Patient : Hi, I had mirena for a little over 2 years and with NO period (not complaining). I had it removed on sept 20. On sept 21 they had me start the pill. On sept 22 i began to spot brown and redish. Sept 23 im spotting a little heavier. I was just informed by a friend that if i had sex 5 to 7 days before removal i could be pregnant. Is this true? What are the odds? My husband and i had sex the week before and even the day the iud was removed. Should i discontinue the pill until i know for sure im not pregnant?
