It is very possible to get pregnant with Mirena. I am on Mirena and I have had several friends who are on it get pregnant. The doctors advise them to keep the mirena in during pregnancy. It is not 100% pregnancy preventable. I would take a test. I know that the mirena is working for me because I havent had sex since..... I cant even remember! LOL. I would take a test anyways because if you are in fact pregnant, the Mirena may have some bad affects to the pregnancy. Hope this helps

my daughter willbe 8 months on the 25th and is living proof that the mirena isn't prego proof with a full term birth with no side effects. hope it all pans out for you!

You said the test was negative?? How long have you been having the symptoms?? Is it possible it could be too early to tell, and seeing as you have the mirena the hormones could be throwing the preg hormone off..making the test inconclusive...just a possibility. I personally would call the doctor and see if they could check you or do a blood test....not sure if that is something you would want to do or not...

YES YOU CAN!!! Im on the Mirena and had two miscarriages. The Mirena isn't 100% preggo proof

It is definitely possible. If you have any thought that you might be pregnant you should take a test and contact your doctor because the longer you wait, the more potential harm it could do. A pregnancy test is really not that expensive...the ones at the Dollar Tree are really quite accurate...and in the long run the peace of mind is definitely worth it!
