause periods to cease but in some women it does not completely take them away.

You can have spotting for a few months but you should not have heavy bleeding. Some women have heavier periods and some women have no periods at all. If you have severe cramping with bleeding, call your doctor

The estrogen dose in Mirena may not be high enough. Breakthrough bleeding is a very common occurrence among birth control pills, patches, and injections. If the estrogen amount is not high enough for your body, you will experience breakthrough bleeding.
