  • If indeed the mirena has been moved and isn't in the correct position, and you had sex, it is very possible you could be pregnant. I would call your gyno immediatly so set up an appt to see if it has come out of correct position.

  • You need to see your dr NOW!! If you are pregnant, the IUD can cause serious complications in the pregnancy, and baby.

  • my gyno told me it was ok if you could feel the strings. some gyno's don't cut them as short as others do. i would still go get checked just to be sure!

  • This actually just happened to me. I could feel the strings outside of me, then it seemed to go back into place.A few days later something was poking me and I felt and the Mirena was actually upside down, so I called the doctor and she said it was ok to pull it out. I am just waiting to see if i'm pregnant or not too.
