Period on mirena

I've had one fitted for over 18 months. Never had any problems. I spotted for the first few months then nothing since. A few days ago I started spotting and it's still light but got heavier?! Why is this happening now??

Intermittent periods are not uncommon, mine never stopped and I have intermittent ones sometimes heavy, sometimes spotting. Had Mirena for 2 years now.

@Lonecatwithkitten thanks for reply. It's so annoying. I haven't had anything for ages and then suddenly this and a lovely hormonal headache which has lasted for days now!!

I am wondering the same. Had mine for 12 months or so. Didn’t have periods for 10 months but now I’ve had two in the last 2 months!! 🤔
