I had Mirena put in about 8-10 weeks after my daughter was born (she was born mid April and I had it put in the end of June). I was breastfeeding and didn't really get a period before it got put in. My midwife told me it was effective immediately (I was on the mini pill since having my daughter)... She also informed me that there is a lot of irregular spotting for the first 3-4 months or so... I haven't gotten anything I would consider a "period" just some light spotting at irregular intervals. Sometimes I worry about being preg, though, especially after watching some of those "I didn't know I was pregnant" episodes! I would say for peace of mind, if you're worried, definitely take a test!

Thank you Vicki... for my siggie!
