Parenting after a Loss

Pregnant with Mirena?

Long time no post! I thought I would throw this question out there because I am pretty confused. 
After DS was born, I got Mirena inserted.  I have been incredibly nauseous so I thought "hey I will just try a cheapie test."  It immediately came back positive. I was really confused by that, (and did 4 more cheapie tests- all positive) so I went to Target and got 2 FRERs. I took the FRER and BFN. 
I will take the second one in the morning, but what the hell?  Anyone go through this? Also has anybody gotten pregnant with the Mirena still in? That scares me a lot (not the baby, the having the Mirena in there and needing it removed). I know false positives are incredibly rare, but this is so complicated by the fact that I haven't had AF since before DS was born almost 2 years ago, and I am not sure what to make of the 2 different results. Ugh.

Re: Pregnant with Mirena?

  • Hmm personally I would trust a FRER over a cheapie, but maybe test with a FRER and FMU tomorrow and see what it says. If it is negative I would go with you not being pg. GL!

    Thanks! It's such a toss up. I will be testing tomorrow morning for sure.

  • I have always had early positives with FRERs, so I agree, but given the risks associated with becoming pregnant with an IUD in place, I would also call your OB tomorrow and ask for a blood test, so you can get a def. answer.

    I would test in the morning with a FRER but i would call the doc and get a blood test just in case. Being pregnant with the mirena is rare but if it occurs the doc needs to know asap because 1 it would need to be removed and 2 an ectopic pregnancy needs to be ruled out as the chances are higher with the mirena.

  • I don't have any experience regarding the Mirena but when I got my positive test with DD, I had positives with the cheapies before the FRER (I know, weird).  By the next day I had a very faint line on the FRER so hopefully if you take another in a day or two you can confirm, but as PP's said, you should probably call your doc regardless.

  • Have no experience with this, but echo PP's. I'd call my OBGYN straightaway for a blood test just to be on the safe side. GL!

  • I have a dear friend who got pg on the mirena, and just had her little boy last month. Aside from the initial shock and quick removal, her pregnancy was easy peasey.
    S/N I didn't have a period when I had my Mirena, but was always super nauseated around the time that it "should" have come.
    Good luck to you!

  • Definitely call your OB tomorrow and let them know. A quick blood test is worth it.
