There’s a very good chance that I’m symptom spotting and just crazy but can someone help me out??
I had my Mirena removed over a month ago (haven’t had a period but didn’t get them while on Mirena) and didn’t use OPKs so I have no idea when or if I O’d this month, but I’ve had a lot of weird potential symptoms (heartburn, twinges that weren’t exactly cramps, backache, having to pee all the time) for the last week or so that I never normally feel… Now today I feel like I have the flu (bodyache and sore throat but no fever) but I got the flu shot! No one I work with or have hung out with recently are or have recently been sick, and I’ve read feeling sick can actually be a sign of early pregnancy…
Sooo, has anyone felt sick like I do and then gotten a BFP??
And, does anyone have any experience with getting off of Mirena and how long it takes to get a period again when you didn’t have them on Mirena?

I never had Mirena, but the symptoms you wrote about, I definitely had this time around (2nd pregnancy). I would wait maybe 3-4 more days and then take a test!

OMG that has been me all week!
Nausea, fatigue, weird cramps in my lower abdomen area, body aches all week…but it’s confusing because I think I might’ve caught a cold last weekend and do I have a very mild sore throat now. I’ve been off the pill since Sept and got my period about 4 wks after.
Hmm…I guess we’ll both find out soon 🙂

I definitely had flu symptoms around week 4-5 but I got my BFP before they showed up. I never had mirena, I had Paraguard.

I wasnt TTC but at 4 weeks I had flu like symptoms and was taking lots of theraflu and what not to get rid of the cold. Had no clue I was actually pregnant.

Well the plot thickens because I ended up with a bad fever yesterday afternoon (up to 102.5) but then it disappeared by this morning and I just have a little bit of a sore throat… I can’t believe it’s the flu for it to have gone away so quickly, but I dunno what else it could be….
@Diamondgurl: Have you tested yet?? I dunno if I should or just wait because I have no idea of the timing…

@lazybee123: No I haven’t tested because my last period was 2 wks ago and it’s probably too soon to be able to find out. I was debating whether to get tested all week but ultimately decided just to see if my next period comes and go from there. I am not desperate to have a baby, but at the same time, I also don’t want to set myself up for any disapointment if the test happens to be negative…or even postive!
I didn’t get my period on the pill and aunt flo came 4 wks after I got off. Since you haven’t gotten your period yet, it might give you peace of mind to take a test and find out.

@Diamondgurl: this is me for the past few days. Soooo fatigued and crampy. Playing the waiting game now.

@lazybee123: It could be just your body used to being off of BC. I came off recently and my first cycle I had every single symptom in the book! It’s so frustrating. Good luck and hope you get your BFP!

The flu shot can cause you to have a few days of flu-type symptoms. When did you get it?
