How many of you had the Mirena IUD and got pregnant?

I have had the Mirena IUD since June 2007. For the past two weeks I have had all the pregnancy symptoms, nausea, cramping, fatigue, headaches, bloating. I haven't had a period since April 2008 and I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Has anyone had anything similar happen to them? Maybe I'm testing too early?

  • there is a .1% chance for you to get pregnant on it. it could happen though. You need to go and talk to your doctor, because if you are, the device could implant inside your baby. Although i would hope your doctor gave you a test before she placed it, meaning you werent pregnant in june. and it does cause you to miss some periods. if you are concerned, talk to your doctor.
