  • Every time you have sex, you risk getting pregnant (even with birth control). So, yes there is a possibility that you are pregnant however, the chances of you being pregnant are very slim.

  • With an IUD, if you do get pregnant there's a strong chance that it will be a tubal anyway. We've never used a condom since I had Mirena and haven't gotten pregnant yet (1 yr) Don't stress about it yet :-)

  • Here are some suggestions on how you can know for sure....1) take a hpt or 2) go to a doctor or 3) all of the above. These are the best ways to know for sure.

  • Are you late???

    If not, then I wouldn't worry about it. IUD's are pretty effective, so it's likely that you are NOT pregnant. However if you are late, then follow cappy1979's advice. Everyone I know with an IUD (Mirena or Paraguard) have had theirs for over 1 year and haven't gotten pg yet even without any other birth control. So don't stress yet.
