UKbee:   I have a question for you if you don’t mind. I wanted to get a <br />IUD went to the doctor and he prescribed me Mirena so I picked up the IUD from the pharmacy but ended up not getting it put in because I read all the horror stories about it. Sounds like you had a good experience? I am also a person who is prone to bleeding from BC so I am extra scared ( was on the patch a couple of years ago and thought I was going to bleed to death Sorry TMI lol)

UKbee:  Thank you for the response! I have terrible periods as well so maybe this is a good option for me, hearing that someone has had a good experience definietly makes the decision less daunting.

UKbee:  It is possible. Not likely, but not impossible. Can you take Plan B if you absolutely cannot accept the risk of getting pregnant now?

UKbee:  To answer your question… It’s entirely possible, but pretty unlikely. Without knowing your cycles, it’s hard to even take a stab at how unlikely, lol. But there are plenty of us on here who will testify to having shedloads of unprotected sex and still not getting pregnant. Although, if you’re a fertile Myrtle, who knows… If you’re not ready to be pregnant, and want to eliminate the risk completely, get yourself down to the chemist.

I think it’s possible…who knows how likely it is.  I am not sure with Mirena, how long do the hormones stay in your system?  Is it similar to BCPs?  Cause I went off my BCPs for the first time in 16 years and got pregnant two weeks later.  Once you stop BCP you can ovulate 2 weeks later I guess, I am not entirely sure about Mirena but I would imagine it is similar.

UKbee:  Plan B is not quite the same as what most people think of as “morning afterms pill”. It prevents ovulation and implantation, but doesn’t terminate a pregnancy if it is already implanted. 

As to being pregnant now, possible but I would guess not that probable just because the body has to kick back into a cycle first and that generally would take more than just a couple weeks to do that for most women after years of hormonall BC

UKbee:  The Mirena delivers hormones in small doses locally. Because of this, fertility should return to normal immediately after it’s removed (they advise that you avoid sex or use condoms for a couple of days prior to removal for this reason). However, the likelihood of falling pregnant after one slip up is small. If you definitely don’t want to be pregnant yet, I would advise getting the morning after pill to be sure.
