mirena and pregnancy

Im on mirena and when i started my period was very normal the same as always nothing changed ecept a few cramps and now this or well last month i was supposed to get my period around the 28 and i still avent got it but i keep feeling cramps from time to time. Now i dont feel pregnant and i did get a tiny little drop on the 28th but that was it and thats what happened when i was pregnant b4 and then i didnt think i was pregnant either so i dont know i have been peeing more latley which is VERY weird for me cuz i onyl pee lik 3 times a day and now its been more so but i dont know if its because of the mirena or what. Has anyone actually got preganant on it iv heard of people who have but i dont know them enough to ask how they new should i take a test? i was thinking of waiting till next month but i feel stupid cuz im on mirena.

  • Well, I don't know of anyone who got pregnant on it, but I suppose you could. My SIL has the Mirena (I did too but had complications) and after a couple of months with it in her periods completely stopped. She said she gets just a little pinkish discharge but that's it. Maybe that's what's going on with you...I know that not getting a period anymore can one of the side effects. If' you're concerned with pregnancy, definitely take a test. Are you checking the strings each month after your period to make sure it's still in place? Be doing that too. The Mirena can come dislodged. Good luck...

  • I would just take a test. who cares what your on? birth control is never one hundred percent.. also that birth control usually makes you stop your periods after the first one or so....

  • i would deffinatley take a test. i am one of those who got pregnant on the mirena and ive heard about at least 5 other girls have gotten pregnant in my area who have gotten pregnant from the mirena. im currently pregnant because the mirena didnt work. i dont advise anyone to get the mirena or if you do dont depend on the mirena completely.
