Is it normal to have bloating after your period with Mirena? Just feels like my stomach is blowing up with a small sharp pain and breast tenderness.
Women who use a Mirena IUD may not ovulate regularly. Therefore, they may have a change in menstrual symptoms. Occasionally women will develop ovarian cysts while using Mirena. These will generally resolve on their own. If you have persistent bloating or abdominal pain, you should see your health care provider.
