Can i get pregnant while taking an antibiotic and have the mirana birth control?

Depends: If the Mirena (levonorgestrel) device is in place and not expelled the risk of pregnancy while on antibiotic is very low.Always check after menstrual period to make certain that the threads still protrude from the cervix/do not to pull on the threads as doing so may displace the intrauterine system. Report any prolonged bleeding/ fever/chills, abdominal pain/cramps to doctor.Practice safe sex use condoms.Take care. ...Read more

Possible Miscarriage: It increases the chances of a miscarriage, so the sooner it can be easily removed the better. If the string is not reachable and it can not be easily removed, do nothing. Although you may miscarry, you also may complete a normal healthy pregnancy. ...Read more

I had my mirena (levonorgestrel) removed today 3/13/2015 [5years] how long can it take to get pregnant ? not on any birth control.

I been on birth control (IUDs) mirena (levonorgestrel) for 10 yrs I been trying to get pregnant for over a year why hasn't it happened? Could the IUD be the reason

I been on birth control (IUDs) mirena (levonorgestrel) for 10 yrs I been trying to get pregnant for over a year why hasn't it happened? Could the IUD be the reason

Long changes: With 10 years of near constant progesterone presence in your uterus with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD in place, I have to think that it's going to take your body awhile to readjust to get back to "normal" levels of it's own hormones and cycles. Patience is difficult to have when you're trying to conceive but give your body some more time and keep trying.Consider using ovulation kits to know exactly when to try. ...Read more

Do antibiotics affect birth control, specifically IUDs? I'm on Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and have a Mirena IUD.

Do antibiotics affect birth control, specifically IUDs? I'm on Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and have a Mirena IUD.

Not to worry: All IUDs prevent pregnancy, and antibiotics don't interfere with them. Mirena (levonorgestrel) combines the usual action of an IUD with the hormonal effects of the progesterone-type drug included with it. A few antibiotics can affect the hormone's effectiveness, but most won't, including ciprofloxacin. ...Read more

My 5 year mark is up for my mirena (levonorgestrel) birth control i had spotting for a day is that normal or could it be a sign of pregnancy?

Could be either: If your mirena (levonorgestrel) has run out it means you are back on autopilot with your own cycles. This means bleeding, but it also means increased possibility for concepiton. Talk to your provider. ...Read more
