Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.
Can you please tell me which iud are you having?
Do you have nausea? Fatigue? Increased frequency of urination?
So you never missed a period before on mirena iud?
This iud is usually very very effective at preventing pregnancy but we commonly see women missing periods with it.
Can you feel the strings of iud?
Yeah it is. What's the expected date of your periods?
If the iud is still inside and not displaced then it's very very unlikely that you could be pregnant. But since you can't feel the threads, it would be prudent to take a home pregnancy test 7 days after a missed period. If it's negative then it's highly unlikely that you're pregnant. But I suggest do get seen by a doctor or midwife later to check if iud is in place. Ypu may use condoms till it's not confirmed.
Yes. It's two fine threads that you should be able to feel inside the vagina. The doctor who inserts that usually explains how to feel for it. You may ask your doctor about it the next time when you get a checkup.
