Until yesterday, I had yet to start my period since I got my Mirena removed on 3/11. Each month I felt like I was going to start but then nothing happened. Well, the flood gates have been opened! The bleeding is VERY heavy but I'm so happy that my body has started to work normally. I didn't take the hormone pills to force my period to start. It happened without medical intervention. I haven't had a period since October of 2001. I got pregnant in Novemeber and then got the Mirena right after my son was born in August of 2002. I had been period free ever since and I was beginning to wonder if my body remembered what to do!
