Bleeding won't stop on Mirena JesseLee 1 child; Akron, Ohio 13 posts

I got the Mirena IUD put in three weeks ago and I haven't stopped bleeding since. I called the doctor's office and the nurse told me this is normal and that I can bleed for THREE to SIX MONTHS! I did NOT know this ahead of time so I told them I want them to take it out. Have any of you experienced this? For those of you who have had the Mirena, how long did you bleed for?

My husband is getting home from the Army finally in two weeks and we have a lot of catching up to do. I don't want to still be bleeding! :(

Mine was about the same way and stopped after 3-4 weeks. I spotted often after that initial bullshit. Now I haven't had any bleeding in a few months. I got it in April. Love it!

I had mine in for about a year and bled almost every time I had sex..... I also got pregnant while on it, worst birth control ever. I'd get it removed if it continues to bleed

I hated it! I bled for about two weeks initially then my hair wouldn't stop falling out and I was extremely emotional. It too fell out and I had a molar pregnancy a few weeks afterward.

I lost so much blood and had horrible cramps! I went into the ER and they got fluids in,me I stayed the night at the hospital and the mother fuckers sent me home. Next day I started bleeding bad again and I saw my doctor she did an ultrasound to find it stuck in my cervix and my body was trying to reject it.
