  • Can you feel the strings? If you can you are likely not pregnant. Also a large number of women do not get a period when they have the Mirena. I did gain weight with it, so if you are gaining, it could be from that.

  • Hey! Usually if you feel that strings you should be okay. I had mine put in in February 2007, and I have had a hellofa time with it. I mean sure I can get it out, but it has prevented pregnancy and right now I can not afford any more children- so I just stick with this. (I got pregnant with my youngest while on the pill). All the time though I have signs of a pregnant woman. I have mood swings, food cravings, aches and pains, upset stomach, heartburn. (many of these can be brought on by stress though as well). My main issue was the weight gain, even when I try to lose weight- it is extremely difficult for me. However as far as periods go, mine usually are messed up as well. I could go 2 months without one, and then have one for like 11 days, then go 9 days off and back on for 5 days. Then go another 6 weeks without one, and back to having one for 10 days. Mine is sooo unpredictable while on this IUD.

  • my periods stopped with merina and that is one of the side effects. It took about 3 months for them to stop

  • my periods stopped too with it, but I had so many other problems that it just wasn't worth the health risks to me anymore.
