Hi, I Just wanted to see if I chose the right thing to do. Six months ago I got into a bad accident and was prescribed 5 mg of Percocet to take up to 4 times a day if needed. I was put on the mirena bc my OBGYN said it would be dangerous to get pregnant considering the trauma my body went throug. Well sure enough my husbands "super sperm" still managed to get me pregnant! I told my dr I was done taking my Meds and honestly didn't think it would be a problem at all , but it was. My dr insisted he did not want me to stop cold turkey , but to do a 2 month taper . I told him there was no way I was putting this type if drug into my body for 2 more months while I was growing a life inside me , but he tried saying there is no known fetal risk while taking this drug. What would you do?
