i just recently found out i was pregnant and I'm on mirena and i have had the mirena in me for more then 2 years now...i am deathly scared on what is going to happen.i dont know if the baby would be all deformed or if i will even be able to have to baby full term..i would not want to get a abortion but i am not ready for a baby again..im having a hard time supporting me and my son. my sons father will not do anything for him so if i have this baby i might end up on the street with my two kids and no one to help. when i seen that i was pregnant again i was in utter shock.. i was this is a lie..im not supposed to get pregnant on mirena. ladies tell me what u think i should do.. my obgyn is tellin me i have to wait 2days for my blood results to come back b4 i can get the mirena taken out. even tho i want her to just take it out now so nothing happens

Yes mirena thins out the uterine lining but your not telling everyone the whole story. There are 3 factors that work TOGETHER to prevent pregnancy. 1- the hormones in mirena cause the cervical mucus to thicken to prevent sperm from entering the uterus. 2- the hormones prevent sperm from being able to reach and/or fertilize the egg. 3- thins the uterine lining. I am not judging you on if you approve of these devices or not, I just think that all information should be given, not just what people want to say to enforce their beliefs.

I got pregnant on the mirena iud, worst thing that could happen, it ended up being a tubal pregnancy and had to spend my birthday in pain at the hospital. Got out 3 days later after I had the methotrexate shot. Read that a lot of people have gotten pregnant on mirena.

Laura H, as a response to your comment, the fertilized egg passes almost immediately. In the 3-4 days it takes for the group of cells to be expelled, it is still not a fetus. It is simply a group of cells with the ability to become human life. You won't even have enough HCG to detect a pregnancy, let alone consider it a viable life. To say it's like one of your children is like saying every menstrual cycle or sexual encounter that does not end in a baby is a waste of egg. Just because it fertilizes does not mean it is a baby, or ever should be. It is still an embryo, not a fetus. It has no blood, no brain, and no heart. Not to make light of the situation, but your comments reminded me of "Every Sperm is Sacred" from Monty Python.

It is unlikey to become pregnant with mirena and other IUDs becaus if you do conceive the devise will terminate the pregnancy. Mirena will thin the uterine lining and make it next to impossible for your baby to implant and form a placenta. Then the baby will dissintigrate and be flushed out with your next cycle and you will never know it happened. I feel nauseous when I think about all the babies being aborted by mirena. I am strongly pro-life and I don't want to offend anyone but I want to make sure you all know what you are doing to your "babies" . I will mention that mirenaworks other non abortion ways to prevent pregnancy but there is no way to know how many times you conceive and abort while using mirena. I would love a worl with no abortion and no IUDs but that's not going to happen so I only hope to inform anyone who is unaware of what your doctor chose not to mention. They say it thins the uterus but usually leave out how that ends up killing any embryos you conceive

Umm, take it out? That's what I would do! Then again I'd NEVER risk using an iud, there ate way too many serious and permanent side effects.
Heck no. Not worth it.
I use a diaphragm and condoms. No risks.

I have had the Mirena for 7 years, of course I am on my 2nd one, but anyone I have all symptoms of pregnancy, they just get worse & worse, its nothing more than side effects to the Mirena, I feel like I have been preg for 7 years now, the side eff ects have never gotten better, now every one is different, but a lot of you sound like me, so you are probably just having side effects, because like I said they get worse & worse..but hey what can you do???

I had it for 3 years, no issues at all. In fact, I was pregnant again within 3 weeks of getting it removed. ( I lost the baby though, I believe it was due to the PCOS)

Also, when ladies are saying that a baby is a baby from the time the sperm enters the egg, are you saying that it is abortion for the millions of women who have eggs fertilized and implated even though they don't stick? They are using the eggs knowing that all aren't going to work, but do it anyway.

I really think some people just go too far on that whole subject.

I heard Planned Parenthood no longer uses Mirena because of all the side effects.
I was thinking about using it, not now. Probably just get my tubes tied.

[deleted account]

Do the research. People are more likely to tell you about their negative experiences then their positive ones. Especially when that is what you asked for. That won't give you an accurate poll and doctors abilities and peoples needs are all different. Good luck with your choice.

