Check with your GYN because you might have fibroids , and this cause weeks of bleeding in some womens.

Hi Anon,

Between 5 and 10 percent of Mirena users will suffer from Heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding. This is a side effect of the medication. You may want to talk to your doctor about this if you feel like you are becoming more fatigued than you were before. Since you lose so much blood in 2 weeks, you may want to consider taking an iron supplement.
