Can you still get pregnant while on the Mirena?

I am beginning to have symptoms of being pregnant, but I am on the mirena... I would just go and take a pregnancy test, but with both of my kids, it wouldn't show up on a pee test that I was pregnant till 4 and 5 months along in the pregnancy... Is there anyone out there who got pregnant while on the Mirena, or have you heard of anyone that did?

  • Hasn't happened to me personally but it did happen to a friend of mine. I suggest going to dr and getting a blood test, better safe than sorry.

  • It is an incredibly slim chance that you would be pregnant. If you are worried about it you need to go see your doctor and get tested. There are some really bad things that can happen to a baby if you have Mirena so if you are really worried about it go see your doctor.

  • I would suggest going in to do a blood test. The chances are slim but it can happen.
