What Are The Odds?

I haven’t had a regular monthly menstrual cycle since I started using the Mirena IUD six months after having Yannick seven years ago. It’s a lovely, effective form of birth control that I highly recommend. With the Mirena, I get extremely light periods, maybe three or four times a year. Half the time, I don’t give it a second thought until I notice a bit of spotting, but what are the odds, that on this gloriously warm spring day, Miss Ruby would decide to make a visit when I’m sporting a pair of white capris? DAMN!

I do believe that the odds of Miss Ruby coming to visit increase exponentially when you wear white pants. I hope you hadn't ventured outside yet.

I did, but thankfully I was wearing a tunic that hit about mid-thigh!

Ever since I had my second baby six months ago, my cycles are all out of whack. So I'll say "about the same odds as me getting my period unexpectedly in the middle of the day at work for the third month in a row." LOL!

It's not uncommon that you can have problems with Mirena, but your story, while unfortunate, is practically a success story in comparison to some that I've come across about Mirena. Other women have experienced serious symptoms like weight gain, depression, mood swings, pelvic inflammation, vaginitis, uterine perforation, etc. Some people needed to have their Mirena intrauterine device removed.
