i have had mirena in for about 2 years now.... I would say after 6 months i had NO periods... dont get me wrong every now and than i would get spotting that maybe lasted half a day and it wouldnt even fill up a light tampon... Well today out of nowhere i woke up went to the bathroom wiped and there was a decent amount of blood (about what you would see as a normal start to your period also a blood clot about the size of a marble maybe a little bit bigger) i put a regular tampon in and it filled it up about 3 quarter (had mild cramping and back pain) and somehow it got to the tampon string so i took it out ... i had stopped bleeding than about 10 minutes ago i had about moderate cramping and back pain went to the bathroom and it was like full blown period. is there normal for people with mirena who havent had their period in a while? also i read something about expulsion of mirena but that it ussually occurs within the first couple months... sorry its just since i havent had period in sooo long its kinda worrying me
I had that once...it was my only period in the full 2.5 years I had the mirena. I just assumed my body had some pent up stuff it needed to expel. It only lasted a couple days and it was the only time it happened. I just had mine removed last Wednesday so I could TTC and there have been no problems. Maybe call your doctor if it doesn't stop or gets really bad but I think it's probably fine.
I would have your doctor check your strings to be sure it is in its proper place. You shouldn't use a tampon while using the Mirena because it can pull on the strings (or you could accidentally grab the strings). Your bleeding may be entirely normal but because you have a clot I would just double check to make sure everything is still in place
