Noticed how new your post was and feel in the same position of not knowing if i am pregnant and worried. Had my mirena 18 months. Took a couple of months to settle, but no great problems at all. Had a monthly each month on time 24 to 28 days cycle... Not as heavy as pre iud as mine were very, very heavy before, but a definite and proper period.
However, I am now 10 days late past 28 days. I hadn't been charting my days except I would just mark it off when I started to bleed. I had One tiny spot of blood on the 28 day mark (like i did when i had my girls) .What got me to think is over the last 7 days I just feel like I am pregnant (I have two children plus one miscarriage). My boobs hurt, my stomach has that bloated stretching feeling with hip pain and back ache, just totally worn out and am feeling nausea which is eased by eating. And I am peeing all the time.
I.did a cheap hcg pregnancy test yesterday afternoon and it was negative. I had been drinking lots of water so am going to repeat tomorrow morning and whatever the result I am going to my doctor tomorrow if I can. I have read loads about false negatives, cysts, miscarriages, phantom pregnancy symptoms on the mirena, ectopics.... lots of nasty things... along with some very happy stories. It has be something... Pregnancy or otherwise. Either way.... Very huge worry and feel very lonely at the moment as not something you can chat about at the school gates or in detail a husband who doesn't want us to have another child.. I expect you were feeling the same... Just not knowing View Thread
