  • i was on Mirena for 3 years and the 2nd month I was on it I no longer had periods and didn't have one againe until I had it taken out..I always felt pregnant but I know its just a side effect..i took 4 pregnancy tests once and all of them came out negative..When I spoke with my doctor as to the reason why it made me feel that way she said that in some women the hormones in Mirena can make you feel queesy, and feel pregnant..I do know its normal to not have your period while on Mirena..But you should always make yourself an appointment and ask your doctor to be sure..

  • I had the Mirena for a year and a half. After two months I no longer had my periods either, and I felt pregnant all the time. I gained 25-30 lbs while on it also. I ended up getting it taken out because I hated how it made me feel 99% of the time.

  • Ive had the Mirena for 15 months now and after the first month or two my period was gone and no where to be found up untill last week and I had a very light one for 3 days and now today I have had horrible cramps but no period. It is normal to not have a period though there is woman that still have normal monthly periods. I too am having this thing taken out next month cause I hate how it makes me feel. Ive gained about 20 lbs while being on it, I have daily headaches, Monthly migrains, I just dont feel like myself at all. You could take a test to just ease your mind and also follow up with your doc.

  • That's the Mirena. You're not pregnant it's just the side effects
