If yours is now past that time frame, and you are using the withdrawal method, there is an increased chance that you could become pregnant as withdrawal is not a good method of contraception. Consider condoms plus spermacide now for better protection and see your ob/gyn if you want to find a different long term method. ...Read more

Use an OPK kit: Did you have a + pregnancy test then negative? Now your cycles are back after the Mirena (levonorgestrel) you can use an ovulation predictor kit (opk) - test between 10 am and noon, starting on day 10 of your cycle. The first morning urine is not accurate. Try the ovuquick brand (available online) if a drugstore test doesn't work for you.

Hello.: Hello. This is a great question. It doesn't sound "normal" but you certainly don't sound crazy either. Your description makes me wonder if your anxiety is some what out of control. It doesn't sound like a comfortable place to be. Have you considered talking to a therapist or possibly seeing a psychiatrist? There many types of treatments (with and without medications) that might really help improve your quality of life. Think about getting some help. Take care. ...Read more

Possible pregnancy: It is possible you could now be pregnant if you did not use an alternative birth control method after having it removed. Also after the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed your periods can take a few months to go back to normal. If a pregnancy test is negative then your period may be effected by the change in hormones. ...Read more

I had my mirena taken out after 4 months mAin issues pain & bleeding. I started the pill same day but have been bleeding since (10 days) is this ok?

IUD removal: If the IUD was pushed into the cervical canal, bleeding and pain would occur. The IUD may also have not prevented a pregnancy, which might account for the persistent bleeding (10 days). If pregnant, it could be in your tube, so get a serum HCG test to make sure about possible pregnancy. If negative, stop the pills and start a new package five days later. Take them the same time each evening. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant, when semen comes out from my butt, the day before the main ovulation day? I took a shower right away when it came out!

Very small: It's impossible to conceive after anal sex, but as you described if semen does come out of the anus and seeps towards the vagina there is a small potential that semen may enter into the reproductive tract. Showering immediately when this occurred limited that possibility greatly. ...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
