How long should I bleed after Mirena removal?

I have my Mirena removed July 7, 2010 so that me and my boyfriend can try for a child and I started bleeding the next day. At first it was very heavy with some clotting at times and now a week later its still hanging around, not as heavy but there and very dark. Is this my AF or is this just a side effect from having it removed? My AF should be coming on soon, but whie I was on Mirena it usually was just very light for 3-4 days every 2 months. I want to conceive so bad before he deploys that way he will be back in time for the birth. My nerves are crazy right now....Anyone have any ideas?

Heavy bleeding and clotting can occur for a few days after Mirena removal. Periods may be irregular for a few months, but you may even ovulate immediately after the removal depending when in your cycle it was removed.
