Should women who have never been pregnant consider mirena (levonorgestrel)? Is there a risk with placement?

Should women who have never been pregnant consider mirena (levonorgestrel)? Is there a risk with placement?

It: It is definitely more difficult to insert the iud on a women who has never had a vaginal delivery. However it can still be done. Many doctors opt to do it when the patient is on her period. The reason being is that the cervix is open during this time and it is much easier to insert.
Another reason why doctors recommend against it on someone who has not had kids, is due to the fact that it is long term (mirena (levonorgestrel) lasts for 5 years), and often times women decide to have kids sooner and opt to take it out, which is not very cost effective from an economic standpoint.
General risks of iud regardless of parity is bleeding, infection, trauma. Your doctor will be able to go over all your options, the procedure including risks and complications.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Unlikely, but.....: You can get pregnant immediately after removal of an iud, depending where you are in your cycle. That being said, if you are only 4 days post removal, it is too early to check a pregnancy test. Additionally, your periods may be irregular just after removing the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. I recommend you wait a week, then check a urine pregnancy test. Best of luck! ...Read more

I'm curious if I am pregnant or not. My mirena (levonorgestrel) fell out November 27th. I have been getting really sick when I try to eat the past week.

Pregnancy test: With the minera IUD it is difficult to gauge, when you may have had a menstrual period and relative to that when you may have ovulated. You may want to do a home pregnancy test, and if that test is negative, do another test in a week, because it takes about a week after conception for the preg test to become positive. Avoid or have protected intercourse during that week. ...Read more
