I had the Mirena inserted in May this year, and although I feel great and have no other problems I'm a bit worried about very long & heavy periods. Before the IUD my period was about 7 days, now I bleed for 2 weeks. Should I be concerned, or does my body need more time to get used to the device. I must just say, that my periods aren't painful, and there is no clotting. Can anybody advise me on this, or should I give my Gynae a call?

You can have irregular bleeding with the Mirena, but it should not be prolonged. You should fall your gynaecologist.
