I had my mirena taken out 15 days ago and had a period almost immediately for about a week with heavy clots etc...then I had nothing for 1 week (the first time in a year I didn't have to wear a pantiliner) and now I have a really heavy period again. What are everyone's experiences getting back to "normal"?
I was so excited last year to get this thing...and now it has caused me so much grief. I had nothing but spotting for a whole year, it changed the smell, taste (sorry tmi), the discharge was different, I'm on anti-depressants now, urgh, just ruined me.
I've experienced the crash this week....forgot about this until this morning when I was reading these posts. My poor husband. We couldn't figure out what was up with me. I've been sleeping on the couch due to my insomnia, I've been soooo tired, crabby....just wacko!
Anyways my last concern is my period....I just want it back to normal! Any ideas of when I can expect this?
P.S on a good side, my hubby got the big "V" on Tuesday....yeh no more birth control for me ever!
yea for you and your husband. someone told me today about sherpards purse herb if you google it the site says it stops the heavy flow. i had my mirena out in 2005 and didn't have a period for 2 years after unless i used a pill. now i have been bleeding for 6 weeks straight and i am all ready anemic, so i plan on getting some drops of sherpards purse first thing tmw from the GNC.
there is no normal post mirena. the drop in progesterone allows a woman to have a period. my periods before mirena came like clockwork. post mirena my first four periods were hellacious. i am 10 months post removal and my period comes whenever it pleases. but i know what you mean about the smell and discharge with mirena. mine went away. even my body scent changed for the better post removal. yay for vasectomies!!! my hubby also got one last year. i never have to use hormonal birth control again!!! i got back to "normal" about 7 months post removal.
