    Question Pregnant whilst on the Mirena?

    Hey all.

    Please forgive me if this posted in the incorrect forum section.
    I've had the Mirena IUD inserted in March 2013, and have not had a period since (slight spotting here and there). My (long-term) partner never ejaculates in me without a condom, and will pull out if he is not wearing one. Lately, I've been bleeding a little bit, more spotting than I usually do. It isn't a deep red, and it is noticeable when I wipe after urinating and also in underwear.
    My breasts were sensitive prior to noticing this, and I am was experiencing cramps. I had that "heavy" feeling that usually comes with having a period, and I'm just wondering if I am experiencing implantation bleeding? My period (prior to the IUD) was usually due around this time of the month. I'm just not sure if this is implantation bleeding or just a side effect of the mirena, although I hadn't usually bleed this much.

    I went and saw my GP yesterday regarding my concerns; I thought I could only feel one thread of my mirena so I wanted clarification on this. My GP was going to check for me and perform a pap smear, however he could not see my mirena due to it turning out that I have thrush. I am on treatment at the moment for this, and have to go back next week to see my GP again to check the positioning of my mirena and to have a pap smear. I woke up this morning to see more blood than usual in my underwear; could this be bleeding as a result of the speculum used yesterday?

    My GP advised me so long as I can feel one thread, I'm all good, I'm just really paranoid due to this bleeding ....

    Any advice? Thanks.

    Your symptoms actually sound typical of the Mirena.

    Yeah your symptoms sound exactly like mine were when I had the mirena. I had it removed because of it and the constant feeling of being pregnant.

    My friend has a Mirena and just found out she's pregnant. Looks like it came out with a heavy bleed and she didn't know. So it can happen but I think you're fine if you can feel a thread.
