Mirena IUD pregnancy symptoms
Hi guys!  I had a mirena inserted in march 06, i bleed for 2mths straight and then stopped, and got a normal period a month later.  I am 3weeks over due for my period, im always tired, frequent urination, weight gain (eating heaps)...and feeling sick like i want to vomit.  I have also had problems with my bowels (which is common in my pregnancies).  I have three children already oldest is 3 and the young 8mths.  I have got pregnant on the pill, the implant (in the arm)...and im scared im pregnant again.  I had a home preg test which came up neg, then a week later it came up lightly positive.  Just to make sure i took another one three days later and it came up neg.....what is going on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love Rosalind

I had the merina in since my last child. Who is almost 3 now. Lately i have been tired and napping every day, then my pants are getting more snug, now my stomach feels like i am pregnant. A home test was negative. I usually workout everyday but since i have been tired i rarely workout. I usually have a light period every month, but now i dont. Can it be possible that i am pregnant?

I have had my mirena for a little over 3 months now and the past 3 weeks i have been having weird symptoms. a pinching in my uterus, only every once in a while for a couple seconds and then its gone. been nauseaus a few times, i spotted the entire time since having it inserted up until a few weeks ago then it completely stopped. the past 2 days my breasts have been tender and feel bigger. i have taken 6 hpts and they were all negative. i have an appointment today to have the mirena removed, and they are going to do another pregnancy test. i have done some looking online to see if anyone has had false pregnancy symptoms while on the mirena, and what i have found is that there are more women who have fallen pregnant with the mirena than those whose pregnancy symptoms were a result of the mirena. has anyone else had these false pregnancy symptoms? and if so did they continue getting worse by the day? i felt all the same symptoms before with my daughter, but not until well after i found out i was pregnant

Hi, I read a post you put on a women's health question about pregnancy on Mirena and I was wondering what ever happened. I have all the things you talked about; the mood swings, i almost swear I feel something move sometimes, people look at my stomach and ask how far along I am (i diet and exercise but it grows steadily), I am constantly tired, and the heartburn is uncontrollable. Im going to take a test in a few days but i was taking them the first couple months after getting it in and they always came up negative. Ive had it in since january and last took a test in march.
thanks for reading,
Kenzie

I had the mirena coil put in 2011 after 4th child periods tailed away till I never have a period. I have been feeling a bit strange over the last couple of weeks and decided to check the threads of the coil to find they have gone. I went to the doctors and she also checked couldn't find them either so is now sending me for an ultra sound scan to locate the coil, she also said about a pregnancy test. When I got this fitted I was not aware of all the things that can seemingly go wrong, what a nightmare we trust the medical profession too much ....I certainly want it removed.

I had my mirena put in after I had my daughter in 2009 and am now showing signs of being pregnant. I had pain a couple months ago whenever my boyfriend and I had sex, and it felt like it was in my uterus. Strange, I know, but I honestly thought that maybe we had moved my mirena out of place. I do not throw up and today I couldnt stop it, I have been moody, so tired all of the time and have even felt a flutter like with my daughter. I have not had a single issue with mine, no period, no cramping, and no weight gain other than from being a stay at home mom and full time student. I have an appointment in the morning and intend to talk to the ob/gyn about these hopefully phantom symptoms and if I am, how three tests can come back negative. Even at the emergency room last week they wouldn't test me for it because I have the mirena. To me, if the mirena isnt 100% effective, shouldnt they do a blood test to make sure? Especially if they already drew my blood??

I have had mine in for 4 years..next June is when I'm due to have mine taken out and I feel everything you described. I even have bloating that makes me looks like I have a little baby bump to the point where my family has noticed and even asked if I'm pregnant. I'm very worried, I feel as if maybe somehow the Mirena is forcing a false negative. I have taken home pregnancy tests that all come up negative and when I went to my OB/GYN they did a urine test that had also came up negative. NOt sure what step to take next but I feel exactly how I felt when I was pregnant with my now four year old. Help!
Back pain
Exhaustion
Headaches
Cramping
Bloating
Breast Soreness/Tenderness
Changes in Appetite
Nausea
Vomiting

I had mirena for 5 yrs. Then removed then new one replaced. I was hospitalized for a cyst the size of a golf ball it popped n I collapsed from so much blood loss. I woke to being given a blood transfusion!! Dr said its best I keep it and it was just my bodies way of trying to reject a foriegn object. My string are no where to be found now n I was sent to have an ultrasound to make sure it hadnt moved. Dr said iud was in place n its fine..i trusted her to now having pregnancy symptoms n top in all off my hair is falling oit. I have a 3" patch of missing!! I need answers..

