Are the side effects of Mirena the same as the symptoms of pregnancy?

I've had Mirena since Oct. 24th.
I bled from Oct 24th to Nov 30 or somewhere around there.
I am craving steak. I am craving McDonalds. I want to eat every Reeses Mini PB Cup from here to Philadelphia.
I am crying at little insignificant things.
I am hungry alllll the time.
My breasts are sensitive.
I'm getting fat.
Should I bother taking a pregnancy test?

  • I'm the same exact way!
    I'm pretty worried myself, although I'm still bleeding from like a month and a half ago.
    I have been so hungry, and so bitchy, and I'm getting pretty fat, too, although that's probably because I've been eating so much.

    I think it's just the hormones.
    I actually got mine the same day you did, so maybe these are just some of the symptoms you experience after a month and a half on it??
