I had Mirena put in at 8 weeks after Zander was born and everything seemed to be okay.
I was just wondering if anyone else had it put in and if so, did you experience weeks of spotting after your period? It's been like 3 weeks of spotting for me.

I have had mirena for 15 months now. Got on it after my daughter was born. At first I would bleed or spot for the first couple of months. probably 2-3 months. I hated it and almost decided to get it taken out. Glad that I didnt! Eventually the spotting stopped and I have not had a period in over a year. I have no discomfort, cramping, or any side effects that I notice. Its normal to spot and it can go on for a while. Just stick with it and stock up on panty liners!! :) It will go away, eventually.

I have had the mirena for about 2 years now....and the first year was ANNOYING! But everyone's body is different! It doesn't bother me now! and My cycles are beautifully light!

i am having baby number 2 but for around 2 yrs i had the mirena iud. i loved it. at first yeah i had the spotting and it drove me nuts. but once my body adjusted to it everything was fine. it only took a little while. before i had it removed my only problem was remember when i had my last period because they were so light. i mean i had it taken out at the end of september 09 and had my cycle in october and in november i was pregnant. and my doctor has asked me if i wanted my tubes tied after i give birth and i have said nope i want the mirena again.

Ive had mirena for almost 2 years now and i had a HEAVY period for almost 3 months with horrible cramping. I almost had it taken out but now I'm glad I didn't because I haven't had a period since and have had no problems since. Even with the first 3 months as it was I would do it over again!

The spotting is normal. I've had mine since June and just stopped spotting in between periods about two months ago and now I barely get a period. Just really light spotting!!

I have had mine in for almost 2 months and I am still spotting. My SIL spotted for about 3 months after she got it put it! It sucks but my doc said stick with it cause you could be one of the lucky ones who does have a period or does but only every couple of months!
