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).

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

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

Very little chance: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) 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 (levonorgestrel)... Some sources say a 1% chance during the 5 year period of time. ...Read more

I'am a very fertile mother of 5, my mirena (levonorgestrel) expires in a month, what's my % risk of getting pregnant?

High: I can't give you a number but if you are very fertile, when the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed you can expect to return to your normal fertility. If you are not ready to get pregnant, you should be making an appointment to see your doctor for another Mirena (levonorgestrel) or some other method of contraception. ...Read more

<1%: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) has Progesterone in it which for many women makes them stop having a cycle temporarily. Once you have the Mirena (levonorgestrel) out, your periods should resume. About 2 in 100 women get pregnant with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) 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

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

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

Mirena (levonorgestrel): 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
