After having my daughter last May I have been having trouble with my cycle, so my doctor recommended I give Mirena a try. She placed it in December and ever since I have had random periods of spotting, some lasting just a few days and some lasting a few weeks. I went to see her again because my husband was complaining of feeling the strings and I talked to her about the spotting. She said my hormone levels may be a little out of wack since I am still breastfeeding and have Mirena causing the lining of my uterus to be too thin. Her fix: hormone therapy, but I need to stop nursing before she will even consider it. And she said my hormone levels may even themselves out after my milk dries up so I may not have to do it.
Do I really want to stop nursing my daughter right now or let her keep nursing since she enjoys it so much? Or should I just have my Mirena removed and try something else? I'm really torn about this whole situation :(
