    Default Pregnant with the mirena still in.

    Hello, I just found out on Tuesday that I am pregnant and had an ultrasound on Wednesday to confirm a healthy 15 and a half week baby but also my mirena still inside. The doctor said they will not take it out now and I will have to have it in for the duration of the pregnancy. I've got to go see a ob on Tuesday to talk about the risks and everything. Has anyone had a healthy pregnancy and birth and most importantly baby with the mirena still inside? I have had 3 very straight forward births at a birth centre and really don't want to give birth anywhere else I'm also scared as all hell about the thought of having to have a c section.

    I personally have not experienced that, but do have a friend that fell pregnant on the mirena. She was going to her dr to get it removed as she was feeling discomfort with it in, when she was informed she was 6 weeks pregnant. They went ahead and removed the mirena and she (and the dr) was originally convinced she would lose the baby, but she now has a healthy 2.5 yr old.

    I think if she was further along they likely would not have touched it as it would have been too risky.

    Sorry, I couldn't be off much help. It must be very worrying for you. hopefully the ob has some comforting words when you see him

    Congrats on your baby

    Thank you it was a massive shock as I have had very little symptoms and wasn't until I noticeably started to get a stomach I thought I better get it checked out.
