Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Avg cycle don't know when ovulation happened but if had sex on day 9 of my cycle, what are the chances of pregnancy? Had mirena (levonorgestrel) removed a month prior.

It is possible: If you are not currently on birth control and you have unprotected intercourse, you can get pregnant. The average length of cycle is 28 days, making days 9-14 the most fertile. Your doctor can help determine your pattern, taking into account your past cycle pattern , including when you were using the iud. The closer you have sex to the time you ovulate, the greater the chance of becoming pregnant. ...Read more

Is it possible to have non ectopic pregnancy on Mirena (levonorgestrel) I.U.D.? And would it cause a negative pregnancy test?

Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD/Ectopics: An intrauterine pregnancy is almost impossible to implant if the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD is not expired.

It is past time for my mirena (levonorgestrel) to be removed and I have been having all the pregnancy symptoms. Can mirena (levonorgestrel) cause false negative for home pregnancy test?

It is past time for my mirena (levonorgestrel) to be removed and I have been having all the pregnancy symptoms. Can mirena (levonorgestrel) cause false negative for home pregnancy test?

No, unlikely: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early, such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

Period is 28 days late, neg test with no symptoms of pregnancy. Have had mirena IUD for 1.5 yr. Usually consistent periods. When should I call my doc?

Period is 28 days late, neg test with no symptoms of pregnancy. Have had mirena IUD for 1.5 yr. Usually consistent periods. When should I call my doc?

No cause for alarm: Since your Mirena IUD is one of the most effective contraceptive methods and its hormones can decrease or eliminate your "vaginal bleeding" for months, the absence of "menstrual periods" is usually no cause for alarm. Your risks of pregnancy are very small and the possibility of a medical problem is remote; your "neg pregnancy test" is and may remain the only reassurance you need. ...Read more

Is there an increased risk of stroke in subsequent pregnancies or with Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUS use if I developed migraine w aura at 3 weeks post partum?

Mirena (levonorgestrel) and Migraines: As with all medications, there is always risk and caution should be observed with use of any form of birth control. This medication is a synthetic progestin and is accepted as safer than any estrogen containing contraceptive in individuals with migraine with aura; such use of an estrogen containing contraceptive is contraindicated due to high risk of stroke and thromboembolism. ...Read more

If a pregnancy occurs while on mirena (levonorgestrel) will your doctor terminate the pregnancy if the fertilized egg isn't attached ?

If a pregnancy occurs while on mirena (levonorgestrel) will your doctor terminate the pregnancy if the fertilized egg isn't attached   ?

Your choice.: If a pregnancy is this early, it would be difficult to diagnose. At that stage of development, a pregnancy test & ultrasound might be negative and a physical exam normal. If, however, pregnancy has advanced sufficiently to be diagnosed, your doctor can terminate it. Or you could have the Mirena (levonorgestrel) removed and keep the pregnancy. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) isn't harmful to a normal pregnancy in any case. ...Read more

I'm getting pregnancy symptoms with the mirena, (levonorgestrel) I know I'm not pregnant as test came out negative, is this normal? Need to put mind at ease..

Normal: Mirena (levonorgestrel) has progesterone as its active ingredient. Most of it acts locally but a small amount is absorbed. In sensitive women, this can cause pregnancy-like symptoms. Progesterone was named because levels rise during pregnancy and this helps support the pregnancy. Progesterone is one reason pregnant women feel the way they do. Best wishes! ...Read more

I have been feeling some symptoms of pregnancy but I am on the mirena, (levonorgestrel) could it be possible that i can be pregnant?

Always possible: No birth control is 100%; if you had sexual contact at the appropriate time, there is always a possibility that you are pregnant. That being said, Mirena (levonorgestrel) is very effective usually, so the likelihood is very little for pregnancy; if you remain concerned, take a home pregnancy test at the appropriate time. ...Read more

What would be the signs of pregnancy while having the IUD mirena (levonorgestrel)?

However, if pregnancy does occur, signs and symptoms will be similar to those that you would get normally.
