  • I've never heard of that before. There's no reason why it would affect pregnancy hormones.

  • I was on the Mirena and whoever told you that is wrong. I got preg on it and it showed up positive on a test. I went into the dr and they took a blood test and indeed I was preg. I ended up miscarrying a week later because it was still in.

  • I've never heard that. The test measures HCG in the blood, and Mirena won't affect the levels. It has different hormones in it.
