is this normal? i had my mirena put in in nov of 2005. had one light period shortly thereafter and then nothing....till yesterday. i've been breastfeeding the whole time, is that why i've gone without a period for so long? do i have one now because i'm nursing (slightly) less? could i be pregnant?

Mirena users can still get their periods. Often though, they are lighter than you would normal have without the Mirena. Most likely your first "period" was caused by the hormones in the Mirena thinning the lining of your uterus. Your subsequent lack of AF is most likely due to BF. I've had my Mirena for 5 months. Finished BF last month and still haven't had AF. HTH

Hi Ellen, I got a mirena a few months postpartum and my period returned last month when my dd was 17 months old. Lighter than it would be without the mirena, but a period nonetheless. *sigh*
