IUD question .....

ok so i know i am not pregnant but the question is about every 3 to 6 months or so i get the symptoms. The sickness, craving, a little cramping so i take a test to ease my mind and NEG. which is a good thing but dang it stresses me out. So i wanted to know if this was happening to anyone else with an IUD (mirena)

  • I had the IUD, but didn't have that problem. I did get pregnant while on it so be careful.

  • did with me my pms were stronger and i think its because the mirena has hormones in it like the pill

  • YES! I was getting the exact same thing but I would get them every month, right around the time I was due for a period. I didn't have a period for almost two years, but the hormones will cause the symptoms. Eventually I got mine removed and then I got pregnant. :-)

  • I had similar problems with it... i don't know why it would happen but.. it was always a neg pregnancy test.. i got it taken out and i got pregnant soon after.. i had a miscarriage 8 weeks in to it.. i ended up pregnant again.. 6 months later.

  • It had came out of place. They say if it comes out of place it is not effective. After I had that baby I got my tubes tied. Lol
