Will it hurt my baby if I got pregnant while on mirena (levonorgestrel)?

Will it hurt my baby if I got pregnant while on mirena (levonorgestrel)?

No: Typically no. There is an increased risk in the first trimester of miscarriage if it stays in so it is generally recommended to remove an IUD if pregnancy occurs. If the strings are not visible then the IUD must stay in. Other than the increased risk of miscarriage, it will not harm the baby.

Pregnant with mirena (levonorgestrel) and I get it removed will it hurt the baby?

Depends: If you get pregnant and their is an iud in place, if the iud strings can be seen, then the current recommendation is that it be removed. It is associated with a small increased risk of miscarriage, but this is not as risky as leaving it in place.

You: You will most likely be able to get pregnant, especially as you have had a normal pregnancy in the past. Your hormones may be fluctuating, which can be caused by stress on the body, or even by weight (too high or too low). After intercourse, lie on your back for 10-15 minutes with your knees bent up to help retain sperm. Be sure you are eating a healthy diet. Discuss any medications you are on with your doctor. If you still do not conceive, then see your gynecologist or a fertility specialist.

Iud: It can can easily take a year to regain fertility after the mirena (levonorgestrel). I would only worry if you are not having periods the way that you used to prior to its insertion.

I've never had a child but hope to one day. I've currently had my mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD for over 3 yrs. Will it affect me from becoming pregnant in the future?

Should be fine: As long as you have not had any STD's while the IUD was in place, having it should not affect your child bearing capabilities. If you have had any STD's, there can be scarring that developed that could create some problems. Talk about your concerns with your OB/GYN.

I used to have a 28-day cycle. I gained a lot of weight and removed Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD. Can I get pregnant? Ttc 2nd child. Cycle now 24-33days.

Yes: The normal interval between cycles are 21-35dys. Your cycle interval may change from time to time and that's ok as long as it is within a normal range. Weight gain can cause hormonal imbalance, hence preventing ovulation. However, it does not mean you cannot get pregnant. Buy ovulation predictor kits to confirm you are ovulating. You must also eat healthy and exercise prior to conceiving.

Small chance: It is important to check for iud strings every so often to be sure iud is in place. Since you don't know if it is and you're concerned about pregnancy check a pregnancy test. If the iud is in place chance of pregnancy is quite low.

At risk: If you are sexually active, you are at risk of getting pregnant. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

I had 2 mirenas totalling 8 years, I took it out 2 days ago. What's the likelihood of pregnancy if I took the ring out and tried immediately?

Depends: It depends upon menstrual cycle. You have to have menstrual cycles and sex at the time of ovulation to get pregnant. If you want to have a child, figure out your cycles and make sure you have sex around the time of ovulation.
