Am I or not?
Tue, 07-31-2012 - 12:42pm

So I was on the Mirena untill the 26th of last month. I started my period the same day that it was removed. I was waiting for my period this month, hoping not to get it but figured I would. I am 5 days late, I bought some test and have taken 3 so far, all negative. When I bought the tests the were on clearance, they are the generic ones, but they are not expired. Is it more of a chance that my body is just screwed up from coming off the Mirena or could there of been something wrong with the tests?

I had Mirena for over 4 years and got it out this past April, my period returned the next day and has been pretty regular ever since (well, with my cycles being about 33 days long). I do know that a lot of women's cycles are messed up after having it removed though. If I were you I wouldn't worry too much considering that birth control is crazy!! If you still haven't started in another week or 2 then test to be sure. What cycle day are you on now?
