I've been on Mirena IUD for 16 mo. Really haven't had a period since starting on it.
About 2 weeks ago, I had really bad lower back pain that wouldn't go away and I couldn't sleep. Normally a visit to the chiropractor fixes this, but a few visits did nothing this time. My breasts were sore and painful during that time.
Then, 5 days ago, I had cramping, again something that I haven't had at all since being on Mirena. I started brown spotting with some blood. The same the next day. Spotting and cramping stopped for four days, only to start again and be done with in a day.
I took a pregnancy test on Tuesday, 7/10 but it was negative. I had a gyno appt on Friday 7/13. She said everything looked fine -- IUD was in place. Didn't do blood tests of course.
The past three days, I have bled with intercourse, definitely more so yesterday. Lower back pain is back and I am extremely tired, as in can't get out of bed in the morning after 8 hours of sleep tired.
What is going on?

Reason: more information
it could be effects of the hormone in the mirena... Everything was pretty uneventful with my mirena til a year later and I started to get some effects, we think from mirena, they were very similar to pregnancy signs.
