    Can I get pregnant on an expired Mirena IUD
    crazy_hormones posted:
    I am 29, and have never been pregnant. I have been using Depo since I was 17, until I switched to an IUD. My Mirena IUD has been in longer than 5 years. It expired about 5 months go. Lately I have noticed that my breasts are becoming fuller and more sensitive, I have been EXTREMELY hormonal, and have been crying for no reason. I haven't had a normal period since I was 17, mostly I haven't had any, just some spotting here and there. I have been freaking out, because I think I might be pregnant, so I took a test, and it came out negative. But my question still stands, is it possible to get pregnant with an expired Mirena IUD still in place?
