    Bit of a nightmare yesterday, wasn't going to mention it but i can't sleep....

    I don't have periods, haven't had one in about 2 years - APART FROM day 5 SS on my first ever CD week. Last night i had the feeling of "dampness" and was shocked to find huge clots (and i mean huge). I'd been spotting the day before, and had huge cramps in the night which were way worse than any normal periody cramps..

    Not amused, slightly worried and a tad upset xxx

    hiya, i've had mirena for 3 years now and very rarely have periods, sometimes spotting though. i think if you are worried you should go and have it checked by your nurse.
    it's nice not to have periods as i was put on it because of very heavy periods.
    i wouldn't be too worried though.

    ttfn

    I had a mirena for 10 years straight (one after another) and rarely had periods. I've had my most recent one removed and won't be going back to hormonal birth control though ... had enough of the effects it has on me.

    If a mirena is correctly in place and not shifted or anything then its reliability is on par with sterilisation ... but if you're in the slightest bit worried, go and see your GP. When we lose a lot of weight, things can change 'inside' too so it might be an idea just to get things checked and put your mind at ease.

    Im exactly the same as you, i started cd again and on day 3 my peroid came, same thing has happened each time ive started CD (4 times now!)

    i presumed it was maybe something to do with weightloss. ive had my mirena coil in for nearly 3 weeks and had spotting since then but now ive got the clots aswell tho i presumed it was just because of peroid.

    speak to your dr if youre at all worried, hope youre ok

    ps i was told as long as coil was in the right place etc it was 98% effective
