I was getting some lunch ready for the kids then felt something uncomfortable. Had a quick feel and found the whole thing in there!!! It had fallen right out.

Should I go see a doctor?

Could I be pregnant as hubby and I had sex last night and I know sperm can last a while?

I think I might just go back on the pill after this.

Yes.

Yes.

Possibly, discuss this with your Dr.

It just fell out?? Crikey! Yep I'd go to the doctor. I'm not sure about pregnancy, but better to check I guess. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Thanks Kerrie. I have also heard of some bad side effects after it comes out, like depression, anxiety, heavy bleeding etc. Has anyone ever experienced that?

When was it inserted? I would see a GP tomorrow and assess whether you need the morning after pill.

I have has two in and neither have fallen out, but it can happen in the first few weeks.

Thanks. It was inserted over a year ago just after dd2 was born.

Ouch. No this didn't hurt coming out at all. I could just feel it in my vagina afterwards.

Because a merina is impregnated with hormone, it may cause a shift when removed.  Please go and see your Dr.

Wow, how unusual for it to just come out without any pain!

Mine didn't come out, I had it taken out due to those sorts of side effects and more. The side effects started going away not long after it was taken out.

Agree.  I haven't heard of those side effects after Mirena coming out, only as reason that many have had it taken out (including me).
