I have been having a problem with bleeding every time I have sex and it has become an issue. I have had the Mirena in for almost 5 yrs. I have seen my doctor about it and she said I shouldn't worry about it.How can I be with someone when I bleed every time?? I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem??? HELP

I am going i ... Show Full Comment
