Hello, I've had Mirena for a little over four and a half years now. Early August will mark five years. Since having Mirena I have stopped having periods for the most part. Every once in awhile I will have a little bit of dark brown spotting. Last night, however, I began bleeding pretty heavily. It has become much lighter today, but I'm still concerned that after almost five years I began bleeding heavily. Is this expected in the last year of Mirena? Does diet and/or exercise affect the sudden onset of a period while on Mirena? Overall I would appreciate and advice you can share.
