Brown tar like blood during menstruation after having Mirena

Im 21 years old i weigh 179 pounds, Im a healthy woman, I have no health problems other than ovarian cysts that i was diagnosed with as a teen. I just had my son 8 weeks ago and I recently had the birth control Mirena inserted at 6 weeks after delivering my child.. I have been on my period now for 2 weeks and I recently noticed that I am having thick dark brown tar like blood during this period and I have no idea what could have caused this or what is going on with my body.. Is there something wrong in my body or could it be the Mirena device? etc. Help!

Had a Mirena IUD removed About six weeks ago. The last three weeks I am experiencing a ver heavy period including passing blood clots several times per day. Is this due to menopause Ora IUD removal? I was experiencing the same symptoms prior to getting the Mirena device 5 years ago. Also I am 54 years old. Thanks.

Hi, I am 35 years old. I had the Mirena for a little over a year and after I got it removed a year and a half ago I stopped having periods all together. Went to the doc who told me I was in early menopause. I haven t had a period in over a year and a half and it started back up like it normally was a few days ago. I had got in my head I would be unable to have any more children....but is there still hope or no?
