I have had my Mirena removed since 8/08, while I had it (4 years), I experienced all of the side effects that everyone else has on this site. Also while it was in, I never had a period. Well, since the removal, I have only had one period and that was in 1/09 - it was a regular period (pre mirena). Most of the other side effects have disappeared except the weight gain and the bloated stomach (I still look like I'm 8 months pregnant!) My question is - has anyone else had a problem with getting their period back to normal?
