Hi I have the marina iud and here recently I have been bleeding bright orange and I've been kinda scared. .. What should I do?

Yes: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud is one of the safest and most effective birth control options available. It is over 99% effective. Once inserted it can stay in the uterus up to 5 years. It has few side effects. Up to 50% will have no periods within 2 years which people really like. Occasional bleeding and spotting are typical. ...Read more

I am 22 years old, I got marina IUD for 1 year. I want to remove IUD to get pregnant, how long I have to wait to get pregnant to have healthy baby.?

Not long at all.: Upon iud removal conception is possible and likely at your age; take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and continue with sexual activity as soon as the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud is removed. You should have a 25-30% chance of conception per cycle with regular vaginal intercourse. Best of luck! ...Read more

What's your chances of getting pregnant if you have had the marina IUD for a little over 6 years?

Low, but a big risk: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD should be removed after five years if used for contraception. It probably lasts significantly longer than 5 years, but YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON IT ANY LONGER, and use alternate (backup) birth control until you can have it removed. Pregnancies that occur with the IUD in place can be very problematic. It is NOT worth the risk. ...Read more

I have had my marina IUD for a few months and am having brest tenderness is this normal?

Yes: Any form of hormonal birth control could possibly cause breast tenderness: birth control pills, Depo-Provera shots, vaginal ring, etc. Mirena is a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system, so because it has hormone in it, the breasts may respond with tenderness. The good news is that the longer you have it in, the more you get used to it, and the more likely your breast tenderness will go away. ...Read more

I have marina IUD and my understanding if I get it removed more eggs come out in the first couple months. Can I have twins? I really want twins.

Not increased chance: The chance of twins is not higher after removal of Mirena (levonorgestrel) than before. Some infertility treatments cause an increased risk. But you don't really want to wish twins on yourself. There is a higher risk of preterm delivery and other compications in multiple gestations than in singleton pregnancies. ...Read more

Hello I have an iud marina. .. I do not remember my last period. .. I get this butterfly feeling in my tummy. .. what should I do I have also gone from 192 lbs to 205.8 lbs?

Probably unrelated: Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD is not known to cause weight gain, but Beer and Poutine surely can. You could have any number of hormonal or behavioral causes for your symptoms, but it is most likely not related to your contraceptive method. Some forms of contraception are known to increase appetite, but Mirena (levonorgestrel) is not one of them. ...Read more

I had a IUD marina put in about seven months ago they placed it at the ssme time of doing a dnc on me I have had several infections now I'm not bleefing I fill sick to my stomach a lot in the mornings and have been hetting dizzy for a few weeks what could

Several reasons: A pregnancy related d&c, such as for miscarriage, may lead to infection of the lining of the uterus, a situation that iud placement may create for recurrent mild infection. As always, pregnancy needs to be ruled out, ultrasound may help to rule out displacement, and pregnancy needs to be ruled out. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant with a marina iud? My systems have been tenderness, pain and cramping with frequent urination, also being just drained and tired told my doc of pain with intercourse they said to try new ways of doing it. My boyfriend says he can feel

To: To answer the first part pf your question, yes you can get pregnant with an iud, however the chances of becoming pregnant with a correctly plasced iud are less than 5%.Your doctor should do an iud check to make sure it is in the correct location. Also, it sounds like you may be dealing with an infection, possibly a vaginal bacterial or yeast infection, or even std. On the other hand it may be a urinary tract infection. You should be tested for all of the above.
Your boyfriend is likely feeling the string from the iud or the iud if it is misplaced. If it is the string then maybe it is too long and your doctor should cut it.
I hope your issue is resolved soon. Take care. ...Read more

How does IUD work?

Stops Fertilization: Both the Mirena (levonorgestrel) and paragard iuds keep sperm from fertilizing an egg. Paragard--a copper iud releases copper into the uterus; copper works as a spermicide. Mirena (levonorgestrel) thickens cervical mucous so sperm cannot enter; Mirena (levonorgestrel) may also block ovulation. Both iuds may create uterine inflammation which makes it harder for the egg to implant even if it did get fertilized. ...Read more

It is more difficult if the string isn't visible. Best wishes! ...Read more
