Thanks for the query.

There may not be any harm because of the vibrating belt while using mirena coil.
So you can use it.
Intermittent spotting may be seen sometimes.
Usually that will subside soon.
If the spotting continues or pain abdomen etc occurs better to consult doctor once.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

I have a girlfriend who has had the mirena in now for 3 years. She mentioned this past week that she thinks it has moved. She said everytime she pees it feels as if her mirena is going to fall out. Now she is so sick she cant move. Could the mirena be causing her to feel this way?

Hi i am 31 and have had the mirena coil for five years. This afternoon my stomach became extremely bloated and aching. My husband and i had sex last night and after i bled quite alot which never usually happens. Is this possibly linked to my coil or a separate issue altogether?

About 11 months ago, I got the mirena iud. I had some very infrequent spotting for a month or two and then stopped getting my period. Recently, I noticed that my nipples (but not the actual breast) were very sensitive, almost sore. My boyfriend and I have sex without condoms almost every day, so I m wondering if I might be pregnant. I have also noticed an increase in: appetite, fatigue, libido, mild cramping, and lower back pain. I also can t feel my iud strings anymore though my boyfriend says he can. I took an early response home pregnancy test two nights ago, and it came back negative. I still just have a feeling I might be. What is your opinion? I know iuds are supposed to be really effective, but nothing s perfect, and I just want to be careful.

I ve had the Mirena for almost 4 years and hardly ever bleed. If I do it s light brown discharge and this happens only twice a year. The last month ive had light brown discharge with a foul odor. I lasted 4 days. 3 weeks later my discharge stated again but this time it changed from brown to green to red in a day. Now im bleeding lightly with the same foul scent. Im going to the doctor tomorrow but do you think this can be because of the Mirena? e the foul duscharge.
