I've had Mirena for about a month now and have been bleeding pretty heavy ever since.(definately not just spotting) After intercourse I bleed even heavier for at least 5 days after and it makes me not want to have sex anymore. Usually the bleeding would increase shortly after, but last time it started gushing during and my husband got scared and stopped. It seems to be getting worse and worse. ... Show Full Comment

I had Mirena inserted 6 weeks ago and it came out today, I like many other women started having side effects which included: chest pain, numbeness in my arms and legs, tired all the time, can't sleep at night, nausea. I really hope I start to feel better soon now that is gone.

Comment:
I had it inserted June 30. No problem. No bleeding until July 25, and I thought it was a regular period. But I'm still bleeding 3 weeks later. HOWEVER I am not upset because reading their patient literature prepared me for bleeding for 3 - 6 months. I'm giving it time. That is the one and only side effect so far. Skin is fine, I am LOSING weight because I am dieting and it's wor ... Show Full Comment
