Mirena &  periods

Hi Doc,

I' ve had the mirena for 7 months now &  I' ve been getting my periods every month. However, this month I was supposed to get them this weekeend, I spotted on saturday &  also on Monday, but still no periods. What could be wrong?

first check to see if the Mirena is in place (u can do this yourself), and if it' s in place, then it probably just means that you' re reaching the phase where the periods become lighter. The Mirena is said to make your periods lighter. So that' s probably all it is.

But if it' s not in place, and you can' t seem to feel it, maybe make an appointment with your gynae. It MAY have moved, and just to be sure, go visit your gynae to check if all is ok.

HI There
i have mine for 14 months. I have for thirteen months had my period every month. It was lighter but my duration still the same. I haven' t had it yet this month, so it might be that from now on I might not get a period at all-ever. On the pamphlet it is said that even if the period does not cone, it does not mean that you are pregnant. Did you have any difficulty with the device?
