Has anyone ended up pregnant on Mirena or an IUD? How did you know?

I've been on my Mirena for a little over a year and have absolutely no problems with it. My periods have stopped months ago (but still PMSing). The first time I was pregnant, literally the only way I knew I was, was my period stopped and my breast were tender. I didn't get any other symptoms till later. Lately I've been feeling so exhausted for NO reason, my breast are achy (haven't BF since august 08), I feel sick after I eat, and a few other things. I just feel how I did when I was pregnant the first time. I know it's not impossible to get pregnant on IUD's. I should be having my PMS symptoms sometime soon but I haven't had any cramps minus some from being constipated a bit. SO hasn't given me any money this week so I can't go get a test, and I don't want to tell him till I know to save him some stress just in case.

If you got pregnant on an IUD how did you know? Did you just have that feeling or what?

  • I know that the periods are suppose to stop, just FYI in case. It was the thing I was looking forward to the most with the Mirena. hehe
