mirena and bleeding

i' ve had the mirena in for three years now, i had sex two days ago for the first time in a month and bled after, i' m still bleeding but very slightly, i' ve very worried as i haven' t had a period for basically three years so i don' t think it' s that. what could this possibly be from? has it come out of place?

A is right as long as you have had a pap smear in the past year.

Random spotting is not uncommon with the mirena - even if you haven' t bled for years. If you' re not in pain and if you can still feel the strings (assuming you could in the first place), don' t worry too much about it. Or maybe you have a small sex-related injury that could account for the bleeding.