I have the Mirena IUD have had for a few months now...I haven't had any problems with it. As I was told by my dr that there WILL be some spotting for a while but other than it's normal. Now SOME people might not be able to handle the hormones in it, thats why even the commercial says "ASK YOUR DOCTOR IF MIRENA IS RIGHT FOR YOU" Helpful to listen and read the fine print, at any rate, nope, not pregnant, I love it and I don't have any bad side affects! Just be sure to ask your doctor if it would be something good for you if you want it. It's alway good to research and ask a health pro before just going on a whim and doing it :) I'm sure the ladies who have it asked first!

Here is my 2 cents! I have had the Mirena for about 6 months now. my Dr. said that the first 6 months there is spotting and I may have heavy periods (I have had the spotting, not heavy periods)....So I am coming up to the 6 month mark, where the spotting should slow down or even stop and I believe it is. As for pregnancy, I have not gotten pregnant on mirena, nor have any of my friends. My Dr says it could happen (very minimal chance of it though). They don't hide any of those facts!

As for the whole abortion thing, Laura, I respect what you are saying, but you are saying it on the wrong site. Like someone said earlier, start another thread concerning pro-life and birth control methods. Give other options for those woman who do want to know more about it. I do have to say, I did feel a little belittled by the way you phrased things and that definitely should not be the case! I do NOT feel that I am killing a baby by using Mirena, even after the way you keep phrasing it (which is just not a nice way to say how you feel). Like I said, I respect what you are trying to do for your cause and beliefs, but belittling people who are on it, for the right reasons, should not feel wronged.

I have had my IUD for almost a year now and I like it just fine. I bled for three months straight when I first got it put in and I had aweful painful cramps too (which I never had befgore my IUD), then my bleeding stoped and now I spot a little here and there but I have not had a normal period, and the spotting usually only lasts for a few days, I still get cramps but they are not horriably painful like when I first had my iud put in, usually if I just take some midol they go away. I was really worried that mirana wouldnt work and i would have to get my tubes tied, I dont plain on having another baby but I just dont feel right about getting my tubes tied it just seams so final, but if mirana didnt work I would have had to because I got pregnant with twin girls on the pill and got pregnant for my son on depo, and I was on depo for 6 years! So I like my mirana it was painful when it was put in and it I had to get through alot of pain and bleeding when it was first put in but now that the bleeding and cramps are gone I havent had any problems.

I also wanted to comment on the comment that laura wrote about mirana abortin babies, as one of teh other ladies said at the point you are saying that mirana is flushing out the "fetus" its not a fetus or baby yet.. its a bunch of cells, there is no blood, heart, brain and as the other lady said if you were to do a pregnancy test you wouldnt even regester as being pregnant yet. Its pretty DRAMATIC to say that mirana is aborting babies. I dont mean to sound rude but I feel really bad for the young girl who commeted after reading your post that she was scared, crying and wanted her mirana removed.

I got pregnant on Mirena with my third baby and my baby is perfectly fine,thank God; I think you should be careful on posting things on here, people have diferent opinions and we should respect that, some moms like me feel like their families are complete with the children they have, I don't think birth control should be related to abortion, that's just insane; I'm pro-life too, once you get pregnant, but I think we should avoid while we are not ready for a baby, and that's what birth control, is, I also want to mention that besides being a mom, we are wives, girls, women who love our husbands and want to show them so in a personal way...who's whilling to give that up?

Amen Melanii!



I would also like to add that anyone who is having uncomfortable side effects of the Mirena (which uses hormones) should ask their doctor about ParaGuard (which uses copper). I didn't react well to hormones, but the copper IUD has had no side effects for me at all.



Although I am one of those who experienced pregnancy while using a ParaGuard IUD, it is still a very effective method of birth control. According to this table, ParaGuard is ALMOST as effective as female sterilization and Mirena is actually MORE effective. Wow!

I have to ask why there are women on this thread giving their moral objections to the Mirena? This thread is for women who have had or are thinking about having Mirena. Anything else seems grossly inappropriate - if you want to debate contraception and abortion, start your own thread. Then you can talk to women who actually want your opinion. If you can't stand the thought of losing your alleged "babies" I suggest you stop having sex.
As for myself, I used the Mirena coil for two and half years and loved it, after the first few months I had zero bleeding, and never had a pregnancy scare. For anyone with heavy or painful periods it is a blessing. When I wanted to conceive I did so within 6 months of having it removed, and at the age of 34 I'm pretty happy with that! It's not going to be right for everyone, but every contraception has it's drawbacks. Oh, and I would certainly recommend having the strings clipped short, my hubby could also feel them during sex...

