Thank you for this question. There are many potential explanations for this problem, but it is important to discuss this sort of thing with your doctor
who removed the intrauterine device. As you know, the Mirena is a hormone releasing device that actually is placed within the uterus and prevents pregnancy. Due to its placement in the uterus, there are times that it can become wedged into the wall of the uterus, which can cause some increased bleeding
when it is removed. Most often this is small and insignificant, but if it continues or is severe you need to speak with your doctor to make sure that you are safe and well. In rare occasions, these bleeds can be life threatening and quite significant, in which case you should call 911 or go immediately to the emergency department. IUDs are among the most effective birth control options available to those who are seeking hormonal contraception
, but, like any medication, there can be some side effects. They are also not for everyone. It is important that you speak with your doctor about whether they may be right for you, and about any bleeding or other complications once they are placed or removed. Please speak with your doctor.
