Q: Just a year ago I got a Mirena IUD. For the first few months I didn’t really get my period, there was occasional spotting. In the past month I have started to get a more regular spotting. It’s like a super light period. I dont know if I should be concerned. Please help!
A: From what you are describing it would appear that your IUD is performing as it is intended. The Mirena IUD releases hormones into your uterus that are designed to reduce the amount of bleeding during a woman’s menstrual period in addition to preventing pregnancy. The reduction may not be 100%. If you are concerned or have any questions regarding your experience we recommend you discuss this with your physician directly as SFSI does not make medical diagnosis or substitute for medical professionals in any way.
Hope this helps. You can read up on it more on the Mirena website.