I got pregnant after 6 years with a ParaGuard Copper IUD. I miscarried at 12 weeks.

My husband and I gave it a lot of thought and decided that we really had one more baby coming after all! So we didn't put a new one back in. I was pregnant within two months.

I had a ParaGuard put back in after the baby was born. That was seven years ago and I have had no problems since.

Precious Mommies!
A child can be conceived... and, if you understand how many days it takes in development before it wants to implant on/in the uterine wall.... you will then be informed to know that the little embryo cannot
and therefore
... you've just tossed one of your children away!
It was living and growing and rolling around trying to implant but the IUD wouldn't allow it ... so it died.
I had a friend in Billings MT who had an IUD device and her baby continued to grow (they didn't want more children just YET!) and that precious infant was born with the IUD in the side of its head... and died within days... you talk about painful!
Doctors will tell you otherwise, but I knew her personally !

I'm in college now it we just got done talking sexual things like protection and disease and I learn that many of the women in got pregnant off of all the diffent type of birth control. In your case that is possible a classmate got pregnant twice off of the IUD. My teacher inform me that it is ok to ask your mate to wear protection during sex because the male condom is the most effective way to prevent pregnancy. There is a chance to get pregnant with all of the different method of birth control and they also effect your health.

i had the mirena IUD a few years ago, didn't get pregnant but it was horrible, i could feel it all the time, i kept it for 18 months but couldn't stand it any more. A month after i had it removed i developed BIH which basically is fluid on the brain and causes symptoms of a brain tumor i am still suffering with this 2 years later and it's all because of the minerva IUD not all women are the same but i just thought i'd share my experience.

I have had my IUD since October. I do have occasional cramping which is from my cycle, but because I do not bleed that much during periods I do not always realize it is a period. I have endometriosis which means my periods can be horribly painful, but with Mirena I have not had periods as bad as before. It is an amazing thing. No pregnancy so far also.

I had it twice. The first time was 7 years ago after I had my third child. I wanted to get fixed and the doctor said I was too young and offered the mirena instead. I had cramps and heavy bleeding for the first three months and after that just slight spotting. I was told it only lasted for 5 years so after the 5 years was up I had another one put in. One month after the second one was put in I was pregnant. It did not kill my baby as he is now 13 months old. It fell out after I became pregnant. We decided that we did not want to risk another accident and my husband got fixed. Besides the second one not working it was the best birth control for me as I easily became pregnant on pills, that is how two of my four children were concieved.

l have had the Mirena for 2 years and it is great. It is a big plus not having periods or light ones.It is important for the doctor to check the position of the Mirena every once in a while. My friend had to get hers out because it moved out of the uterus area. I got the Mirena after having a Copper IUD. With the copper IUD i had an etopic pregnancy and was rushed into emergency 7 weeks in. so not a fan of the copper IUD.

Touchy subject for some... I have had the copper T for six years and have had none of the symptoms I have read here... I figure this, if you are seeking contraseption then what difference does it make how it works... If you are worried about "aborting a FETUS" then don't use any of it...PERIOD Inform yourself, do your research, and make the choice that is best for you... Tell others your personal stories, not boggieman stories of what could or could not happen... That is what your doctors and the package inserts are for... No your body and your mental... If you cannot handle the thought of what could happen, then don't get it... If you feel that something is wrong, get it taken care of... Wake up women, its your body, your mind, your choice... Inform yourselves...

ya I did somechecking and found that the birth control I used for 9 months also had thinning lining as a prevention. And it said straight off that this caused fertilized embryos to dissipate. So I know I'm not all knowing:) but I felt strongly when I learned about mirena and I can not live with myself if I failed to inform others who think like me. I'm not trying to argue other beliefs on when a baby is a baby. So thankyou for tipping me off to the pills!

I have had Mirena in for about a year and a half, and haven't had any problems or scares. For the first 6 months or so I had irregular bleeding but since them my periods are back on track. I've heard of people getting pregnant with their IUD's but I don't know if they are telling the truth, or using that as an excuse. My mom's Mirena fell out twice, so she is back on depo shots. Overall I have liked having the Mirena.

