IUD with pregnancy symptoms, but negative test....HELP???
I had an IUD put in last Jan after I had my son and every month I have a period(I call it "what's the point period") but this month it hasn't come and I have sore boobs and they feel so heavy now and i'm dischargeing clearish stuff and i'm also having mild cramps off and on. Acouple of days ago I was having ligament pulling down below my belly if I moved wrong or if I sneezed, like I did when I was pregnant with my son. I think my last period was at the beginning of Oct. Well i took a test this morning when my hubby got up for work at 5:30 and it came out negative, could it have been to soon??? Please let me know what you guys think.

I am a 26yr old with a 7yr old daughter.  I have had my Mirena IUD inserted into the vaginal area since 2011 because birth control pills stopped working for me and I was very fertile and not able to handle being a single mother of two if that happened. I have had a cycle ever since i've had the IUD. In the beginning i had a cycle for almost 2 weeks! Now it's been for up to 7 days and regularly comes on time. I have an odor during light spotting which ranges from bright red to dark brown/red in color. The month of June I have not had a cycle which usually would of started around the 15th. I feel bloated and I have noticed i've picked up on eating just about anything. I'm super emotional while on the IUD. My partner claims to have had a vesectomy which means we should not be pregnant! But those are not 100% and neither is not getting pregnant with the Mirena. I'm honestly nervous to get a pregnancy test done as much as I want another child financially this is not the time, either way i'll be disappointed. I think no matter what device the human body is made to reproduce if it wants to fight all the devices and altercations we make for it not to there's still a chance of possiblity. If it's meant to be pregnancy will happen that's what i've learned from all the forums i've read so far. I will check back and update my situation.  Good luck ladies.

If you get pregnant on the IUD do you have to get an abortion? I am realy scared. I don't know who to ask because I am stuck in the states right now and can't go to the doctors.

I too have been having wierd symptoms latly that leads me to belive i may be pregnant....i have had my iud going on 3 yrs now. Recently i have had sore breast, feel sick to my stomach, feel and look bloated, have been having headaches and sharp pains running up and down my sides, im constantly tierd and have been having mood swings. I have taken 3 hpt's in the last month and thay have all read negative but for some reason thats hard for me to believe. Theese are all the same side effects that i had with both of my children. I too like alot of you ladies on here have no insurence so i can not afford to go to the doc and get blood work done, the more i read about pregnancy while having an iud the more stressed i get just knowing what can happen. If there is anyone with actual answers to as why this is going on with so many of us please let us know!!

Hi ALL...
i have had the iud for  yr 1/2 now, i got it after getting pregnant with my 3rd son from the pills. Once i received the merina i wanted it removed because of horrible cramping but the doc gave me the run-around about my body having to get use to it and some of the worries i had was normal. But now i feel pregnant, of course i would know i have had 3 kids... my breast began feeling tender & now just firm, my appetite i believe has increased, i swear i'm feeling movements & my stomach seems rounder to the point were i'm noticing that its becoming harder to fasten my pants. I took an home pregnancy test but it showed negative.. idk if it could be from the hormones of the iud... or if i'm jst tripping and really gaining weight... not that i'm ready for another one (right now) i don't wanna be gaining weight either. I have made my apptmnt to the doc so hopefully i find out what's really going on. Even if i'm not really prego, i'm for sure getting this merina removed. I no longer want to continue to use something that i was uncomfortable with in the first place when i have to still worry about becoming pregnant and if that was to happen the complications a pregnant woman can have with the iud is not worth the risk.

I'm glad I found this site because I thought I was going crazy, Im 32 years old with 2 kids, 12 & 9, and Im on my 9th year with my copper IUD. I have never missed a period in these 9 years, never had prego symptoms and no complications. Ive loved every moment with my IUD, of course until now. The beginning of Oct, I had my papsmear, the doc made me bleed, which never happened before and now after for the past 2 1/2 weeks I have had prego symptoms, nausea, tired, mood swings, mild breast tenderness, and I swear my stomach is a bit firm. I have tooken 2 HPT and both negative. I'm planning to go to the Doc because I'm very concern, if I'm not prego then what is happening, and if I am , did the doc accidently move my IUD??? any one can relate??

Hi, I'm Michelle and I'm 23 years old. I have 2 kids, 4 and 2 yrs old. I got Mirena put in right after I had my 2 year old in June of 2010. Haven't had a period since then. Besides up and down mood swings and weight gain, I haven't had any other side effects.

