Thanks for your response. The pain has been going on for 3 days and I have been having the bleeding only today. It’s not heavy bleeding lighter then a normal period
Customer reply replied 26 days ago
I have a prescription for tramadol and I took 2 of those and that has not helped at all

Thank you for the input.

I am very sorry for your symptoms.

Mirena can cause missed period for long time.

It is an usual side effect.

Motrin can be better to reduce the pain.

As the bleeding is not too much, you can wait to get an appointment for a gynecologist.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Your satisfaction is my goal.

Thanks! That really helps. One last questions is it still able to prevent pregnancy?

You are welcome.

Usually Mirena is effective for 5 years.
Sometimes it can work for 7 years too.
We need to know the cause of sudden pain.
Examination will be needed.
Sometimes Mirena can be displaced.

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.
