Is it normal to bleed nonstop for two weeks on Mirena?

I got the Mirena put in three months ago and the first two moths I had little to no period symptoms until this month. I have been bleeding for almost two weeks mostly light bleeding except two days where it was really heavy and thick. Almost like a mucus texture. I'm wondering if this is normal and if my body is just getting used to the hormones or if I should go to the doctors?

All the information I have read says it can have a 6-12 month "settling in" period. That could be different for each person but generally it means your body could be all over the place for up to 12 months.

Im not a fan of Mirena. I had it in for a year and the ENTIRE time I felt pregnant. Then I got a cyst on my forehead that wouldn't go away. My doc said it was from the Mirena. I had it taken out and then the cyst went away. Also, my friend had hers move, and got pregnant with her 4th baby. Dont trust it!
