Is it possible to get pregnant while on IUD?

I have the I D Mirena for 6 months now. It was reinserted after my 5 years. I have always had my periods on time every month. This month my period was due around about the 2nd give or take a day or 2. I never got it. A week after it was due I started getting period like cramps, headaches, lower back cramps and some nausea. Today is about 2 weeks late and I had a negative hp test last week. Is it possible that I could be pregnant with the IUD?

Hi dear and thanks for your query.

MIRENA IS A VERY SAFE BIRTH CONTROL METHOD ,98 %.
IF LAST WEEK PREGNANCY TEST AT HOME WAS NEGATIVE ,YOU AREN'T PREGNANT.
DELAY PERIODS OR MISSED PERIODS MAY BE FROM MIRENA .

ALL THE BEST

Hi, I went to a clinic to get my iud removed (I got the mirena put in 5 yrs ago and it was time to remove it), and the doctor was unable to take it out. He was able to get a hold of it, but just couldn t take it out. He sent me to a different clinic and the same thing happened. A week before my appointment I began thinking I might be pregnant because I had noticed I had been gaining weight in my belly for a while, which seemed odd, but then my bloatedness became a little too much. I thought for sure I m pregnant. But a urine test was done at the clinic and it came back negative. I went for a transvaginal ultrasound today to check for the iud, but I am curious to know whether or not an ultrasound tech can see a baby when they are not looking for one...?

Hi, I have had the copper t IUD for 3 1/2 yrs. I have had a period, regularly every month except this past July. (It lasted the almost the whole month)It is now September 26, in late July, early August while having intercourse with my husband he hit my IUD and it hurt bad. 2 weeks after something poked him. About a week ago it poked him again. I am contacting you because I am a week late and feel pregnant. I have had three pregnancies before, but the symptoms could be chalked off as PMS, or the fact that I am stressed and wishful thinking for another. I have taken 4 at home test and 2 were invalid and 2 were negative. I have an appointment with my Dr but not for another 2 weeks, please help.
