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

I only had the mirena (levonorgestrel) 9 days and now I've skipped 2 periods in a row and I'm not pregnant. Could mirena (levonorgestrel) be responsible even though it was only 9 days?

I only had the mirena (levonorgestrel) 9 days and now I've skipped 2 periods in a row and I'm not pregnant. Could mirena (levonorgestrel) be responsible even though it was only 9 days?

Skipped periods: Yes, Mirena (levonorgestrel) can cause skipped or irregular periods, and spotting. However, if you had it inserted 9 days ago, then that wouldn't have been sufficient time to have had 2 full normal cycles and periods. Most cycles are about 28 days. ...Read more
