I know it's normal to have irregular bleeding after insertion of mirena. I had it inserted 4 months ago and due to the ongoing bleeding they started me on the contraception pill after 8 weeks. The bleeding subsided within 3/4 days of the first packet and I had no spotting etc until I started the non active pills. Started bleeding as expected but even though I have started the second months pill I have had ongoing spotting this month. I am now 3 weeks into the 2nd month cycle and am still spotting. Is this normal? I don't see the point in taking the pill as well as the mirena if it isn't going to actually stop the bleeding.
