pregnancy after mirena removal??


so i had the mirena coil in for 5 years, i had my last period march the 6th. i had the coil removed march 30th. the night before me and my husband had sex, and then again twice a few days later. i had no pains or bleeding straight after removal, but 2 days later i spotted for a little bit in the day. since then ive felt like ive had pregnancy symptoms , feeling sick ALOT, tired and really sore boobs. i tested 5 days after we had sex and came back negative. i was due on my period april 6th but still havent come on. i do know having the mirena removed can cause late periods etc. has this happened to anyone else? should i test again at the weekend?

  • Hi There,

    If you weren't planning to be pregnant and you weren't covered by any other contraception, whomever removed the coil should have advised you to abstain from unprotected sex 7 days before the coil removal. This is because sperm can survive for up to 7 days in the womb, and whilst removed the coil sperm and semen from previous sex could in theory be pushed further up into your ready to fertilise an egg. A pregnancy test is only accurate 3 weeks after last sex or when a period is later, lighter, shorter or doesn't come at all. It sounds like you tested too early the first time, but as you are now late, re-test and take it from there.

    Best Wishes


  • Okay thank you very much
