I am 23 and have been using Mirena. I haven't had any issues with it other than excessive bleeding (for about 5 weeks) in the beginning, and irregular periods. This month, I have been on my period for 18 days and counting. With severe cramps, severe mood swings, depression, anxiety, back pain, and fatigue. What could it be, and what should I do?

AWilliams387 - This is abnormal, and you should contact your gynecologist for information and to determine whether you need to be seen. It's not possible to diagnose your condition via this website, but we can tell you that the symptoms you're describing warrant medical attention. Will you let us know what you learn? We wish you well and hope you're feeling better soon. Pat
