I had mirena for almost the full 5 years. It is now april and i was due to get it out in june. I never had many issues besides the first few months and i always recommended it to other people. But 2 days ago i went to the hospital with severe pelvic and abdominal pain. I had an ectopic pregnancy and the tube had ruptured. I went into emergency surgery and luckily the doctor was able to save my tube. I will never recommend this birth control to anyone again!
Mirena has caused me much pain and suffering. On Mother’s Day of this year I found out I was pregnant when going to the ER because of my severe pelvic pain. I was shocked because I had Mirena and did not think I could get pregnant, but was okay with it. Then after an ultrasound they discovered it was in my Fallopian tube and the tube had ruptured. I had emergency surgery to stop the bleeding and had the pregnancy and left tube removed. This has been awful emotionally and finically.
I have had mirena for 4 1/2 years now after the birth of my 3 rd child in 2009. I took a pregnancy test sat 10/19 & 10/20. Both came out positive for being pregnant. I am calling the dr in the morning to see if maybe I could be the one chance if it not being etopic. My fingers are crossed. I haven’t had any signs yet although I’m still pretty early since the line were faint but diff. Preg. I try to check myself every year by taking 3-4 throughout the yr since I haven’t had a period in years. Just very light every few months when I get stressed out. Trying to do as much research as possible to calm my nerves.
After I had a baby a few years ago I
decided to go on the Mirena IUD.
Recently I got this sharp and burning
my pelvic area. The pain was mild a few
months ago but now it’s a little
more painful. It comes and goes. I did
pregnancy test about a week ago (since I
was panicking) and it was
negative The test was from the Dollar
Tree though, but I have used those
cheap kind before and they
always work. I’m not sure what to do. If
the pain gets severe enough I
will go to the ER. But I’m hesitating right
now since I don’t have any
medical insurance. It’s just that reading
about an Etopic pregnancy I am
getting more nervous and wanted to
know the percentage of women who got
this because of the Mirena IUD?
That sounds extremely scary and dangerous…. I do use Mirena but didn’t even know this could happen. I’ve been having a lot of cramping though which is how I came across your site in the first place, after doing some research. I’m hoping it’s nothing serious… but thinking I need to see my doctor.
