  • i actually got pregnant on mirana.. and i was always very sick with it too. i had it two different times and it always made me very tired.. i was always getting sick an dgot migranes horribly!!! as soon as i got it taken out the last time it was because my migranes were taking over my whole life,, i couldnt even go to work. less then 3 hours after i got it taken out my migrane was gone and i havent had one since.. i was also very stressed when i had it, was emotional sometimes and got overwhelmed very easily..

  • i have a ton of pregnancy symptoms. i hate the thing. i am getting it out, because i dont like the feeling of being preggers when i am not. i took tests and they all came back negative. it is very possible to have most pregnancy symptoms and not be though. i havent had a period since the first month either. the doctor told me that was normal though with some women.

  • I recently had mine removed as well. I was having heart palpitations, head aches, water weight, abnormal periods, and just didn't feel healthy. I feel SOOOO much better now that I've had it removed. I feel normal again and my periods are normal again. I would take a test to be sure and call your dr. Good luck to you.

  • I had that IUD for 5 years, never had a problem. I didn't get my period for most of the time, sometimes occasional spotting, i never got pregnant while I was using it. The only thing is I had to go in a few times in the beginning to have the strings cut shorter, they were hurting my SO, but besides that I loved it!

  • I have had mine a week and the doctor said very irregular or absent periods is completely normal and actually happens 70 percent of the time :) The mirena web site has a ton of info on it!
