miscarriage caused by mirena
I had the IUD (mirena) inserted in me last Aug 2005. It's been two years now but last nov. I missed my period, although I know i'm safe and sometimes my period is irregular...I still check my urine with the pregnancy test just to make sure. And to my surprise....it's positive...I'm PREGNANT!!! I can't belive it...So, i ask my husband the following day to buy me a different brand of pregnancy test and still the result is the same...I'm pregnant. So, we went to our family dr. they took a blood from me just to be sure....and still it's positive. Finally, we went to my Gynecologist and when she found out that the iud is still inside me, she told me to go to the emergency room and get a sonogram. She wants to make sure that I don't have an ectopic pregnancy. Because if I have it she said we have to terminate the pregnancy. I was at the sonogram room for almost 1 1/2 hr because the lady is having a hard time looking for the baby. And finally, she found it. The doctor told us that the baby is in it's proper place in my uteus. So, everything is ok. Until this tues dec.4, I started spotting. Wednesday, we went to see my doctor and she said there's so much blood. I might have a miscarriage, but she still took blood from me just to make sure that her diagnostic is correct. But that night I am in so much pain....and there's a lot blood coming out from me. I am crying because I don't need a dcotor to tell me that I lost my baby.....with so much blood I know it's gone. And I don't know it just felt different...it's like there's something missing in my body. They said the iud might have damaged the baby. That if it continues eventually, there would be a side effect to the baby. I am in so much pain right now...physically and emotionally. And whoever reads this I suggest that you don't use iud's , just use other methods which is a little bit safer for you and the baby. You don't want to be in this position right now. It's too painfull for me. I don't know who to blame....or just blame myself!
