For the past two weeks, my breasts hv been swollen and behind the nipples has been a tightness (the sort of tightness you get when breastfeeding and are about to spurt milk). I ve felt a bit strange too but mostly I ve put that down to a virus. This past week I ve been having fertile mucous and today I bled for the first time in two years (mirena coil). It all just seems a bit odd..?

Top guess is mirena hormone wearing off? How long has it been in?

I don't think they all last 5 years - mine started giving me funny symptoms after 2-3yrs.

I was told by dr at family planning place they can start to go weird after 3yrs and really should be taken out at 4yrs. I kept mine in for the full 5yrs and my naturally regular cycle was all over the place as was my skin, hair, mood etc.

Give it another month and if it happens again look into getting it changed.