I am so glad I found these posts! I too have had all of the typical pregnancy symptoms. I've only ad my iud for about a year and a half, and have always had cramping and light bleeding after intercourse. Moodiness, cramping, headache, nauseous, and this morning I felt a hard spot lump out in my belly-as if a baby was poking out! Stopped me in my tracks! I know if is highly unlikely to become pregnant wile using the iud, but does anyone know why these symptoms are so strong and happen so often??

Well I have had my iud for a year now and when it was put in I had a period twice and now I don't and I had symptoms at first but I knew I wasn't. but now I am gaining weight in my belly and only there. i'm cramping like I was before and still no period. I have sex with my sons father all the time without protection and I know that it is not 100% effective, but i'm getting sick off the things I did with my son..I'm worried but I don't want it to be negative and i'm just getting fat...but I would kinda like to be pregnant. I love my son and I would love to have another child...what should I do.

I got mine in october2011, so for 2 years now. I spotted at the beginning for 6 months. Now I get my period every 3 months. I honestly think that if you gain weight its your fault and should take better care of what you eat. I have no cramps only on my period which lasts about 3days and is very light. Maybe its just luck if your body accepts it. So good luck girls.

I am on my second IUD.  My first 5 years were fantastic...no issues!  Then I had the second inserted two years ago and now I have an appointment to remove it!!!  I am experiencing all symptoms of pregnancy, negative urine and blood test, and have confirmed no other health conditions with my doctor.  Like I said, my next step is to have it removed and see if the symptoms will stop!!  I have a 7 & 8 year old.  I am very happy with being a Momma of two, but at this point...if I'm going to feel pregnant...I might as well be pregnant!  We are considering having Daddy snipped!!  Good Luck everyone!

I too am 35 with a 3 1/2 year old son.  I have been having signs of a pregnancy too.  I have been getting headaches, I'm always tired with absolutely NO energy, being irritable, weight gain, heartburn, my breast are getting bigger and mood swings.  I am going to make an appointment to see if I am indeed pregnant and if not, then I may need to get the IUD taken out.

I have had mine for 6 years. I had extreme pain the following days after getting it. That first year was bad and I had bad pain spells that would have me in the fetal position. After about two years the pain subsided. Every once in awhile there is pain during intercourse. I hardly have periods and they are irregular and VERY light... I mostly just get the symptoms of a period. You do get pregnancy symptoms once in awhile. I now think I am pregnant due to pregnancy symptoms that are not like the mock ones im use to, these are much stronger than they have ever been. My doctor did tell me a blood test would need to be done to detect pregnancy with an IUC.

Hi, okay so I've had the mirena for 3 years now, and I've had periods every month except for this month, I've been cramping like I'm going to start but I haven't started and I'm a month late. I took 2 pregnancy test and they both came out negative, but I'm having symptoms of being pregnant. Like frequent urination, feeling nausea after I eat. Idk really know what to do... Anyone know what I should do?

I've been on the Mirena for a little over a year now. When I first got it, I didn't have my period for a couple months then I finally got it and it last almost a week. After that I didn't get it for another 3 months. Within those three months I thought I was pregnant, not only because I was late but because I had all the symptoms of fatigue,  frequently urinating, cravings, nausea, very emotional and also I felt little flutters in my uterus. I also took a pregnancy test and it turned out to be negative. But again it's been almost three months since my last period and I'm getting the same symtoms again, only this time I feel really bloated. Took another pregnancy test and still negative. Not sure if this is normal or not and I'm starting to think this is my new cycle and if it is it's very scary because I don't know if I'm really pregnant or not.. anyone else get the same symptoms?

Did anything else ever come of this? I am on my 3rd Mirena. I've always gained a little weight when I get them in at first, but lose it easily. For the last month, I've convinced myself that I am pregnant. I also had a negative HPT. But still have tender breasts, swollen abdomen, extremely tired, and feel unhappy.. I just wonder if its possible to get a negative HPT, and still be pregnant. Did you go to the Dr.?  Are you pregnant? Please let me know. I really don't want to start my deductible over if the negative is definately a negative.  Thanks!

