It is the 9th of Jan 2012, and I started my period (medium flow) this morning. I had very painful cramps for about 3 hours before it started, and they subsided as soon as my period actually started. I didn't take anything for the pain, but really wanted to. I had lower back pain as well. I am having the mirena taken out on the 2nd of Feb, so am curious to see if i menstruate at the same time next month, or if the mirena removal affects it.
