aseamark - I started to get spotting each month 4 months ago and this month I had a full blown period.
I saw my GP 2 months ago and she checked to see if the mirena had fallen out but it was ok.
Her explanation was that some women can experience this after 3 years( if you are using the mirena for menopause which I am then it has to be changed after 4 yrs - 5yrs if using for contraception.
I've been getting headaches,cramping, cravings,feeling like I'm going to bleed any minute.
My lower stomach is very bloated and feels very uncomfortable.
I just don't feel right at all.
Saw GP last wk and she said it would be best if I had it replaced as the symptoms I have are showing that the mirena is running out.
Hope this helps aseamark
