I took pregnancy tests because I missed my period but I have Mirena and have had it for 4 years... so I assumed it was in place. I went to the doctor and I am pregnant (less than 4 weeks) and in the ultra sound you could see my Mirena lodged somewhere outside my cervix... long story short the doctor was able to successfully remove the IUD in one piece. I'm nervous now because he said the pregnancy could be ectopic or normal in the uterus, but still high risk. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced a pregnancy with IUD?
I’m so sorry to hear this happened to you. I pray everything is okay with your baby. I don’t know anyone else that has been pregnant while their IUD was in place.
My partner's mother became pregnant on the IUD, years ago. The pregnancy was successful.
