  • The hormone used in Mirena is a "progestin", meaning (not literally) FOR pregnancy. It tricks your body into thinking that it is pregnant already, to suppress ovulation. So, "side effects" of progestins are things that can mimic pregnancy, and colustrum type nipple discharge is one of those.

  • I never had pus stuff come out with either of my pregnancies.

    I would check with your Dr, its possible to get pregnant with any type of contraception, only abstinence is 100% safe. But if you are, having the mirena can be dangerous, so you need to get checked.

    The pus could be a sign that your hormones are off. If you are not pregnant, maybe you need to have some blood work done. :)

  • If you are on Mirena then you are using protection...right? It's possible to get pregnant on any form of birth control.

  • I would say deff possible... there have been soooooo many women on here stating they have gotten pregnant even though they had Mirena... Really from everybody on here i don't think I would get it because it doesn't seem to be that trustworthy to me!
