How much post insertion bleeding is normal?

I had a Mirena inserted on December 12th on the first day of my period. I had my normal period bleeding and then it seemed to be tapering off to just light spotting by two weeks post insertion, but at two weeks I started bleeding heavily again, like another period. That has been pretty steady for the past week. I know everyone is different, but is this normal? How long should I expect for this to continue, and at what point (if any) should I contact my doctor? Am I going to be bleeding for the rest of my life?? LOL
