Mirena IUD

Hello Dr Amy,

I had the mirena coil fitted about 6 weeks ago. I feel like I am pregnant again. I have 2 girls one at 18 months the other 4 months. Recently my appetite has been getting bigger, I have been having mood swings and my boobs are sore. I am feeling sick a little in the mornings. Do you think it could be the coil that is making me feel like this or am I pregnant?

Claire

Dear Claire,

The Mirena IUD (coil) contains progesterone. That could be the cause of your symptoms. Talk it over with your doctor and check a pregnancy test to be sure that you are not pregnant.

Sincerely,
Amy
