Hi dear and thanks for your query.

i UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN BUT CHANCES TO BE PREGNANT WHILE YOU HAVE MIRENA ARE VERY VERY LOW ,ALMOST ZERO.
ALL THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS MAY BE SIDE EFFECT OF MIRENA AND WEIGHT GAIN.
BUT TO BE CALM AND TO EXCLUDE PREGNANCY BETTER GET A PREGNANCY DONE AT HOME.

ALL THE BEST

Hi, I had a baby 3 months and 2 weeks ago. They kept me on petosin because my body was not pushing the blood out properly? I got a Mirena inserted a while back but I am having wide spread abdominal pain with back pain and I have brown discharge every other week sometimes every week then after brown discharge I bleed a lot then it goes away. The abdominal pains are sharp and usually very sudden. I know when I was around 7 weeks pregnant my papsmear came back abnormal and led me to believe I had cervical cancer but ai transferred OBGYNs and the new one said they shouldn t have done the pap while I was pregnant at all.

Hi I am experiencing severe-mild menstrual like cramps on my lower left side but no period. I had the Mirena IUD in for 3 years & after having it removed, I then started using the Nuvaring for about 5 months, & received my period like clockwork the 15th of every month, but haven t had it in place for almost three months now & yet no period & as of a month & a half ago, no pregnancy (only via home pregnancy test), but now I am so worried that like my very first pregnancy that this may be an eptopic pregnancy. Also, I had a pap 5 months ago & it was normal, so my fears of ovarian cancer are kinda at rest. What do you think?

Hi, I have been on the mirena IUD for 3 years now, and the last 2 weeks I have had very tender breasts, my lower abdomen feels bloated, I have had nausea but it seems to only be at night, and recently smells have been making me so nauseated I can hardly keep down my recent meal.. I have also noticed some white vaginal discharge, and have been so tired lately I can hardly pull myself out of bed, and go about my day without wanting to lay down for a nap. I had some spotting about 3 weeks ago and figured it was just a light period, because I am irregular I also have frequent urination, so I thought I was getting a bladder infection but when I looked it up I have no symptoms other then frequent urination, no burning sensation, its not cloudy, no fever.. I m at a loss I took a pregnancy test just to be sure and it came out negative..

HI I have had heavy periods every other week for nearly 4 years. I have had polyps removed last year and still the same. I have been taking Noristherone near enough constantly since a 48 hour constant heavy bleed before christmas. I have had an ultrasound which detected fibroids. The gynae consultant was reluctant to give me a hysterectomy even though I am 51 so had the Mirena coil fitted 14/2/14. still bleeding with the coil fitted and Noristherone. Passing clots intermittently and have bleeds like a tap turning on. I work for the Imaging dept at the NHS and had an ultrasound on the QT because of the stomache pain my work colleague thought the coil had moved, she said to demand a transvaginal scan has I had fluid in the lining of my endemetrius. I have just had another gynae appointment and had the scan to which they confirmed fibroids and pulsing blood!! whatever that meant. The consultant wanted me to have the Novasure but said it was likely not to work because of the fibroids. She was again reluctant to go down the hysterectomy route but I said I was fed up of having a miserable existance wearing black and being afraid to stay in hotels for fear of leakage so she very reluctantly has put me on the waiting list that she said could be 9-12 weeks. I have started the Noristherone again to give myself a break but how long can I take it for and do you think hysterectomy is the best course of action. Sorry I know this is a novel!!!!
