WOW! This site has come just a little too late for me! I have had the mirena in four nearly six months and have been bleeding for just about that whole time! I have gone down all the roads that others have with thyroid tests and pregnancy tests etc... all to no avail. The OB just seemed SO surprised that I wasn't happy with bleeding for six months straight ! I even told her that the reason I wasn't on BC was because I was very sensitive to the hormones and she said this was the best method for me then as it gave my body the least amount possible!! What a load of rubbish! My hair is SO thin... does it come back? I am going to take it out myself ... I have two little kids and it is such a pain in the butt to go to the OB with them. I should have bought shares in Tampax for all the tampons I have used in the last six months!
I guess I am just glad that I am not alone or going mad! :)
