Is it ok to have unprotected sex with my husband and my husband ejaculated without a condom . Can I get pregnant?
Yes, so long as you are both disease free and monogamous! My husband and I do not use condoms and and he does not withdraw, and we've been using Mirena since July 2007. This is what Mirena is for. If there is a thought of infidelity from either of you however, do keep in mind Mirena is for pregnancy prevention ONLY... it doesn't do anything to protect against STDs. Hope this helps!:)
There is ALWAYS a chance of pregnancy with any form of birth control. It may be small, but it is always there.
Therefore, if you engage in unprotected sex (by definition) you are at risk for pregnancy.
Now, if your question is whether mirena is effective enough to use alone, with no other form of birth control... I would direct you to your local office of Planned Parenthood, who maintain all sorts of information, facts, figures and rates of conception with all forms of birth control. They would be able to answer your question and subsequent questions on effectiveness and correct application, better than I.
The fact is, Mirena is just as effective as tubal ligation is at preventing pregnancy. Adding a condom is not going to make a difference at that. However, it is ineffective in prevention of any and all STD's, which is why it is only recommended for mutually monogamous couples. If you have NO worries about infidelity and you are both disease free, there is absolutely no reason to use a condom. The failure rate for Mirena used for pregnancy prevention is LESS than 1 in 100. You cannot use it wrong, it is always there, you cannot forget to use it, making it one of the, if not THE, most effective form of birth control you can use.
My fiancee uses Mirena and I don't use condoms. She's had it in for about a year this coming spring and we have a very active sex life. Her ob/gyn said Mirena is the most effective form of BC this side of tubal ligation and we haven't had any pregnancy scares. Actually, this has made sex better for us since we can enjoy ourselves without worrying about pregnancy. So, you should be fine.
