i had a mirena inserted on may 28th. i know my midwife said the first 4 months are an anything-goes type situation. but.... i started my period that day of the insertion (literally in the bathroom just before, lol), so i expected to be bleeding. well, i still am. my periods are usually light. i'm not having cramps. the bleeding seems to lighten at night or in the evening and then start up again bright red in the later morning. i'm so confused. has anyone had this happen. i know that she said the mirena will tell you when it's out of place because you'll have bleeding, but i think it's too early in the game for me to say that that's my issue. plus, i really want to have sex, but it's gross that i'm bleeding. :(

so... basically just looking for some experiences from others. thanks!
