I have had the Mirena IUD for about 5 months

Patient : I have had the Mirena IUD for about 5 months now and since implantation have had unprotected sex with my monogamous partner. 3 days ago he ejaculated inside of me and today I started bleeding as I would for a period. It's still acting as a normal period, vibrant red color, medium to heavy consistent flow, mild cramping, slight breast tenderness but only if you push on the nipple, and cravings to my usual chocolate and things with salt. I am just paranoid that it's implantation bleeding and these are all very early signs of pregnancy. I haven't had an nausea or severe pain of any sort, but I am concerned it's too early for me to tell. I also know it's far too early for me to take a pregnancy test and get an accurate result. Based on symptoms and circumstance, what is the likelihood that I am pregnant?
