I had Mirena installed 7 November 2012 and i still bleding.Small amount.Some days medium.It is normale?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

hello

Dr. Pfeiffer :

the Mirena IUD contains a very small amount of hormone.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

abnormal bleeding is very common for the first few months.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

I typically tell my patients to give it a solid 6 months as the bleeding usually gets better with time....

Dr. Pfeiffer :

and some women even stop having periods.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

So...as long as you can still feel the strings, that suggests it is in the proper place...

Dr. Pfeiffer :

and that the bleeding is normal..

Dr. Pfeiffer :

it should get better with time.

Dr. Pfeiffer :