For a week and a half now I've been feeling:
nauseous all day,
very tired during the day,
can't sleep at night,
sore n sensitive breast n nipples,
lower back pain,
increased libido,
starving sensation after eating 2 hours ago
sensitivity in smells
I'm even convinced I feel flutters in my tummy.

These are about the same symptoms I felt with both pregnancies. I was totally convinced I was pregnant so I bought a pregnancy test Friday and it came out negative. That's when I googled and ended up here last night. I was still convinced I was pregnant, I know my body and it felt just like my last pregnancies.

My husband took me to the ER last night because I had a stomach ache and I was really worried about my "fetus"

They tested my urine and blood and ran a blood count. Both pregnancy test came out negative but my white blood cell count was a bit high so the Dr. assumed I had a problem with my appendix so he ordered a CT Scan.

My appendix was normal but they found a cyst 2 inches big on my ovaries. They convinced me that if I were pregnant the fetus would have showed up on the scan.

So my results - The ovarian cyst gave me pregnancy like symptoms and I maybe a bit psycho lol... Either way, I scheduled an appointment with my OB/GYN to get this IUD out and my husband is setting something up for a Vasectomy.

I was almost convinced I wanted another baby once I thought I was pregnant but now that I'm not, I'm sure I don't want anymore.

I really liked Mirena because of the no menstrual period, but I think anything that messes with you're hormones may drive you MAD!

I am 23. I have had my mirena in since june 2012. my period is 2 months late. I went in to the ER and they did a urine and a blood test and I asked them if they were going to do a ultrasound and they said well its up on what the urine and the blood tests are. I told them I have been pregnant before while i had the mirena but i miscarried. Certain foods and the smell of foods make me ill to my stomach. And I have been having back pain. I have been having all the symptoms that I had when I was pregnant with my daughter. She will me 10 months on the 23rd.

I have been expericing some one the same sypthoms your speaking of ive had my iud in for almost 5 years and now all of a sudden all these sypthoms have me extremely worried, the rush of mood swings, mild cramping in the lower adomen region and, the morning sickness is what is really worrying me and i have taken home tests (2) which both have came up - im hoping to get into the clinic here and see whats going on. I have been reading alot on this and it seems to me there are more and more women becoming pregnant or expecering pregnancey sypthoms like this while having the mirina iud, thats scary in some points of view.

Hello... I'm a mother of 2. I have obviously been pregnant before and I'm feeling the same symptoms as if I am now. I've been using the I.U.D Mirena for almost 3 years and it has been great, until....now! I am sooo emotional, my breast and belly are getting bigger, having cravings and am really tired (just like my previous pregnancy's). But there is a problem. I have taken 2 hpt's (both NEGATIVE), So I made a doctor appointment yesterday and did a blood test (again NEGATIVE). I don't understand how and why I am feeling pregnant if the test's are coming out yo be negative? I am hoping my doctor will agree to giving me an ultrasound to confirm if I AM or NOT. This is driving me mentally crazy!!!!! I have read everyone else's post and cant find the answer to my question. PLEASE>>>If there is anyone out there that can just tell me if they have gone through the same thing and found out if they were indeed PREGNANT. I'm just worried because I have also had an e topic pregnancy before and I don't want anything to happen. P.S. I'm also not 100% on wanting anymore babies. So someone please post so I can understand what is going on. Thanks...and good luck to everyone else. *Breona .A.

I'm having a lot of symptoms of pregnancy and I had the mirena put in this march after I lost my baby in December. The past couple of months I've symptoms my breasts are sore and it pains me to even take a shower or put a shirt on. I've also gained weight and my stomach feels weird. I use to eat pickle all the time and drink the juice. Now the smell of it is making me nauseous and not to mention if I eat them I get sick. The smell of pizza makes me sick. If my boyfriend and I even go to his dads I get sick in the car. I can smell smoke when he comes home from work and I'm a smoker too. I took a test but it came out negative. Help.

This is the second Mirena IUD I have had put in, the first time was right after I had my son, the second time I was overseas on my deployment. The only time I have had a menstrual cycle was the few months between having the first taken out and the second one put in. I have recently started spotting which has never happened before and I also have some pregnancy symptoms ..... Is this normal? I have an appointment in a few days to have it removed but I'm still concerned

Just this year I had my mirena put in. It's was also quite painful for me but all went well.

In the last month I have noticed some big changes in my body. Hightened smell, I can't smoke or drink, random weight gain, vivid dreams, pains, sore boobs and my nipples are changing. There's many more symptoms. I'm 25 days late. I've taken 2 tests both negative. Is it possible I'm pregnant and the tests just don't work for me?

