Okay, so I just finished my 5th "period" with Mirena. I've had no problems with it at all, and I'm very happy with the results. Since I just got over my period, I know that I'm not pregnant, as my strings are still in place as well. But I just want to make sure: I started spotting(brown) on Saturday morning, with hardly any traces of actual red blood. It was just a bit on Saturday, and a bit more red blood on Monday, and the rest was brown, but and just like a normal, light Mirena period. It's almost done today. I just wanted to make sure that it's normal, as this is the least amount of red blood that I've had in any period so far, since it was dominated by the brown stuff. And is this a sign that my periods may stop?
Thanks!

Yep, that's pretty normal. Mirena is actually known to cause bleeds to stop completely, but just keep your doctor posted with changes and you'll be fine.
