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?

That is strange. I would call the doctor again and possibly retest...

It is very odd. I'm very aware of what's going on with my body, and something just isn't "right."

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.
