I have had a Mirena IUD for almost 8 months. I had the usual cramping and bleeding for a few months after getting it. I haven't had any bleeding or cramping since then. For the past few days I have had a little bit of blood when I wipe and I have been cramping a lot today. Also, it feels weird when I try to sleep on my stomach. I was just wondering if anyone has any knowledge of IUD's and wether or not I should be concerned.

No, you should not be too concerned, but you should know that ovarian cysts are common with Mirena. That can be a cause of pain and bleeding, actually. It can also be your normal period.

Only about 20% of women actually lose their periods, so most women do have occasional bleeding and spotting.
