Pregnancy with Mirena is very unlikely. If it happens, there is a much higher risk of ectopic or miscarriage, or you may miscarry when they remove the IUD. I do know of one term pregnancy on Mirena (the IUD was removed and the pregnancy continued--interestingly, she had severe preeclampsia that pregnancy despite 2 previous normal pregnancies).
Cholestasis involves the flow of bile to the liver--it gets blocked, bile levels go up, and you itch. (I also happen to know someone who had both PE and ICP in the same pregnancy. No HELLP, though.)
