i had the iud for 1 1/2 years now. I have lost about 20 pounds in the last 2 months. Last nite i felt strong pressure in my vagina. It felt like i had to push. when i did push a little bit of blood came out. My period was suppose to come but nothing came i only had like less than a teaspoon of blood. Are those any signs of pregnancy???

Hi all! I, too, have a Mirena IUD and have had it in place for about 2.5 years. Lately I have gained weight (and can't lose it... I NEVER have problems losing!), have had some morning sickness feelings, have been eating more than usual, and in the past few days I have had some minor cramping. I've also had some brownish-pink spotting that I've not had with my IUD (I've not really had a period since it was inserted). I took a home test that read negative, the doctor did a urine test that says negative, and they have scheduled a blood test. My husband believes I AM pregnant. It pregnancy with an IUD THAT common? What do these symptoms sound like to you all? HELP! I'm so lost!

I have had a copper IUD for 9 years. I already have 4 kids, and I just found out that I am pregnant. I don't keep track of my periods, but I think I am around 8 weeks. I have an appointment for an ultrasound tomorrow and then the doctor wants to remove the IUD if it's not too close to the baby. I can't seem to find too much information on which way is better. I wish I could hear more success stories. I feel much better to find this site. How are you that are recently pregnant doing?

I also have the Mirena IUD and have been increasingly experiencing really sore breasts and fatigue. I passed the fatigue off as a result of working a lot more lately but after reading all these posts I'm wondering if pregnancy is possible. I have 3 kids (7, 5 & 4) and have had the IUD for 2 yrs, have not had my period since 1.5 yrs ago but have never experienced the breast tenderness like this since the IUD was put in. I also had a LEEP procedure done this June for abnormal cells(which I read somewhere that an IUD can attribute to in some cases). Thankfully after a infection, treated by penicillin, I am cancer free & healthy but I wonder if the procedure might have shifted the IUD...is this even possible?! I do know that the string is still out of the cervix. I have had intercourse since I healed from the procedure so I'm thinking pregnancy is possible even with the IUD, I should probably get a pregnancy test. Also I've had a change in discharge, which from what I remember from being pregnant with my youngest is another sign?! Thanks for any advice.

OK, I have had the IUD for 7 months... my son is 9 months old..... I have had only one regular period since having the IUD and that was the 3rd week of June.... since then...about 2 weeks ago I had some spotting, then nothing... now for the last week feel like i'm preg again.... have all the symptoms as i did with my son..... so I took two preg tests by ANSWER brand and both were neg.... despite no current med ins.... i went to the dr and they said it was almost impossible to be preg with the IUD in.... so he did a urine test and it was also neg..... he did a pelvic exam and said nothing in that region indicated a pregnancy... but he couldnt find my IUD... the strings werent out and even with pushing on my uterus and pushing up from my pelvis he couldnt locate it..... he is thoroughly conviced that since the urine test said neg i am not preg... but i am not convinced.... he basically sent me home and said i looked fine to him and i dont look pregnant... he wants me to see a gyno next week and let them take it from here..... i'm really nervous because I thought there was a good chance I could be preg before I found out that they couldnt locate the IUD..... now I really think the stakes are good for me to be preg.... but i'm scared because if we are preg again we dont want to lose the baby... and the dr says i'm fine.... so does anyone have a similar story or advice to give? i'm freaking out.... ?

I had an ultrasound. My IUD was about an inch away from the baby. The baby was pretty high up, and my IUD was pretty low, so they thought it could safely be removed. My doctor removed my IUD. It's been 3 1/2 weeks and everything looks good. My OB said if I were going to miscarry from it, it would happen in the first week.

hi i've had the iud for three months and this month im a week late and im sick and very tired could i be pregnant?

