I’m just wondering if anyone knows of anyone that this has happened to. I have the [name_f]Mirena[/name_f] IUD, and I’m feeling a little paranoid right now. I haven’t had my period in a while, and my breasts have been very sore recently… But, I should tell you that my cycle has always been VERY irregular, so not having it for a while isn’t that surprising. The first few months after I had the IUD inserted I was spotting basically continuously, so I knew I wasn’t pregnant then, but it stopped after a while and I haven’t had anything since then.
I should also tell you that I [name_m]WAY[/name_m] overthink things sometimes. I used to get all paranoid about being pregnant even before I was having sex! I would have a dream that I was pregnant or something and then worry about it in the back of my mind (even though I KNEW there was no chance). But I am sexually active this time, so I can’t 100% talk myself out of worrying about it.
I think the soreness is what is making me worry the most, because I’ve never really experienced anything like it before and that’s one symptom of pregnancy that I’ve heard a lot of people experience. I also feel like I’ve been putting on weight recently, and this was an explanation that my brain came up with.
Anyway, I know IUDs are supposed to be one of the most effective forms of birth control, I’m just curious if anyone has ever had any surprises with it? I might take a test soon just to ease my mind. Sorry this post is kind of rambling, I’m just a little panicked. Thanks!
