Have you taken a pregnancy test? It’s important to know ASAP if you’re pregnant with an IUD in place, because it can be very dangerous to you and your [potential] baby. I would take a test as soon as I could and get to the MD asap for a blood test!

 

I’m not sure if the hormones in Mirena would mask a pregnancy, but it’s worth peeing on a stick and then getting the blood test just to be sure.

You should get checked asap. If you are pregnant the IUD can cause all kinds of problems up to and including miscarriage. It can also make the IUD embedded in your uterus and cause problems in the future. Call a doctor!

@cyndistar3:Take the pregnancy test. Also, I thought the Mirena only lasted 3 years. (?) And call a doctor–go to a free clinic until you get insurance. It may be a long drive, but it’s worth it.

One of my best girlfriends got pregnant on the Mirena. It was awful. It caused her to have a tubal pregnancy and she lost the tube.Cry She struggled for two years to get pregnant after that before finally conceiving. She too had negative hometests. Please go get checked out. I will be praying that this is nothing but a GI bug or something.

@cyndistar3: I would see a dr if you think you’re pregnant with IUD. Do you have a low cost clinic locally? Also, see how long your medicaid will take to kick in, because you may need to go in before the medicaid would take effect. If I remember, isn’t your Darling Husband in the military? If so, you should have full medical coverage. I think at least… I remember them explaining all the medical stuff to me when my Darling Husband thought about joining.

Basically all of your symptoms are side effects of the IUD (about 3/4 the way down the page) & it also talks about the possibilty of if you get pregnant while on it (about 1/2 way down the page) & why you need to go to the dr if you’re pregnant:

Can you still feel the strings?  If you can feel the strings, and both pregnancy tests that you took are negative, I think your chances of being pregnant are very very small. 

When I had my mirena placed, the OB-GYN said it’s comparable to having your tubes tied to prevent pregnancy.  I know there is still a possiblity of course – but it is very minute!!  Especially if it’s placed properly and pregnancy tests are coming up negative.

You could always wait a few days and test again just to be sure.  And if you are still concerned, then a blood test at your doctors office will give you the answer you’re looking for.

@cyndistar3: This is just a thought, but I wonder if perhaps you are more attuned to how you’ve been feeling over the past few weeks because you know you didn’t use the withdrawal method a while ago?  Not to say “it’s all in your head” because obviously you are feeling what you’re feeling haha, but the mind can be very suggestive when it wants to be!

I know when I was trying to conceive – the first few months I had EVERY PREGNANCY SYMPTOM IN THE BOOK!!  But I think it was just because I was so attuned to my body.  Any time I randomly thought – my back is a bit sore today, or I’m a bit bloated today…I would immeadiately wonder if I was pregnant!  Whereas when I wasn’t trying to get pregnant – I wouldn’t even think twice about having a sore back or being moody or bloated….

Anyways, it’s good to get it checked out regardless – to provide you peace of mind, and to be sure your health isn’t in any danger too!

I actually had a lot of those symptoms while I was on mirena. My body actually rejected it after six months, and after I got it out I felt SO much better… either way, I’d get checked. Good luck!

I have mirena and did a ton of research and read hundreds of reviews and a lot of them said that they would be side effect free for weeks and even years and then would start having side effects… So I’m sure that’s just what it is…

But it’s not impossible to get pregnant on mirena so definitely check it out, but I think if your tests are coming out negative then you are probably ok.