I had a Mirena IUD installed in September 2003. Yesterday I tested positive for pregnancy with a home test, and for sure feel like I am! This would be our third child, I am calculating that I would be about 7 weeks. I talked to a midwife and am supposed to go in tomorrow for an ultra sound. I am elated about the pregnancy, but very nervous because of the risks involved. I was up at 4 this morning reading all of the posts on the other thread, and I just now reading through this one. I found an article that shows with IUD removal there is a 25% chance of miscarriage. Would love to hear from any moms who carried to term with or without the Mirena. And you better believe I am getting the serial number off of mine!!!! ;-)


Granola - October 9th, 2006 9:40 PM

Okay, i went to the doctor today and was treated with EXTREME skepticism. I had an appointment to see the doctor and they sent the nurse instead, who told my urine test was negative. She suggested I had a urinary tract infection. I asked them to draw blood for the HCG test and was told they would and the results would be back in about a week. That was not acceptable to me, as I know that removal of the IUD in pregnancy had to be done early to reduce risk of miscarriage. I asked her how I had a positive result on my home pregnancy test 2 days ago, and negative here. She implied my test was defective and again suggested I had a UTI. I found all this very suspicious. They took blood and I should have the results tomorrow. I KNOW I AM PREG and I am going to get a second opinion. WONDERING if the doctors have a protocol they are required to follow with BERLEX to screen for pregnancy. I am very VERY SUSPICIOUS right now. If they wait a week to treat me, the baby may abort on it's own. If the bloodwork is negative I am going to another doctor for a second opinion. Will post this up. I am also wondering why this is the only forum up online about this issue. Maybe Berlex is shutting others down. If anyone else is curious about this one, please let me know. Thanks!

Can someone give me some advice? I'd been having left sided pain. I went to see my GYN and the ultrasound confirmed a cyst and my IUD dropped to mid range in my uterus instead of the high position. Now I'm bleeding between cycle. I've been sick to my stomach, and my breasts are sore and bigger. I've never been pregnant. How can an ultrasound determine between a cyst and an ectopic pregnancy?


tammyrene - October 30th, 2006 6:26 PM

I also have the mirena and think I am pregnant...I have a little girl that just turned 4 this month and I had the IUD put in 8 weeks after I had her. I have took 3 tests and they all come out neg. but I have been having so many signs such as palvic pain, tender breast, tired all the time, sick to my stomach with different smalls so on. My last visit to my OB she thought I was but i was not, my string was just lost. In the back of my mind I keep telling myself that Im not , it would be great if I was Im just scared that I would miscarry. Help what do you think I should do I would rather be safe then sorry but I thought I was doing that when I got this IUD.


jpkelly422 - November 5th, 2006 9:25 PM

Ladies, you are scaring the bejesus out of me! I had the Mirena IUD put in about 5 months ago. Had my period like normal the first couple months, now I just spot throughout the month. That was expected though so I really thought nothing of it. Past couple of weeks though I've had symptoms; breast itching like crazy (kinda weird!) and slight leakage, emotional wreck, indigestion, weight gain and INTENSE sexual desire. I still didn't think anything of it because most of these symptons can be caused by stress and other things. My boyfriend mentioned he was worried I might be pregnant and I explained I'm on the best birth control there is. I came here for piece of mind - Lord knows I'm not letting him see this website!!!! I'm going to take a test in the morning and I'll let you all know what happens.


jpkelly422 - November 6th, 2006 8:49 AM

NEGATIVE!!!! Very happy about that!!! I wish you girls the best of luck:0)


td0805 - November 16th, 2006 8:53 AM

I had the Paraguard IUD inserted 5 months ago, and am 2 weeks late. Could I be pregnant? I usually am on time like clockwork. Anyone?


cljsjuliet - November 20th, 2006 2:09 AM

I am so happy to have found this site. I have had a mirena IUD for a year now and over the past couple of weeks i havent been feeling right. I am hungrier than usual, i am gaggy in the morning, im not spotting like i usually did every month, my boobs are achy, im peeing more than normal. I did a test 2 weeks ago that was negative but i am taking another one tomorrow and if that one is negative I am going to still call my ob to have her check the placement of the IUD because the strings are up alot higher than they were before. this will be my third child if i am pregnant. my doctor told me that the IUD would be the best birth control after i had my last child, but I am not so sure anymore after reading some of the stories on here.


jtsmom04 - November 20th, 2006 1:55 PM

I just got faint reading how many women are getting pregnant on the IUD, especially the same that im on, Im 5 days late on my period, and i havent been late in the two yrs almost that its been in.
