This is Dr. David

it sounds like you are having bad breakthrough bleeding after having your mirena placed and not having a period for a year.

this can happen and can be 100% normal.

after a year of no period, the uterine lining can build up and can come out with a heavy period.

you should see a doctor and get your hemoglobin levels and ferritin and iron levels checked again.

you could be getting close to perimenopausal state as well

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
