  • You can get pregnant on any birth control, IUDs included. No birth control is 100%. I suggest going to your doctor.

  • hey! i've been on mirena almost a full 5 years now and everyone is a bit different on it. mirena is more dependable than any other method, but it still isn't 100 percent. it's normal to have a period for awhile...that's probably your body adapting to a newer lighter cycle. i was concerned too. i was cramping pretty bad at first...i must have called the doc 50 times :) but it's ok, that's their job and that's your body! i'ts normal for your periods to stop entirely in a few months. sometimes mine stop, but i mainly still get them, just way lighter. and i spot from time to time too. go ahead and call your doc and tell them your symptoms. if you're running a fever or something it might be that its' just not meant for you. but definately call them and you can look up mirena ...they have a site just for ya and even a video.

  • I agree with all the PP. Definitely ask, because you always want them to know and they know what to worry about much better than any of us here-- but spotting, backpain, cramping- had those to some degree the whole year I had that in. In fact, I had to buy pregnancy tests because I would never have had a clue.

    It did get better, but it never totally went away for me.

    Good luck!
