I have had Mirena in since my daughter was born in 2009. I never had a period the entire time I was on it and figured it would take a while to get back to normal once I had it removed. Well, we are trying for baby number 2 and I had the IUD removed a week and a half ago. So I've been expecting that my period, which always came right around the first of the month before, would start about now. I spotted three days ago very lightly and then barely again yesterday, but otherwise have had nothing. Could it be that I am just getting back to normal or could that actually be implantation bleeding? I have period symptoms - bloating, breakouts - but I also have unusual ones I haven't had before (migraines, heartburn). I'm planning to test at the end of next week if I don't get a full period but I'm going insane...worrying, wondering...HELP!View Thread
