(bullet point version)
I had my 3rd child in March.
Period had not started.
I put Kyleena (similar to Mirena) birth control at end of July.
For a week, there was nothing.
A week later, I spotted spotting/bleeding.
I am still spotting since (never stopped).
So basically I've been wearing a pad since July.
Did go to followup appt and doctor said give it time.
How much time before this is not normal?
Schedule another appt?

Unfortunately sounds normal. If it’s still going at 6mo I would consider removing if you hate it

Took me 6 months to stop spotting with my Mirena, I was told that was normal. Haven't had a period in more than 2 years since then, so totally worth it!

I think it depends on how much. I would have appointment to be safe. I had that happen when I bleed for six months straight and it was a lot. I always had to wear a pad and changed it a few times daily. It made me anemic. I personally dont like iuds. They scare me.

Holy smokes! No experience with IUD, but good luck. That sounds really frustrating.

I spotted for many months with Mirena. I think it’s normal, but call your Dr if you are unsure.

I had continuous light spotting with Mirena for about 8-10 months. Now i never get my period. The heaviest period i had was spotting for 3 days.
