I recently found out that i have gotten pregnant while on Mirena IUD. I saw my doctor and had the IUD removed but i was told that i had a 25% chance of miscarriage. Has anyone else gotten pregnant while on an IUD? Did anyone miscarry? Was there any long term effects on the fetus or the baby after birth caused by the IUD? Anything would be helpful to calm my nerves. Thanks.

I personally haven't had this happen, I do have two friends who did, the babies were born healthy no long term effects at all, one did have some bleeding on and off through the pregnancy, the other one just some spotting during the first trimester. As long as your doctor knows he will keep an eye on things. Good luck and congrats
