Not likely: Iud's are one of the most effective forms of birth control. Irregular or absent periods are an expected side effect. Failure rates are 1%.

Can mirena (levonorgestrel) cause a false negative on a home pregnancy test?

No: No, Mirena (levonorgestrel) does not release or inhibit the homone HCG which is what pregnancy tests measure. If it is positive, you are pregnant and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) needs to be removed. If it is negative but you think you maybe pregnant, wait a few day and recheck. Obviously you can't wait for a period - those are usually supressed with mirena (levonorgestrel). ...Read more

The uterus or elsewhere.(tube) see a md to sort this out as tubal pregnancies are common when iud's fail. ...Read more
