  • I'd take a pregnancy test and see what it has to say! =)

  • It is possible with the Mirena that you will not have a period. I have not had a period since July of 06. My son was born March of 07, IUD placed April of 07. If you think you may be pregnant then get tested, but it is rare.

  • I had Mirena from may of 07 to sept of 08...and I didnt have one period during the whole time! When I got it removed in sept, I had bleeding from the removal but still no periods! And now it is January and I am 6 weeks pregnant...go figure. But to answer the ? mirena is a strange little thing that works in strange ways. There was a time that I thought I was preggers as well on it but it was just my body reacting...Check to see if your strings are still there, and take a pregnancy test if you are still unsure...and if that doesn't satisfy, call your doc and see what he says!
