Question: Mirena~Unusual length of period

 soukitty614 - Thu Apr 30, 2009 1:13 am

I have had mirena for 6 months now and things have gone so far really well. My periods have been regular, even after have mirena put in. They usually last 4 days at the most, but during this month its been 7 days. Its been more along the lines of spotting, but it's never lasted this long.

I'm wondering if there is any reason for concern.....

User avatar Hello,
Variation such as this is perfectly normal. I would not be worried at all. Chances are it is temporary.

Best wishes.
