  • If you have the Mirena iud it is normal not to have a period. I would take a test, but it is not likely you are pregnant. If it is negative, then don't worry. I don't really get a period with mine any more either.
    If you are worried you can feel for the strings, if you find them it is really unlikely you would be pregnant.
    Good Luck!

  • My cousin got pregnant on the Merina, and was a few months along before she ever knew. They say its very unlikely but when she found out and they checked everything Merina was still in and the baby was a chunky healthy baby boy with no problems except he was totally unexpected.

  • im on mirena. you can get a period. they can be normal, or completely abnormal. i dont really get a period. its more of a brown discharge. i had a friend get pregnant on mirena. you should go to the doctor and find out right away even if you think its nothing to worry about.
