Mirena IUD Allison Ricker 1 child; New Hampshire 49 posts11th Feb '13
I had a Mirena IUD instated 8 weeks postpartum and I am currently 12 weeks postpartum. I am breast feeding my LO. Ever since the IUD was inserted I have been continuously bleeding /spotting. I also have been occasionally feeling nauseous. I also have been having extream mood swings. My SO and I had sex the day after I had it put in w/o a condom and have been having sex from then to now (about every other night). Is how I am feeling a normal side effect of the Mirena IUD? Thank you in advance!

I was a raging hormonal b***h on mirena. I hated that thing with every fiber of my being. Yes the bleeding is normal so are the mood swings. I would test just to be 100% sure since you did have unprotected sex so soon.
