Has anyone ever got pg while using the Mirena IUD?

I am probably just being paranoid, but I can't shake this feeling
It's really hard too since I have only had 2 periods since getting my IUD almost a year ago.......Just wondering if it has happened to anyone?

Well I only got pregnant b/c mine expelled during a super heavy AF and I wasn't checking it a lot. The fact that you don't get AF while you have it helps b/c I think that means you're not ovulating. I didn't have AF with my 1st or this one I have now. I have spotted twice but have been considering NFP instead of the IUD, still trying to convince dh. LOL

If you're concerned just POAS! I have been a little paranoid a couple times and always get a BFN.

My friend just got pregnant while using the Mirena, but that is becuae it had slipped a little bit and was not properly positioned.

I have heard of a lot of women getting preg on the IUD. That is one of the reasons I chose the pill. That didn't work out so well for me either.

. His name is Levi. Only everyone in my family thought I pulled it out myself. I had never felt the string nor could I ever. I'm a big girl and NOT a contortionist. So that's probably why I didn't know it was gone.

I have super heavy AF. Did your doctor tell you you might experience lighter AF with Mirenia? I am considering getting one just for that purpose even though I have had my tubes tied.

I was always worried that I was, escpecially because my AF was so irregular. I'd get it fine for a few months, then nothing for a few months, then a week, skip a week, another week lol.
