Pregnancy with mirena?
lovebnamom posted:
I have the mirena since October 2013. I am a mother of two, 2yr old and 9 month old. Since I started the mirena I bled for three months straight. some days would be extremely heavy others would be light. I also have been extremely tired and weak since I started this thing. seems as if the fatigue has gotten worse as time passes. lately my partner and I have noticed my breast are getting bigger and im easily bruising. I don't feel it when I get hurt but I wake up with bruises that I don't even know where they come from. at least twice a week I have migraines that Tylenol doesn't even take away, I get random dizzy spells and nausea and stomach pains. I will have random numbness in my left side of my body my fingertips on my left side tingle and some days I can barely bend over because of lower back pain. I have had pain during intercourse and my partner states to me that he has felt the merina during intercourse. I don't know if I should see a doctor because it is hard to find one around here because a lot of doctor don't except my insurance. I just would like some advice if I should get this removed or if you think this could be signs of something more life threatening. thank you.

Go see your doctor.
These are not pregnancy symptoms and you could be having either a bad reaction to the hormones or it could be implanted incorrectly. Your partner should not be able to feel it after this long and numbness is a red flag for bigger issues.

I'm pretty sure they can get you in right away.

Good luck!
