I have had a mirena iud for around 6mths with

Patient: I have had a mirena iud for around 6mths with no problems, it was removed and replace 4mths ago due to surgery on my cervix and I am now getting pregnancy type symptoms. My period has stopped completely, my breasts are sore and tender, I am feeling and looking bloated and my appetite has increased dramatically, all this has started over the past week. I don’t have any spare money to see my Gyno and I’m just wanting to clarify if these are normal symptoms or if I could be pregnant?

 

 

Symptoms: Cramping, bloating feeling, loss of period, sore breasts, tiredness, increased appetite
