I'm no longer expecting but I have a question. I have a set of two year old b/g twins, and a four month old son who we conceived while I was on the pill. After we had him I went on the Merina IUD. Is it possible to get pregnant while on the IUD? and if so are the home pregnancy tests accurate with all the hormones that the IUD sends through your system?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

If you have recently had a Mirena removed, do not be surprised to suffer from a vast array of symptoms that mirror pregnancy and/or are discomforting. These include pain, bloating, nausea, sore breasts, mood swings, periods which are not regular, and spotting. This is often just your body readjusting to your new hormone balance. Once Mirena is removed, the contraceptive effects of it should be immediately gone. The average is that around 80 percent of women that try to become pregnant become pregnant within a year of stopping use of Mirena. Most doctors do recommend that you wait at least one menstrual cycle before trying to get pregnant, just to let your body get back into its natural rhythm. Anyway, if you are trying to get pregnant, there's a lot of things that you can do to improve your chances of conceiving. I've bought the 'Getting Pregnant Plan by Michelle Adams e-book' from, it has a lot of information about boost your chances of conceiving, etc

I have been pregnant on other types of birth control and many close to myself on the IUD , but there pregnancies were results of not having it inserted properly and waiting till the doctor does the check up at the 2 month mark , and if you do get pregnant on it there is usually alot of discomfort for sure
