i was due my period on or around friday, not sure as i had the coil removed just after my LMP! Lmp Feb 10, Mirena removal Feb 15! Iv had a few symptoms lately, putting them down to hormonal changes. Fatigue, constipation, extreme bloating, minor headaches, lower adb cramps, lower backache, tender breasts-on one I have grown some cysts(normal for me with hormone shift!) That was mostly last week and yesterday, Monday< i had some dark brown bleeding with light pink streaking, not alot. Changed TP 3 times in 4 hours, each with not much on them and after 3rd change bleeding stopped. Had mild cramps with it, With the coil I had severe PMS pain 14 days before I was due and the day I started. Now this morning I woke up with a lessing cramp in my abd, on the mid bottom and right side, and when I wiped I had very light pink blood. Very bloated and gassy also this moning. Took HPT yetserday as I seen the brown could be implantation, BFN. Is this all normal for having the coil removed?

Hi Anonymous,

Yes this is expected once you have had Mirena removed. Your body has to make an adjustment and you may experience some bleeding or spotting before actually getting your period. Sometimes it may even take a little longer after removing the IUD, to get your period. 

Give it some time-- all the best,
