Can mirena (levonorgestrel) cause a false negative on a home pregnancy test?

No. No, Mirena (levonorgestrel) does not release or inhibit the homone HCG which is what pregnancy tests measure. If it is positive, you are pregnant and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) needs to be removed. If it is negative but you think you maybe pregnant, wait a few day and recheck. Obviously you can't wait for a period - those are usually supressed with mirena (levonorgestrel).

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...

I've taken 2 home pregnancy test both show negative. I've had mirena (levonorgestrel) almost 3 years and am a month late. What could be happening?

Can you. Feel your string? If so your IUD should be in place and you are 99+ percent protected. It is very common for women with the mirena (levonorgestrel) to stop or significantly diminish their flow. My thought is that is what is happening. . Read more...

Most unlikely. It would be extremely unlikely that you are pregnant. This sounds more like a normal side effect of the Mirena (levonorgestrel). I would be reassured that you are not pregnant. Read more...
