Wow, I have seen serveral issues with the Mirena IUD...I had my IUD put in Feb 09 less than a year ago. I like the IUD except I have only had 2 periods since I got it and I am always scared about being pregnant. I am more scared now then I ever have been because my breast have hurting for the last three weeks, I have gained weight, I have been eating more, I'm tired and grumpy, my body just doesn't feel normal. I took two pregnancy tests and they both came out negative. I researched online how you can tell if you pregnant if you have an IUD and it advised me to see my doctor and to get a blood test. I already have a 4 year old and am not ready to have another baby. I'm also scared that if I am pregnant that there could be birth defects. I guess I will find out Friday and let you know.
