i havent gotten my period since i have been on the mirina ring and ever since me and my boyfriend had "rough sex" i cant stop bleeding and i felt for the ring and it feels out of place is this normal

I think you are getting two

I think you are getting two different kinds of birth control confused: the Mirena IUS and the vaginal ring. The vaginal ring has the same chemicals as oral contraceptive pills, except it goes right in the vagina and usually women continue having their periods when using the vaginal ring as directed.

The Mirena IUS on the other hand, is an intrauterine device that says in your body after being inserted by a doctor. Mirena contains a hormone which causes 20% of women to stop having their periods. Learn more about Mirena at this site: http://www.contracept.org/iud-mirena.php

Not knowing if you have a vaginal ring or IUD I cannot comment on the rough sex, but if you cannot stop bleeding please contact your doctor immediately. You should not post on an Internet forum if you are having an emergency medical condition. That is a question for your doctor in person.

Best of luck,
