Someone help, I don't want to just be paranoid. I've been on the Means 3 months now, and last month my.periods was way lighter than usual and this month it hasn't come at all. The other night.my husband and I had sex and I was spotting afterwards but no period. I'm having pregnancy symptoms and last month I checked the string but couldn't feel it. I'm scared to call my.Gyn because she just tells me it's normal. I feel nauseous a lot, dizzy, lightheaded, bad back pains, weight gain in my tummy, terrible bloating, and my boobs get that "letdown" feeling. Just tell me if I'm being paranoid or if I have a reason to worry.

If you're finding it awful maybe get it taken out but I've heard all those symptoms are normal. I often feel pregnant and I'm on the pill. The lighter periods is what hormonal birth controls are supposed to do so your uterus lining is thinner= less chance of conception.

Check with your doctor. Some women have problems, and some don't, and sometimes the problems are related to the Mirena and sometimes they aren't.

Have the merena removed. I had nothing but problems with that thing. I always felt it, when I sat down or stood up. It gave me old blood periods. I felt like crap all the time. The string often curls up and gets stuck so not feeling it means nothing. I suggest having it removed and get alternative birth control. It probably won't go away. The boob thing I'm not sure of unless they are being squeezed too much. These symptoms are normal at first but after 3 months I'd say it's not going to get better. Doctors always tell it's all "normal", well it's not normal. It's not good for your body.

Most women have Mirena put in fairly soon after a pregnancy, too, when your body is readjusting itself with hormones and whatnot. I also found that my thyroid function changed after both my pregnancies, too, and that can cause a whole crazy bunch of symptoms, like hair falling out and stuff. Sometimes what we think are symptoms caused by the mirena are things caused by something else entirely.

If you're unsure, get an HPT, but I've been on Mirenea for almost four years, and I almost never have a period anymore. it might just be your body adjusting.

get a pregnancy test. I have Mirena and sometimes I have a period and sometimes I don't. I was having prego symptoms but turned out that I was just worried.

What's worrying me is the lack of any period this early, and the lack of string. My husband and I actually had sex (unprotected) about a week and a half after I got it, and we've had fully unprotected sex multiple times since then, that's why I am a little worried. Hopefully you're right though and it's all just in my head, if it takes too long though I might go to my gyn. We don't want another baby yet

Also, my period had always been on time, within the same 5 days, but these last 2 months it's been too light

I would wait.. I had the mirena for almost 2 years.. i couldn't feel the string the last few months I had it in... since you've only had yours in for a few months your body probably hasn't regulated your hormones yet...since the mirena has a constant flow of hormones your body just has to get used to the hormones.. my boobs were sore every few weeks and it sucked because it got badd.. every symptom you are having I had around the time I was to get my period.. I spotted almost every day for the first 4-5 months of having the iud and then after that I only got a period once every few months and it was super light and only needed a panty liner for a few hours and then it was gone.. it was great.. but made me parnoid about being pregnant.. I gained a few pounds,, nothing drastic but ended up getting mine taken out because it was causing my uterus and pelvis to get inflamed and painful.. every person is different though so I wouldn't worry too much about it.. besides if it's only been a few days since you last had sex with your husband more thanlikely wouldn't know you were pregnant yet anyway... but if you're really that worried tell your gyn that you want an ultrasound to check where the string is and they'll know immediately if it's in place or not.. I had to do that twice because I couldn't feel the string but everything was fine.

Well I would wait. It's only been 5 days......but to be certain you can always take a test. They have very reliable EPT's at the dollar store actually. That's how I found out I was pregnant with my second.

Mirena is tricky. I was on it but bled for 4 months. I would take a test. Find a different OB!!!
