Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.The image attached is not relevant to your question.There is a possibility of concept ion with a mirena in situ, it could mean a failure of contraception. Pain in the abdomen and spotting also favour pregnancy chances. Kindly see a gynecologist and get a beta hCG blood test done which is more accurate in predicting a pregnancy and act accordingly.Hope this helped.Regards
