I am a little confused now. I have had the IUD Mirena for nearly a year and the doctor did not tell me this bit of info, neither did the pamphlet I got....
he hormone in the IUD may sometimes stop the release of an egg from the ovary, but this is not the way it usually works as ovulation still occurs in most women. The Mirena system may prevent sperm from reaching or fertilizing an egg. However, some sperm may reach the egg anyway, resulting in fertilization. When fertilization does occur, Mirena is also thought to act as birth control by preventing the embryo from implanting in the uterus. It is not known which of these mechanisms is most important for preventing pregnancy and most likely all of them work together.
Is this abortion? Should I get it removed or am I thinking about this wrong? I got that article from http://www.contracept.org/iud-mirena.php. I am getting a little upset..someone give me advice. what d u think?
