I have had mirena for about 11 months now. I have been bleeding the whole time! About a week ago I stopped bleeding completly. I did take a pregnancy test, it was negative. I'm not sure how good it was seeing as it was one from the dollar store. I have had slot of cramping in my lower back and pelvic area. Should I be concerned?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Sudden stopping of bleeding and appearance of pelvic pain and back pain with cramps suggests possibility of pregnancy. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your gynecologist for a thorough check to rule out pregnancy. If you are pregnant with Mirena inside, chances of it being ectopic pregnancy are high.
Take care.

I have also had mirena for almost a year now and recently have been feeling "not myself." About two months after my mirena was placed I stopped having a period completely and haven't had one in almost 9 months.In the beginning I had some discomfort, but recently this discomfort has grown to the point where I'm not sure what's going on with my body. I've started gaining weight quickly, my pelvic region is growing increasingly tender,I've been feeling bouts of nausea and the cramps are so bad they sometimes make me get down on my knees. Not only that but my appetite has increased, my muscles have been aching and my headaches are getting worse. I haven't had a period in a long time, but wonder if I could possibly be pregnant? Or if these just are symptoms of the mirena? I've done research on this mirena and still can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Some of the things I found scare me a little and were never mentioned before placement. What should I do?
