i have had a mirena in for almosta year and ive been bleeding off and on for the past 2 weeks and it finally stopped and now im bleeding again but it is bright red this time and more cramping then usual as well...what does this mean
Avatar dr f tn
Hi there,
Merina can cause menstrual irregularities which are common in first few months of its use. It causes thinning of the uterine lining and it can cause frequent spotting or bleeding. Frequent bleeding can lead to anemia and weakness. It is best to consult your gynecologist. She may advise medications to control this bleeding or a suitable alternative birth control. Do write to me again on how you are doing.
Best luck and regards!
