I have had the Mirena for 7 and a half years. I am experiencing acne problems (have so for the last couple of years, especially on my chin and neck). I have gained weight. I am now 43 years old and planning to have the Mirena removed. I believe it is not as painful as it was when inserted. Will my periods return to be the heavy ones I had before having the Mirena inserted? I experience a lot of excretions from the vagina/uteris. Is this due to the Mirena. I have to wear a panty liner every day. The excretions are sometimes smelly for a couple of days. Please let me know what you think?

Removing the Mirena is quick and easy. It is hard to say what your periods wil be like afterwards, though they are likely to be heavier. Irregular spotting is comon with the Mirena.
