So now it's been 6 weeks and the spotting is really light now but still happening every day, enough to require a panty liner. Every now and then I get a super gross string of thick CM.
I got the IUD at 8 weeks postpartum, so out of the 3 1/2 months since I had my baby, between lochia and this stupid IUD, I've been bleeding or spotting constantly except for the 4 weeks after the lochia trailed off but before the IUD. As you can imagine, it is getting *really* old!
I have a follow-up appointment next week to make sure everything's good with the IUD. But I'm just wondering if this is a normal experience. Is the spotting *ever* going to stop?
I'm afraid I'm going to have to remove it if there's no end in sight, and if so that will really suck. I need reliable birth control! We are 99% sure we are done but we haven't committed to the big snip yet.
Has anyone else spotted for a long time after getting the Mirena? Did it eventually stop??
