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

What r the real chances of getting pregnant w/5 yr mirena in place and 0period since it was placed 1.5 yrs ago? I don't believe online horror stories.

What r the real chances of getting pregnant w/5 yr mirena in place and 0period since it was placed 1.5 yrs ago? I don't believe online horror stories.

<1%: The Mirena has Progesterone in it which for many women makes them stop having a cycle temporarily. Once you have the Mirena out, your periods should resume. About 2 in 100 women get pregnant with the Mirena in place but it can happen. If you feel like you are pregnant in other ways (fatigue, nausea, breast tenderness), see your doctor right away. ...Read more

No: The Mirena iud is just as effective during the last few months as any other time. You obviously need to be considering your future plans for ongoing contraception. ...Read more

What are the chances of getting pregnant a month after my mirena expired?

What are the chances of getting pregnant a month after my mirena expired?

Very little chance: The Mirena IUD works all the way to the 5 year point. It should work the same when a woman is 1 month before the expiration date, or 1 month after that date. It doesn't suddenly stop working, but the amount of hormone released decreases after the 5 year point. There is a very small chance of pregnancy if a woman has Mirena... Some sources say a 1% chance during the 5 year period of time. ...Read more

Is there a higher risk of getting pregnant with twins once the mirena is removed?

Is there a higher risk of getting pregnant with twins once the mirena is removed?

Mirena: No there is no increased risk of having twins once an iud is removed. Pregnancy rates are effected by age. As a woman gets older she has a harder time getting pregnant and also very importantly, a harder time not miscarrying (keeping) the pregnancy. Both of these factors are due to the age of the egg. ...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
