Red face missed period, spotting, and Mirena

I got my Mirena on January 7th, 2009. I bled for about a month, and since then it has virtually gone away. I have had a few periods, but they have been super lite. The last time I had a "real" period was at the end of February/beginning of March. About 2 weeks ago I had some spotting for like 1/2 a day, but otherwise I seem to have missed my period.
Should I be concerned? I know that Mirena can cause periods to disappear, but I am one to be very prone to thinking I am pregnant!
I am engaged and my fiance and I do not use condoms (since they cause severe irritation for me) so he pulls out. He came in me once, right around the time I had that spotting.
It says that I should talk with my doctor if I miss a period, but I haven't really had anything more than heavy spotting since I got Mirena (minus the first month-ish)
Should I be concerned?
Nothing else has changed for me that would make me think I am pregnant, but I have never actually missed a period before.

Re: missed period, spotting, and Mirena

I have heard MANY Mirena nightmares such as yours. A lot of people taking it have bleeding and infection issues..... pregnancy being the last thing that usually is happening! Skipping your period on any BC is not half as serious as if you weren't on anything..... no worries, but take a test if you think you're losing sleep over it at night!

Re: missed period, spotting, and Mirena

I got my IUD in March 2008- I was 8 weeks post partum and I was nursing. I got NO period at all for 9 months as I continued nursing (it was wonderful!) after stopping nursing I do get peroids/spotting. Very annoying. I'm coming off a 2 week period.... that will helpfully be gone for a month, but who knows!

Re: missed period, spotting, and Mirena

Thanks for the input.
I actually really love my Mirena, but I'm not used to not getting a period! And since I'm only 22, engaged, and going to Med School in the fall, the LAST thing I need is a baby!
So I freak out.

[so i took a test and it was negative ]

Thanks again!

Re: missed period, spotting, and Mirena

Will my hormones still cycle even if I don't get my period?
I'm have all the "symptoms" of pre-period - crabby, mood swings, super sensitive nipples - but I missed my last period and don't know if I will get it this time either.
This just started a few days ago, and it's about the right time.
Just checking
