Mirena
I would like to know how effective the Mirena is? Has anyone fallen pregnant with it in? I have mine in now for almost four month. In the last 3 weeks i've been experiencing breast tenderness, excessive eating, and bad skin. Could this be the cause of the Mirena, or could it be pregnancy? And i can't rely on my monthly periods to know more or less if i'm pregnant, as i don't get them anymore. But for the last couple of days i have been experiencing light period pain... Anyone got any advise?

The Mirena is more than 99% safe. The symptoms you describe could be due to the Mirena.