I just got my IUD two weeks ago. I have had bad periods for 25 yrs cramps so bad have to stay in bed take hot baths nothing helps. After talking to my Dr they recommended the IUD saying in most cases you will have little to no period . I do not have OHIP yet in Canada as I am a immigrant so it was the cheaper option $500.00 so Picked up the IUD at my drugstore went to the Dr. I was told it would take 15 mins well 45 mins latter and very painful it was in.The dr kept saying you are so tiny its hard to place at one point she had one side in and said she could not get the other side in had to take it back out I was like  are you kidding me. After it was placed I was given no information on care when to come back what to expect ect. All I was told was I would have cramps and spot for a few days. I had cramps for 5 days and bled for 5 days. I was a bit nervous to have sex when we did it hurt in certain positions. Two days ago I woke up to very soar breast my nipples hurt so bad. So I call my Dr and ask WTH and then was told no way it is the IUD as the hormones are localized and I need to come in for a PG test I started to laugh told her my husband had a vasectomy and had a reversal 8 yrs ago has been tested several times and was told the reversal did not work he has zero sperm count .then said to her we have had un-protective sex for 10 yrs you made me take a pg test before you put this in. Why in this day in age do Drs still treat women like this. You are either pg or its in your head. So I have a dr appt Thursday another pg test waist of money why they sit and deny that the IUD is causing this.I am 2 weeks in and not impressed . My back hurts  my boobs are heavy and hurt and cant sleep. So I started looking up online about this glad to know I am not alone.  I dont know what is worse bad periods or feeling pg .

Check out the part about the iud and early stages of menopaus...I'm going through the same thing. Breast are swallon, fatigue, thought I was pregnant numerous times amd all came out negative, hot flashes n cold sweats, gaining weight (I work out and eat same as I ever did) dizzy, run down, depressed, can't think streight half the times cause I'm so tired, stressed more than normal, less patience, lower back pain and numbness to the left leg and tingleing in the toes. I'm going nuts I feel like it. Even at work I wanna just fall over. I went to the dr. Today and they are testing my hormones and thyroid to see what's going on. I wint know for a couple of days but after reading some of the related discussions it hit me! If its early menopaus, I am gonna be very devistaded!! Heart broken. Upset that I will never again be able to have another child. I've had the iud since feb of 2008. Just got a new replacement at the end of september and my body is worse õthan it was with the first one. I have the mirena that has the hormones in it. I've also read today that missing periods are NOT GOOD !!! I would really advise to check out early menopuas with iud and see if this sounds like what you all are going through? ! You are not alone.

I have had the Mirena IUD for 1 year as of 12/10/13 and had 2 weeks bleeding, 2 weeks of freedeom followed by 6 weeks of bleeding. Dr. said it was just body adjusting to hormones and to give it some time. No bleeding until Aug., Sept., Oct., Nov., (consisted of 2-4 days of light-med flow). Now in December expecting the same thing but had a yearly exam on 12/23 and doc cannot find strings (no surprise I could never either) so scheduled transvaginal u/s on 12/30. Before leaving to go to u/s appt. I had one bright red spot of blood when I wiped followed by a light pinkish tinged thinking I was starting my period. U/S tech said everything in place and I noticed there was some pinkish looking d/c on wand when removed. After this there was nothing more so I thought no more about it but the following week had major pregnancy symptoms and finally called the doctor on 1/7 and they had me take a home pregnancy test that came back faintly positive. Called doctors office and they scheduled me an appointment in a couple of weeks but today I am starting to bleed again and more than likely am having a miscarriage. I scheduled appt. to have this Mirena IUD removed immediately and going back to natural family planning. I just thought that this would be a better alternative while attending nursing school and boy was I wrong. Good luck ladies!!

Did you have any negative home pregnancy test by any chance? I just keep feeling so pregnant and I had mirena before I had my son but I even feel movement sometimes and I've already take 3 test and they all were negative. Sorry to bother you and I wish you luck.

