Patient

Q: I have been on my mirena 2 years now and I'm spotting a lot and having very bad abdominal pains. I also took a pregnancy test and it came out positive. Could the text be right?

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

The image attached is not relevant to your question.
There is a possibility of conception 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