Surly before any of us make the decision on birth control or any other medical mater that is by choice you research it fully, as a quick goggle search on most topics will bring you a wide range of resource's to aid in your dissension making process.
Anyone who just dose what is suggested to them is not being responsible for there own well being. in my opinion at least

I had the Mirena and LOVED it. My insurance changed and doesn't cover it anymore, and it's too expensive for me to just up and get one right now. Or I would. Hubs is snipped, but I loved not having a period.



Honestly, I'm a little frustrated at Laura's bullying here. We aren't all going to agree, and being angry and belittling isn't going to change anyone's mind. I believe it's a baby when the pregnancy test is positive, myself. I don't get why people are hung up on the Mirena when any hormonal birth control works exactly the same way.



Besides, if I had ZERO periods for three years, where did all the "abortions" go? There were no periods. If there was a zygote or embryo there, did it just hang out for three years? Would I not have gotten an infection? The phenomenon of fertilized eggs not attaching occurs in women not using birth control, too. What are these women "guilty" of?



I'm glad you have such strong convictions, Laura, but your hostility here is counterproductive. As for me, I'll do the best I can with what I have, and settle the matter with God when the time comes.

I actually had the same - BUT then my period ended up staying for almost a month AND it was sooooo heavy ! i went to see my ob/gyn about it and they did some tests and i found out a week later that had a thyroid problem ! Now i have to take medicine for the rest of my life . I don't really know if the mirena caused the thyroid problem or not , i researched it and there was some evidence that they may be linked together but i'm not sure. and my doctor insists that they are not.

I am currently using mirena (had it put in august 2009). i had one full blown period after it was placed the month after and ever since, the only period symptoms i get are cramping (not near as bad as my usual period cramps), some bloating (but i know i wouldnt get that if i didnt eat so much salty foods around that time of the month and if i cut back on my caffeine intake), moodiness (yeah i still get the bitchies when im due for aunt flo), and usually only one day of very light spotting..i dont even need a pad anymore! i have had one actual very light period (that was last month) and it only last maybe 24 hours :) . Had one pregnancy scare (test was negative) and gonna do another test in about a month or so and keep doing them every few months or so just to make sure. i dont know if i'm going to get it again after my 5 years are up or not...might just go with something more permanent...anyone heard anything good about the essure procedure? if so let me know...i really dont want any scars from gettin any so-called "cut ya open NON INVASIVE surgeries" (dont ya love that? its non invasive but we do have to cut you open to do it).

Ive been looking it to this as Kid wise im Done !!!
I made a deal with my hubby i will get this and when its time is up he will get the snip.
But if as most of you say your period goes away i might just keep it too as i hate having my period,
i personally would happily become a sports model (A hysterectomy leaving the ovary's) if it was not so dam expensive and you where not bed bound for so long after .

i did not have a confirmed pregnancy, but while i had the mirena IUD, had had it for a few years with no period except occasional spotting, one month i had symptoms of pregnancy & then a full blown heavy period, followed a few days later with sensations in my breasts of milk let-down. i had the IUD removed a couple of months later.

Laura,

I was told Mirena works the same way any other hormonal BC works. Every hormonal BC i was on, i was told it could "cause thinning to the uterine lining". As a teen mom who used her BC same time everyday up until i found out i was preg, I had no other choice but something that would almost gaurantee no pregnancies until my fiance and I are BOTH ready for another. If mirena could cause a termination of a pregnancy, than how are some women having babies, or becoming pregnant on the mirena?

I was told there is no "chemical to terminate a pregnancy in mirena". The hormone in mirena is called levonorgestrel. Levonorgestrel (or l-norgestrel or D-norgestrel) is a synthetic progestogen used as an active ingredient in some hormonal contraceptives. Levonorgestrel combined with other synthetic hormones is found in the morning after pill, BUT, my OB/GYN told me all the morning after pill is a stronger form of any other daily oral contraceptive.

I'm sure to some, your information helped them decide if they wanted Mirena or not, but if you are worried about the consequences of sex and you dont want to take the chance of killing an unborn child, in my opinion, no birth control should be used. Abstinence is the only way to guarantee there will be no babies made, and no babies aborted.

