IUD Removal 

March 15th 2012

March 16th - 17th 

Brownish Spotting.... (On & Off)

March 18th - 19th 


March 20th 

Brownish spotting, AGAIN!!-

March 21st 

Seems like PERIOD!! 

March 22nd 

A tad bit of brown spotting...

March 23rd 

6:47AM Bleeeding...

Three days after removal I had brownish spotting... Two days later nothing... The following week I had a one day seems like period... Then the following day NOTHING... & just the other day spotting AGAIN... I'm really confused if this is the outcome of taking the IUD out or if I can maybe be pregnant?.. But I highly doubt it... May I add that I've been having pelvic cramps, tender nipples & been eating more then the usual?... WEIRD!!!!!!

it's the crash from mirena, it's normal. good luck and good job for having it removed!

When I had it removed, I actually skipped a period the first month. Some IUDs release hormones and your body goes through some funny changes as you adjust to not receiving those hormones. The 2nd month after removal I got my period and could track ovulation and blamo! I was pregnant (not sure if that's that reason for your removal).
