I had my Mirena taken out last Thursday.
A couple times each day from Friday- Today I have had bright red spotting. Once today there it seem like two small what looked to be clots in the toilet after I went to the bathroom. Plus brown (old blood looking) discharge pretty much through out the days.
So I dont know if I should think of this as AF returning and mark it down as so on my chart. Or is it just spotting from having the IUD out.


Thank you for the amazing siggy *Kiliki*

I had my mirena out in March and for me, full blown AF started the following day and I've had regular cycles since. I know they do say it sometimes takes some time to regulate. I think of you think it's enough to be considered AF then go ahead and Mark it down that way.

It's not technically af. Mirena produces low-level progesterone. When you have it taken out, your body responds to the progesterone drop (or "Mirena crash" as some women call it - google it to learn more) with spotting. It's not a true period because you didn't ovulate and your hormones may or may not get on track immediately afterward.
