Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
You do get your periods after insertion of any IUD. They usually work by not allowing implantation to occur, but periods can happen as you ovulate normally. Discuss the risk and benefits of Mirena insertion before going ahead with actual procedure for better clarity and decision making.
Take care.

I have read a lot about the Mirena IUD and quite a few people say that your periods go away after a couple of months. Is it different for every woman?
