Can I be Preggers on Mirena?! {:\

So here it is..I am on Mirena, and (in a few hours) will be 2 days late for my period; which have been regular for 4 1/2 years now. I had it place August 2006. I have cramps, moddiness, backache, tender breasts, and have taken a pregnancy test. Which came out negative (I did not used first morning urine) I just went for what I knew. I have 2 more tests on reserve that my poor excited husband gladly ran out to get (bless his soul). I am not sure if I am indeed not preggers, or could I be getting a false result because of ectopic prgnancy or something. I am ready to pull my shiny brunette tresses out at this point. WTheck should I do? Anyone have this issue ever, and ended up prego? Helllllp me please; and thanks so much for reading this. {:/

  • Mirena is bad news. It screws with your body really bad. Look up all the complaints on it! I've even seen your complaint on the list! Our friend's wife had it and had to have a hysterectomy at age 29. He caused her to hemmorage.

  • It could happen I would call the doc first thing on monday and get a blood test... an IUD pregancy is not always a good thing.

  • I know someone who had an ectopic on mirena. I had an ectopic (not on mirena), but it took 5 weeks 2 days to show up on a pregnancy test for me. I know everyone is different. Sometimes when you have an ectopic your HCG levels spike fast and sometimes they lay low like mine did. I would call your doctor on Monday if you still haven't gotten it. With my ectopic I have bad cramps on one side and I also had horrible bowel pressure when I went to the bathroom.

  • If you are, which is RARE with Mirena, go to the doc ASAP. It can be life threatening. Personally, I would call Monday morning if your pregnancy tests have all turned out negative to be sure. If you get a positive test, go to the emergency room.
    I have had Mirena since 2008 with no issues.
