Best wishes! ...Read more

Pregnancy with IUD: Sounds like you both are not on the same page. I recommend that you see a marriage counselor to resolve this because no matter what happens one of you will resent the other (more). Pregnancy can happen after 5 years but sometimes the presence of the IUD, no matter how old, can prevent pregnancy. If she were to conceive, IUD removal can cause a miscarriage. ...Read more

If : If your Mirena (levonorgestrel) was removed mid-cycle, then there is a definite possibility that you could have gotten pregnant as soon as the next week. Home pregnancy tests are 97% accurate about a week or two after the missed period. You may have taken your pregnancy tests a little too early. There is also the possibility that the removal of the Mirena (levonorgestrel) may have thrown off your cycle. Other reasons for a missed period include stress, poor diet, weight loss, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. Take a pregnancy test again. If you are pregnant, congratulations! if you are not and continue to have irregular periods, contact your doctor. ...Read more
