I’m confused….they knew it was imbedded and didn’t take it out??

I have a Mirena and for the first 4-5 months I had on and off bleeding which was more like spotting and very light. The year after that spotting maybe every 2-3 months. Now, 2 years later, I rarely spot. Sometimes very deep penetration seems to ‘knock it loose’ and I’ll have some mild spotting.

If I were you, I’d be more worried about the imbedding part if it wasn’t removed and talk to your obgyn asap.

I had a similar experience, a few years into my Mirena I had 2 week long periods, with one weeek breaks in between. Basically I would have my period 3 weeks out of the month! they found it was implanted and removed it, in the office after giving me an ultrasound to see wear it was…

They re-inserted another one, and so far so good. What I have read is that implantation into your uterine wall is common.  If it happens again to me (I have three children), I’m just going to take permanent steps to not have children. It was kinda painful and gave me alot of anxiety when I had to have it removed and reinstered.


Hope this helps

@cloverbug:  I always had problems with estrogen based birth control which led me to Mirena so I’m the same as you. I’d call my doctor multiple times to make sure it was normal.

Get. It. Out.

I had a Mirena for a year and a half with very few problems, then out of the blue I got horrible bleeding with huge clots and debilitating cramps that would not go away and it wasn’t even embedded in my uterus (so they thought).  They thought that maybe I had an intrauterine infection, so they prescribed me an antibiotic and put me on birth control pills just in case it was just a hormone imbalance problem.  That seemed to help, but it still always hurt to have sex with the damn thing and I couldn’t stop taking the pill or I would just bleed and bleed, so finally I said, screw it! If I’m going to be taking the pill, might as well get the stupid thing out.  Best decision of my life!  I just majorly regret ever getting it, now. 

We are TTC now (7 months after Mirena removal and 3 cycles off the pill) and we are on our 3rd cycle of no birth control and I am charting now to track my cycles.  We haven’t gotten pregnant yet (I am 23, Darling Husband is almost 24), although I am still too early to tell in this cycle (I am not feeling too hopeful though, I have the same PMS symptoms I have had for the past 2 months).  I am trying not to obsess about it, but I can’t help but think that the Mirena may have messed up my uterus/fallopian tubes, and it makes me want to just cry.  If I did have an infection at the time, inflammation produces scar tissue that can lead to blocked tubes.  I am probably jumping to conclusions majorly, and maybe nothing is wrong and we just haven’t gotten lucky yet, but it is always in the back of my mind. I don’t think the manufacturers are completely honest about the risks associated with Mirena, or they make them seem like they are so rare they will never happen to YOU! Yeah right. I am done with IUDs forever.
