Irregular Bleeding after having my Mirena out?

After getting my Mirena IUD out on November 17 I experienced some light spotting which I understood was normal. I started having a heavy period on November 27 and lasted until December 3 and my doctor assured me it was normal even though I had never had that heavy of a period before. I experience another more "regular" period starting on the 14th and it ended on the 17th. Now bleeding has started again today and it's seeming like it is going to be a "heavy" period again. I am soaking a super tampon in 2 hours.
I am just wondering if this is normal or if I should be worried? Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks for the reply Kelly. No I only had it in for just over 2 years. I got it in August 2008. I didn't get my regular period while it was in either though. During the 2 some odd year I only got light periods for maybe 4 months and it was on and off.
Wouldn't it just shed all at once though, not on and off like it is?

Did you have it in the full 5 years? The mirena does not stop you from ovulating, so your body could easily be getting rid of the access stuff or trying to kick itself back into full gear. :)

Also just to add on, I have already taken a pregnancy test (which came back negative) and I have no cramping so I don't think it's a miscarriage.
