I had mirena for a year inbetween pregnancies and currently have had it for another year and a half after my last pregnancy. I've never gotten pregnant while using it.



BUT... I did have weird side effects similar to early pregnancy symptoms where I swore I was pregnant. This went away after the first 6 months. Things like lower back pain, cramping, mood swings, headaches. Now my periods are so light they're practically non-existent and last only 24 hours. Could these be any of the things you're experiencing? Are you certain you're pregnant or is it possible it's just the side effects of mirena?

I'm not pregnant everything was negative. I don't know why the two home test didn't work or show results but I got my period. I guess my cycle is off and came later then it should have but I got it now and I'm not pregnant

Why are you waiting! You need to get to a doctor if you are pregnant because of the complications with pregnancy and the mirena. If I were you I would of already taken a home test and scheduled an appointment, I wouldn't be waiting!

I normally have my regular flow period and it last for a good 5 days sometimes a little longer and I never had like spotting in between I would get discharge but rite after that I got my period and then have discharge again after my period for about 2 days . This time it's really different & I'm just confused , I will most likely take a test to make sure if I'm not then I will find out what's going on

You could be experiencing inplantation bleeding or it could be your periods are just extremely light. There is also spotting associated with mirena in between periods. We don't know! Take the test! And make sure you let us know. ;)

Ok so here's what's going on around the 15-17 I was sure I was gettn my period a couple times I used a tamp. Just to make sure whn I was out it wouldn't show up surprisingly and there was a time when I noticed just a lite red blood so figured ok my period is coming but then that it like it wasn't enough to come out or even come out when I went to the bathroom only enough when I used a tamp. But it was a little an light . Then again yesterday around 4-5pm I noticed when I whiped there was a light red blood I used a tamp thinking ok I'm gettin my period but then today theres like nothing at all again just a light red and it's just a little bit that don't come out but will go on the tamp if I use one....what do you guys think should I still get a test cus now I'm really confused on what's going on...????!!!

That's good I'm glad everything is going great for you...I just felt scares like everything has been normal & going perfectly fine but I haven't got it yet and I just been feeling weird and different. I think I'm going to get a test just to make sure and to make sure it's still in place cus I only have just about 2 yrs left till I need to get it changed. I do plan on getting it replaced with a new one when the time is up and I need to I just want to make sure that rite now everything is going ok & nothing is going on...it's the only birth control I like and has actually worked I got pregnant with my daughte while on the pill & I hated the patch....I'm just feelig very different & off so I plan on getting a test I'm scare it might of move out of place and I just so happend to get pregnant .

Hi Jacki

I had my first Mirena inserted just after my son's birth almost 10 years ago now. I remember bleeding lightly but non-stop for about 4 weeks and a bit of cramping initially. (like a period). When that was over no more side-effects! I have successfully had it replaced twice now (approx every 4 - 5 years). I I do not know what a period is any more...never had any more except for a few spots near the end of replacement time. What a pleasure! I will definitely recommend it! During my (monthly) cycle time I would sometimes feel a bit bloated & emotional for a day or so, but no other signs of a period. I am 43 now.

That's what I Been thinking, I just told the hubby today cus I wasn't sure but I couldn't hold it from him & he said we should get a test. I mean I could be over thinking things and just working myself up but I've never missed a period or anything on the meriena so this is very weird and scary to me....I wasn't sure what to do I'm kinda nervous I herd so many things about pregnancy while having the meriena :(

I would get an EPT asap. If you are pregnant you need the Mirena out.

Well I've had it a little over 3 yrs and my daughter will be 4 in October so I figured well they said it last 5 yrs so I'll be fine and not have to worry . I've always had a normal period with it even spotted in between had to wear tampons the normal period thing. This month was different I thought I was going to get it I had all the feelings that I was going to but still havent got it yet when I should have.I just feel weird I'm feeling tiered, like I get weird feelings in my stomach also I'm kinda peeing out of the normal. It's just I've never had a problem and ways had a regular period on the mereina this month its just different and weird..

I never got pregnant on it, but had a horrible experience with it. I bled and cramped for 6 months. I practically had to BEG my doctor to take it out!!!!
