Mild bleeding after getting mirena removed. Severe cramps. Is it normal?

I had my Mirena removed on 2/7/13 after having it in place for 4 years...I started a light bleeding on 2/10... and today, 2/15 I passed a very large bloodclot, it was atleast a tablespoon or 2 measurement.... I m hoping this is just my body trying to get back to normal after 4 years of having the mirena in place but concerned with it being that large and cramps are worse then they ever was the 15 years prior to having the mirena put in place... Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

Welcome to HCM.

After mirena removal, mild cramps and bleeding are normal. Many women also complain of passing blood clots. Don't worry it is normal. The blood clots are the shedding of the endometrium ( uterine lining ), within a few days it will get normal.

If you are bleeding and continue to pass blood clots, contact your treating doctor, you need to be clinically examined.

Eat balanced food rich in iron, calcium, minerals and antioxidants, exercise regularly, hydrate yourself adequately, stay fit. Take care.