I was wondering what results you got?? I am 45 and on my 3rd Mirena...the first was put in at 6wk checkup after my daughters birth who is now 10. I had no problems or periods with my previous mirenas. Nor have I had any pregnancy scare or symptoms with my first 2 mirenas. I had this one put in around July 2013 and haven't had any issues with it until the last 1-2 months. Ive had nausea and all day sickness for the last 4 and a half weeks....breast soreness tenderness...frequent headaches...heartburn...back ache....leg and foot cramps...bloated tummy and for the last week I've had flutters and actual felt like kicking. I've got 2 kids my son is 21 and daughter is 10 so I know the symptoms well....I've taken home test that came back negative and because of my age and high risk pregnancy with my daughter I made dr appt with local dr to find out soon enough to be able to take proper precautions. They did urine and blood test that came back negative and she also checked to make sure it was still in place. This was 2 weeks ago and since have continued with vomiting 4-5 days a week, smells making me nauseaous daily and the feeling movement starting this past week. I was wondering what results you got so I know if I should see my obgyn for ultrasound or believe all my negatives and chalk it up to side effects from possible bad Mirena since first 2 were not this way. Any answers or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi
I'm 28 years old and this is my second Iud. The first iud I had no complications so I decided to put another one in 2010. My Iud will expire in 03/15. Recently I been experiencing tender breast, vomiting with almost every meal and very tired. Tired to the point that I fall asleep at work, not to mention my weight has been crazy. I have taken a a home pregnancy test and it came back negative. I feel tightness around my stomach with minor flutters. I recently had my anual and my strings were no where to be found so an ultrasound was ordered for me. Turns out I'm almost 16 weeks pregnant.

Hello everyone,
   Well I had my Mirena IUD put in in June of 2011 and will be four years. But the past couple of weeks almost a month now. I have been having some pre pregnancy I haven't any bleeding or a periods. I did have a scare that I was pregnant last year. Where I took a PG test at home and came out positive. Then I then in turned and took another one again to be sure. It came back negative. So I brushed it off as o.k. then I may be just either going to finally have my period or at least stop. My periods are so rear that I only get a period once a year for an hour. That is normal for me and don't really think much. But this time around it is different and have been feeling just nausea, breast tender and little bigger, and a little pinching on the right side. Just then last week I spotted for an two days which was odd. And not to sound gross but there was a thick discharge and little slimy like. Seems like my body was preparing itself. as when I had my both of my boys. I honestly do not get discharge at all. Sometimes I hear that word I am a little clueless. I really has me worried is that after reading a lot of post of some similar issuses. I am affaired that I could be preganat again. I got the IUD so I would not have another child. Me and my fiance are content with are two son's. I will still love the new child regardless if there is one. Just worried and my Dr. office said it was normal. This does not feel normal as the others. I already took four test and three were positive. So is it the IUD sending false poisitves or indeed am pregnant.

I am having the same symptoms and I mean exactly the same. I do have state insurance but I am single and out of the relationship with the father if pregnant is the case. I have been to my regular MD, my OBGYN, and to the ER (which does not count I did not stay). They keep giving me pregnancy tests that all come out negative.  My symptoms started in June 2015 and I am still having them - they are actually getting worse!  My belly is swollen, I feel like I have a second trimester baby inside -  movement wise that is. If this is not a baby then what is it? So I completely understand what you are going through. These are also the same symptoms had had with my only son which is now 17 and getting ready to graduate high school. I do wish someone had some answers for us it would be nice to know if I was pregnant before I go into labor!

I am going through some very similar things. (I'm new to these sites so don't mind me not knowing what certain things mean, I know hpt means home pregnancy test)

So here's what I have going on with me. I am 23 years old. I have a 4 year old daughter and a 17 month old son. I have had The paragard in for over a year. The last real period I had was in november. In December I had what I assumed was my period but it only lasted 4 days and was very light. Well 2 weeks after that I was experiencing some spotting it was a light pinkish Brown but yet not strong enough to use a tampon, just faintly there when I wiped. That lasted for about 5-6 days and I have not had any sign of my period or spotting since. Now for the past almost 3 weeks I have been getting real nauseas (but mostly when I'm hungry) my appetite has increased quite a bit (im constantly eating), I look and feel bloated (can't lay on my stomach or apply and pressure at all) my boobs are pretty sore. I have been experiancing a few cravings and my sense of smell feels like it is on over drive. I also have been breaking out bad on my face and chest (I look like a teenager that just hot puberty)

Like I said above I have 2 children and in my heart and mind I truly feel like I am pregnant. I just took a hpt  (clearblue) and it came out negative. Could it be to soon? Or could it be that due to the paragard it can't pick up any hcg levels? And if I am not pregnant what could possibly be going on?

My boyfriend and some family and friends think I am pregnant just by looking at me.

I have an appointment Monday with my obgyn and I am going to make them give me a pregnancy test by blood draw.

I was just seeing if any other ladies have had or are go if through anything similar.
