But have now been bleeding since 6/10/14 and have dull ache in left side lower abdomen a and lower left back .

Thank you for the additional information.

There are many possible causes of a heavier or longer period than usual.

The most common are a hormonal imbalance, and most of these are common fluctuations in hormone levels that occur in many women of a certain age, both when periods first start and approaching when periods will end. The fact that you were having heavy painful periods for years suggest that you were having this to some extent before the placement of the Mirena. However, the hormonal component of the Mirena will usually help prevent heavier periods from a hormone imbalance.

There are other possibilities to consider. The most worrisome cause of bleeding would be an infection. It would be more worrisome for infection if there are systemic symptoms of infection present, such as a fever, or if there was more significant pain or tenderness. It is also possible that a heavy period could be due to abnormal growth of the lining of the uterus, such as hyperplasia or a polyp, such as you had previously, although the Mirena will usually also help this. The bleeding could be related to a problem of the muscle layer of the uterus, such as a fibroid or growth of the lining of the uterus into the muscle layer, called adenomyosis.

Statistically, it is still more likely to be due to a hormonal imbalance, despite the presence of the Mirena, but ultimately, it would require a proper evaluation to determine the exact cause.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
