Pregnancy symptoms with the Merina Coil (IUD)

Patient

Q: I have had one child, she is 6. I have the merina coil fitted. It has been in situ for about 3 years. In the last 2/3 months I have been feeling nausious, have gone off some foods that, previous to this time, I really enjoyed, I have very tender breasts and nipples and my breasts are slightly enlarged and my lower abdomen is sensitive and feels 'heavy'. I know these symptoms sound like that of pregnancy but I thought a baby would not grow if the merina coil was in the uterus? Please may you give me your opinion?