Light period first month, no period since
This last month or so I am tired all of the time and my breasts really hurt
The last 2 weeks I have been peeing more + heartburn
Strings are still where they were

Mood swings are better than while on pill
Not sure what to try next, pill was bad for mood swings/crying

I have had my mirena in place now for 4 years and 8 months. I recently have started to feel those same pregnancy symptoms. I have stomach cramps, spotting headaches and eating a lot more. I took a pregnancy test but it came back negative. The problem with that is that the test itself says that if you have ovarian cysts,  it can lead to a negative result. I don't have insurance and am very worried about ectopic pregnancy. I am wondering if because I am almost at my 5 year mark if it is not giving off as much hormone needed to protect against pregnancy. I normally feel nausea in the morning but it subsides by the afternoon. I already have to children and wouldn't be terribly upset to have another if that was the case but I am really scared with what could be going on. I would not recommend the iud to anyone. I believe that this iud is what caused me to get very painful ovarian cysts. Please anyone with info let me know

Hello my name is Ariel i'm 23 and my husband and I just had our first baby little less then 7 months ago.  I got the IUD 4-6 weeks after having my beautiful daughter Clover-Lynn and have had problems from the beginning.  First there was problems with the string and I had to go back several times to have it shortened and now there is no string for me to even do a check to see if its in right.  I have noticed pregnancy symptoms for about two months now.  I get random periods some time a little painful.  My breast hurt almost everyday, intercourse is some times very uncomfortable just like during my pregnancy. I am very confused and scared, I my self do not want any more children my pregnancy was very rough.  I'm always tired my seance of smell is unbelievable and I'm losing an enormous amount of my hair, these were also all the signs i had when I was pregnant.  I have not taken any tests I have called the doctor twice and they brush it off like I'm nuts.  I feel no lumps or anything in my stomach but that doesnt always tell you everything.. I've also had a eptopic pregnancy before so my odds are even greater.  As I read all these blogs I begin to wonder if maybe all these symptoms we are having is being cause from all the hormones in our bodies. I think the IUD needs more research behind it.

So I got the Mirena around six months ago I think. I got it to alleviate period cramps and it has been great so far. A few weeks ago I was possibly raped. I haven't had sex other than that (and I can't remember all of what happened that night). My boobs are a little tender and I've been feeling nauseous and had a lack of appetite for the last week or two. I've continued to spot just like normal with the mirena in the first few months. Do you think it is possible I might be pregnant? I know the statistics are so low (especially just from one instance), but who knows--I'm 20 and probably pretty fertile otherwise. If you think there is a chance I could be pregnant, should I buy a cheap test at the drug store or go straight to the doctor. I'm in college so I have lots of free (well, paid for by tuition) resources at my disposal. Thanks for your advice.

If you are having symptoms of pregnancy you need to get your self tested right away as ectopic (tub) pregnancys are uncommon they are a higher risk with birth controls such as the marina. More then that the risk of being pregnant on marina according to my recent research is no longer 1% or 1 out of 1000 but instead it is 8-10%. Now that's just according to what I have found. I have had my marina since February of 2013. My periods have been lighter and shorter. How ever then the more recent months I have been having symptoms of pregnancy such as nausea. Feeling tired all the time. Cravings. Feet selling. And a decreased sex drive. Really bad heart burn too.  I have a almost 3 year old and wasn't really planning to have any more kids right now. I asked my doctor about it and all she could say was I don't know if it's normal. And left it at that. Since having the marina I have never been more then 3 days late with my period. Now I'm 7 days late and feeling worse then ever. I am going to the doctors Wednesday and if all is well I'm having this thing taken out. I have recently learned that if I do become pregnant on the iud it may not be able to be removed as in doing so could result in a miscarriage. By leaving it in it could cause a miscarriage anyways and possibly birth defects. I could handel the 1% but the more research I do on this the more I find that pregnancy on the marina is more common then I originally thought. I'm worried that if I am pregnant that the iud could harm the baby. I'm playing safe and having it removed. I feel that there are things that weren't disclosed to me before have the iud implanted. I did research but I guess not enough. everything I have found has me. Very worried about my health.
