  • I was told to go back after having it for three months to make sure it was still in he right position THEN I only had to get it checked yearly. You shouldn't be getting sick from it since the low dose of hormones is deposited directly into your uterus instead of having to travel through your blood stream.

  • yep, and i got a rash like i did with my first pregnancy. it did subside, but i had a checkup shortly after i had it put in, and explained to the nurse and my doc what had happened, and they weren't concerned with it (and i had a great doc), but i had taken a pregnancy test, and it came back negative. if you're nervous about it, make an appointment..pregnancy with mirena is possible, when i had my ob appointment for this pregnancy i didn't put on my paperwork that i had had the iud removed back in march, and the nurse that took all my stats had told me that she knew 2-3 people that had gotten pregnant with mirena in within that month. again, if you're concerned make an appointment, it'll put your mind at ease to know for sure that nothing's going on.

  • I have gotten the morning sickness feeling and bad cramps...different pregnancy symptoms off and on since about a month or so after I got Mirena...I have had it for almost 8 months now and the side effects have calmed down the past few months. Hopefully they dont come back though because I was on the verge of getting it out from how sick I felt.

  • I had some pregnancy symptoms as well. I even went as far as to take a pregnancy test but it came out negative. I don't know why I got the symptoms but they did go away. I got mine in September.
