I got the mirena IUD a year ago and i recently took a positive pregnancy test 2 days ago but I have been getting negative tests since am i pregnant?

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%. Anytime you suspect pregnancy take a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. If your test is positive you should see your doctor urgently because of the risk of tubal pregnancy (ectopic pregnancy). ...Read more

It is possible that: you were pregnant and now you are not. A quanitative HCG test should be able to give you an exact answer. You might need to have it done more than once. Remember every method of birth control has a failure rate of some type, but the Mirena is has a very very low failure rate, but it is not zero ...Read more

What are the odds of getting pregnant with the IUD mirena i took a pregnancy test and it came out positive twice. What should I do?

See a GYN MD now: Mirena iud's, like all iud's, prevent pregnancies by preventing implantation of a already fertilized egg into the lining of the uterus.(endometrium) two positive tests indicate that you are pregnant, but the question is where?.. The uterus or elsewhere.(tube) see a md to sort this out as tubal pregnancies are common when iud's fail. ...Read more

Can mirena cause a false negative on a home pregnancy test?

Can mirena cause a false negative on a home pregnancy test?

No: No, Mirena does not release or inhibit the homone HCG which is what pregnancy tests measure. If it is positive, you are pregnant and the Mirena 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. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant on mirena? If so will a pregnancy test show or will your body send out the wrong hormones because of mirena?

Can you get pregnant on mirena? If so will a pregnancy test show or will your body send out the wrong hormones because of mirena?

Not likely: Remember, nothing is 100% effective, but having a well placed Mirena is >98% effective. A positive test will still occur in case of pregnancy & if it does happen, see your doc asap so your pregnancy can be evaluated & the Mirena removed. It's normal to skip menses and a negative pregnancy test can be trusted, so relax. ...Read more

It is past time for my mirena to be removed and I have been having all the pregnancy symptoms. Can mirena cause false negative for home pregnancy test?

It is past time for my mirena to be removed and I have been having all the pregnancy symptoms. Can mirena cause false negative for home pregnancy test?

No, unlikely: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early, such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more
