Ive had the Mirena in for about 4 years. I may have been having side effects I didn't realize could be attributed to this. For the most part my periods have been every few months, and only a couple to four days of light spotting. However the last couple of months they have come monthly, had finished the last one a couple weeks ago. Friday night I had what was a decent amoutn of bleeding that seemed to have been brought on by intercourse. Saturday had what felt like the worst UTI ever and woke up Sunday with what felt like menstrual cramps, which I NEVER get. Ive noticed a lot of thick mucusy discharge as well. I have had lower back pain on and off for the last year or so that I attributed to age, but am starting to wonder. Does any of the above sound familiar to other Mirena users here?
