will pregnancy on mirena cause infertility later?

User Profile
I was wondering if you just happen to get pregnant while on the mirena if you later down the road can not have any more children?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If there is no incidence/evidence of uterine scaring or impaction of IUD, or any other complications associated with your pregnancy while being on the IUD (and if the IUD was removed immediately after confirmation of pregnancy without any major complication), your future fertility levels might be affected. You can try for pregnancy again at a later date. Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and clarifications.
Take care.
