My wife dr installed mirena to prevent uterine cancer. We do not believe in abortion but are ok with birth control. Does mirena cause abortions?
Probably: One mechanism of action for the Mirena (and there are several) is the thinning of the endometrium. That makes the lining of the uterus less receptive to implantation of a fertilized egg. When a conception does occur, most of the time that fertilized egg will not implant and the pregnancy will not be established - this results in the Mirena being an abortifacient at least part of the time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a surgical abortion about 2 weeks ago and had mirena placed. I discovered what may be an ovarian cyst. Another has formed. What caused this?
IUD-Mirena-inserted May 15/14 following abortion.Period is normally on time since IUD was done.Period was due Nov 3/14-3 days ago-.Pregnancy possible?
Possible not likely : There is no contraceptive method that doesn't have failures. However, the Mirena IUD contains a progestin which makes periods much shorter and lighter almost to the point of being non-existent. It is much more likely that that is what is going on but you can always check a pregnancy test to be sure. Hope this helps. ...Read more

NOT normal: Plase call you gyn, as u need an exam, cultures and ultrasound to me sure the iud is in the right place ad nothing else is going on, the iud may need to come out even if it is the right place. ...Read more
Not recommended: No, because it has no other chemicals like copper, hormones, etc, it will not really work to prevent fertilization. More worrisome, if fertilization and implantation occurs, the risk of an ectopic pregnancy is high. And, if a normal uterine pregnancy occurs, the iud will need to be removed and it is highly likely to cause an abortion. ...Read more
I had the Mirena IUD that went missing. My Obgyn said that it probably explelled out of my body. What test could I take to confirm this?
You many not know: Mirena IUD's work by preventing a fertilized egg from implanting in the lining of the uterus(endometrium) which is a form of very early abortion. The most common failure is a pregnancy in the Fallopian tube (ectopic) and you may not know that either without pain as a symptom. ...Read more
Mirena removed in Sept, period Oct 27. Sex Nov 5th and condom broke. Didn't think about ovulation until breast sore on Sat and took plan B. Too late?
Yes: The Mirena IUD is designed to give effective birth control for 5 years and then needs to be replaced. If you are late by a few days to a few weeks you should be covered but don't push it if pregnancy is unwanted. To be absolutely safe use condoms for protection after the expiration date. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
