Patient: I had mirena coil removed 4 weeks ago (post menopausal) and have had light bleeding and period cramps for 2 days. Is this normal?
Doctor: Vaginal spotting happens more commonly in copper IUDs as compared to progesterone containing IUDS (e.g. Mirena). It is p ossible to experience menstrual irregularities after of IUD removal. However, I would still suggest for you to see your doctor to make sure there is no concurrent infection (infections can also present with spotting). I do hope this helps and I wish you well always.