I have had mirena in for about a month now... i have no big complaints about having the mirena in. The only thing i do not like, is i can feel the mirena inside of me sometimes if i sit or lay a certain way and i can even feel it press against my cervix at times. I know it is still there cuz i could feel the strings and it doesnt seem they've moved down any also when i have to urinate, it causes an odd sensation and pressure in my lower abdomin and cervix (maybe cuz i had a section?), has anybody else had these symptoms? idk if i should call my DR or not... other than that I LOVE MIRENA!!! I actually have recommended it to other girls i know who have had or are pregnant now...

I had the Mirena, my Doc highly recommended it cause sh had one herself and loved it. Mine fell out within 6 months. I didnt realize it did until I brought up that I was starting to have periods again, they checked and sure enough if was floating inside my abdomin. I was scheduled for surgery 3 days later to remove it. (it was horrible!!!) My girlfriend got pregnant on Mirena. It was a tubular pregnancy and she almost died. She had no idea she was even pregnant until she went to the hospital for severe stomach pain. It had ruptured and that was why she had all the pain/fever. I used to think Mierena was really good until this, I say dont get it, its just not safe.

Laura,

I do actually get what u are saying, and had I been given all the info before I got mirena, I would hae said no thanks. Unfortunetly this was my only option at the time... I really wish I had looked it up before hand, and have definetly learned my lesson. Docs don't always tell the whole story. The only good thing for me is that I have always been able to tell whne I'm ovulating...and haven't since being on mirena. So that is good....

To everyone else, do ur homework. Maybe laura has used the wrong terminology technically, but it is what she feels, and who can fault her? But I will tell u that I don't recoment it because it hurts...badly.... I was in bed for 2 days after.... I have also had consistent and persistant bledding for the last 7 weeks, before that nthing for 2 months...before that it was 6 months of bledding... I don't consisder that healthy.... but the doc is finally sending me for an ultrasound to see what is goig on...so we will see. In the end everyone has to make their own decision, and it is not bad for everyone. Everyone is diff and will react in a diff way.

I used Mirena before I had children (had it for almost 5 years) and I am using Mirena now. I love it and I don't get the terrible side effects like I had when I was using birth control pills. I know 5 other people who have used/are using Mirena and we haven't had any surprises.

Here is my 2 cents! I have had the Mirena for about 6 months now. my Dr. said that the first 6 months there is spotting and I may have heavy periods (I have had the spotting, not heavy periods)....So I am coming up to the 6 month mark, where the spotting should slow down or even stop and I believe it is. As for pregnancy, I have not gotten pregnant on mirena, nor have any of my friends. My Dr says it could happen (very minimal chance of it though). They don't hide any of those facts!

As for the whole abortion thing, Laura, I respect what you are saying, but you are saying it on the wrong site. Like someone said earlier, start another thread concerning pro-life and birth control methods. Give other options for those woman who do want to know more about it. I do have to say, I did feel a little belittled by the way you phrased things and that definitely should not be the case! I do NOT feel that I am killing a baby by using Mirena, even after the way you keep phrasing it (which is just not a nice way to say how you feel). Like I said, I respect what you are trying to do for your cause and beliefs, but belittling people who are on it, for the right reasons, should not feel wronged.

I got pregnant on Mirena with my third baby and my baby is perfectly fine,thank God; I think you should be careful on posting things on here, people have diferent opinions and we should respect that, some moms like me feel like their families are complete with the children they have, I don't think birth control should be related to abortion, that's just insane; I'm pro-life too, once you get pregnant, but I think we should avoid while we are not ready for a baby, and that's what birth control, is, I also want to mention that besides being a mom, we are wives, girls, women who love our husbands and want to show them so in a personal way...who's whilling to give that up?

I had the Mirena, my Doc highly recommended it cause sh had one herself and loved it. Mine fell out within 6 months. I didnt realize it did until I brought up that I was starting to have periods again, they checked and sure enough if was floating inside my abdomin. I was scheduled for surgery 3 days later to remove it. (it was horrible!!!) My girlfriend got pregnant on Mirena. It was a tubular pregnancy and she almost died. She had no idea she was even pregnant until she went to the hospital for severe stomach pain. It had ruptured and that was why she had all the pain/fever. I used to think Mierena was really good until this, I say dont get it, its just not safe.
