pregnant on merina?

today i went to my pcp and told her some of the symptoms i am having. she thinks i may be pregnant. now it's not a bad thing, it's just kind of scary since my ob told me not to have more kids and we decided to go with the merina. i have had all of my kids on birth control so we knew there was a chance, but they told us merina was the least likely to conceive on. i wont know if iam pregnany until friday when the blood test come back, but what i was wanting to know is have you or anyone you know gotten pregnant on the merina? have there been any problems?

  • Nope but I had all the symptoms of pregnancy until I got the stupid thing taken out. Bloating, nausea, hormonal changes... the thing should be banned from market.

  • I just had my second one taken out bc I thought I was preg (same symptoms you are talking about). Turns out- the IUD was put in wrong- It was like i wasn't on any birth control so I could have gotten pregnant- luckily i didn't. I had it taken out and will never have one put in again- also, my sex drive is back:) woo hoo!!

  • I had pregnancy symptoms constantly on it. I had it for 3 months & no period. I had mega pain with it too so I called them & told them I wanted it taken out because I couldn't handle feeling pregnant anymore if I'm not. It was embedded hence all the pain & as soon as it was gone, I felt amazing!

    It's known to stop your period & give you pregnancy symptoms.

  • Had it for a year and 9months.... stopped having a period Jan.09 had weird bleeding and took a test Sept 09.... positive pregnancy test Sept 21st 09 and found out it was ectopic Sept 23rd 09. I thankfully, was able to keep my tube because the baby died in my tube and stopped growing.
