You can check: If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. Mirena (levonorgestrel) is a very effective method and pregnancies are quite rare. A lack of menstrual cycles or light cycles are a normal side effect of Mirena (levonorgestrel)
