Pregnant with mirena Mrs. Johnson! Due November 1; 2 kids; Virginia 11 posts
28th Feb '12

Hi Ladies!
I'm pretty new to BG, I used to have an account forever ago but never used it. I have had mirena since feb 08, over this last weekend my period was 3 days late (I have a pretty regular 26 day cycle) so I took a home pregnancy test...to my shock it came back positive! This was on a Sunday night and I figured I would just wait until Monday morning and make an appt with my OB/GYN. When I called they couldn't squeeze me in and sent me straight to the ER for a blood test and ultrasound. After sitting there for 6 hours we figured out I'm about 4 weeks pregant and my mirena is still in place! It hasn't migrated, fallen out..it's just hanging out there!! The good news is that it is not an ectopic pregnancy..implanted right in my uterus. LOL



Has anyone else gone though this? The ER dr left it in place and I'm going to see my regular DR on Thursday so she can decide if we should take it out and what will be the safest route to go...I think I'm still in shock!



Any input would be great =]

My cousin got pregnant on mirena and they didn't remove it until after she delivered her son.

My High Risk Dr told me that if it was in there that it would be ok to leave it in there... if they saw the strings, they could pull it out, but that it could cause miscarriage.... the sooner you take it out though the better because the baby wont have had a chance to grow around it.

The ER doctor couldn't see the strings..but I also had them trimmed maybe a year ago BC my hubby could feel them.



I'm still super nervous to see what my OB says Thurs...but It's ecouraging to hear that pregnancys can turn out OK if mirena decides to hangout in there for the next 8 months! LOL

Hi there, I'm currently 24w 4d prego with Mirena. It's jarred itself in the uterine wall. I got it and apparently when I did, the prego test they give to make sure you aren't pregnant showed a false negative. I went back for the 1 month check up and it was missing. I was super sick so they tested me again, and to my surprise POSITIVE. I was 4w prego when I got the IUD placed and almost 9w when I realized I was pregnant. This baby is supposed to be here, since placing the IUD should have terminated the pregnancy. Good luck to you! My baby is doing great! I'm almost done. YAY! Here's my peanut. :D
