I took the mirena our in September 2012. Me and my boyfriend have been having unprotected sex since October 2012. I keep showing signs of pregnancy but every month my period comes on and on schedule give or take a day. I have took numerous pregnancy test, all coming back negative. I am wondering if I could still be pregnant and it not show up, if not how long will the medicine in the birth control stay in my body?
Hi! Unless I misunderstood your question, you are having a regular monthly period. That is a good sign that the medication is no longer affecting you. It is also a good sign that you are ovulating and should be able to get pregnant. If you have tried for more than a year without success you should see your doctor about investigating why. You probably just need a bit more time. Also, a good rule of thumb to save you some money is not to test unless your period is late. Good luck! Dr B
