I was just wondering because I've had mine for over a year now with no problems except for the last three months, my "special time of the month" which has always been regular has slowly began to move at three days earlier each month. With this last one it started 5 days too early and started out way lighter then normal, and tho it normally lasts 7 days i am now into my 8th day, it is, should say seems, almost gone but its still lingering. I have had horrible mood swings and a headache with some nausea, i called my ob she said take a pregnancy test and they both came up negative, but its still acting weird, does anyone have any ideas? I'm just a little worried about whats going on because this hasnt happened to me before and i dont know anyone who has a mirena to ask.

I have the mirena and am on my 3rd year with it so far. I have the same "special time of the months" with the lingering and scattered dates. I was told when I first got the mirena that it would help cramps and muscle aches but could enlongate the duration and flow of my period. I wouldnt be too worried although I feel your frustration with the lingering! Good luck!
