Has anyone gotten pregnant while using the Mirena IUD?

I was just wondering if all the symptoms were the same as getting pregnant without using birth control.

  • So far...no. I've had the Mirena since May and I've had plenty of unprotected sex without pull out...no pregnancy so far.

  • Nope. I'ts more effective than birth control pills, unless it comes out. I have never heard of anyone getting pregnant w/ Mirena. I love mine. I have a very light period every 3 -4 months. So far, it's been great for us.

  • Ugh, you guys make me sad! I still have a heavy period every single month. It's so unfair!

    I would be really scared if I got pregnant while on the Mirena...I would think it could easily cause a miscarriage when they removed it if you were already pregnant.

  • I had a Mirena for 5 yrs and no babies! I loved it, no periods, no cramps. What bliss! I took it out TTC and I gave birth 11 months after it was out. Good luck!!
