I just got an IUD put in last week. So I thought I did all the research on the IUD and I chose that as what I wanted because it seems easiest. So after I got it put in I have had some discomfort and it's been 4 days. Is this normal? I feel the string and it's really uncomfortable sometimes. I haven't tried to have sex because I'm afriad it will hurt. So I just happen to mention to someone that I have one and they asked if I knew that was a form of abortion. I am VERY pro-life so I was upset that they were saying that. Is it really? She was also telling me she has heard alot of people get preggo while having an IUD and it can be dangerous. What do you guys think?? I'm freaking out right now about having it and I am feeling I made the wrong choice and want to call to get it removed already. I talked to my husband about it and he has left it up to me. So does the discomfort go away and do you think it's a form of abortion?Answer Question

The IUD stops the eggs from attaching whether it is fertilized or not. It says right there on the Mirena website. You could get pregnant and if you have the Mirena removed because of the pregnancy you could miscarry, that too is on the website. All birth control makes the womb a bad environment for an egg, fertilized or not.
Mirena Website: How does Mirena work? It is not known exactly how Mirena works. Mirena may work in several ways. It may thicken your cervical mucus, thin the lining of your uterus, inhibit sperm movement and reduce sperm survival. Mirena may stop release of your egg from your ovary, but this is not the way it works in most cases. Most likely, these actions work together to prevent pregnancy.
Also from the website:
There are also risks if you get pregnant while using Mirena and
the pregnancy is in the uterus. Severe infection, miscarriage,
premature delivery, and even death can occur with pregnancies
that continue with an intrauterine device (IUD). Because of this,
your healthcare provider may try to remove Mirena, even though
removing it may cause a miscarriage.
