Hi!
If you were my patient, I would want you to call me.  I might try prescribing some hormone pills to help stop the bleeding.  It is entirely possible that that the bleeding is a consequence of the Mirena, and should subside eventually, but because you are anemic, you should probably be treated with medications to stop the bleeding sooner rather than later.
Good luck!
