Bleeding and Period Issues on Mirena

I've had Mirena for only a month and so far I'm upset with the 2-week period (ugh!) and bleeding the 2 times my bf and I have had sex. Between the blood and the slight odor that results, I'm wondering if I should stick it out a few more months or have it removed. Looking for a lifeline here, ladies, let me know your experience please. We're going on vacation in a bit more than a month and I'm panicking thinking I may have my period which would be a total disaster

You had said odor which indicated it was NOT something that was typical for your body.

I don't like Mirena. They are dangerous.

Thanks. I called the doc this morning and he said "unusual bleeding in the first 2-3 mos is normal" and I should just wait a little longer. The odor is not typical of infection (but thanks for worrying) but more like associated with the blood (almost like when you have a heavy period). I've never had an IUD before but I didn't expect this frustrating experience. I don't want to go on the pill either.

Just re-read it. The bleeding during sex does not sound normal either.

The odor is an indication that something is wrong. I have no idea about the bleeding with Mirena (I dislike IUDS they are dangerous) but the odor can mean infection. Go see your doctor asap. They may need to remove it.
