Sex night before Mirena removed, Could I be pregnant?
I had my mirena taken out almost 2 months ago due to some bad side effects,--not to try to get pregnant, in fact my husband has a consult for a vasectomy next week. I know I will always feel like I want more, but we have made the mutual decision that it would be best for our family not. I am a nurse, so I feel like I should have known better, but just didnt think of it, and my doc didn't say anything about it. We had unprotected sex all week prior to removal knowing we would have to use condoms for a few months. We had sex the night before it was removed too (it was removed in the am). I lightly bled almost spotted for a day or two. The doctor said within the next month I would have a heavy period like your first one after giving birth. I have not gotten it. Approx 2 weeks after removal I have the irritating pressure or sense of fullness in my lower abdomen almost pelvic region. I don't remember feeling this way with my last pregnancy, but somehow this full feeling is familiar and in my gut I feel like I am pregnant and not wanting to admit ti. I was having frequency urinating, and tested negative at work for UTI and at a couple random points never consequetive days have had faint pink on the tp that looked very light with a clearness to it. (Bare in mind that with my daughter I had symptoms very early on and actually knew I was pregnant for a few weeks before the test showed up positve, I even "showed" at 6 weeks) This fullness/pressure is constant and seems to pang when I laugh. I have been having pretty intense food cravings, waves of dizziness and nausea, but no vomitting. My lower abdomen is tender at times to applied pressure and is signaificantly bloated/swollen looking. I am having discharge from my nipples too when squeezing. ( I only looked because I had that immediately when I was pregnant with my daughter, but my breasts also hurt terribly with her and don't hurt too bad now.) I am pretty sure I should have gotten my period around April 14th, which would mean that I would have been ovulating (going by the 12-15 day theory) when it was removed. I have another test to take in the am but am kinda scared to take it. I called my doc to make an appoinment for my day off, but she said she wans to see me immediately because of my symptoms she fears an ectopic pregnancy, so I am going in tomorrow afternoon. Has anyone had this sort of experience?? Is it possible? What do you think, am I pregnant? Does anyone have any insight as to the different feelings of regular pregnancy verses ectopic? I would also mention that any sex after removal was with the use of a condom--except the third time using a condom the entire top ripped off, I took an emergency contraceptive, but threw up right at the hour mark, didn't take another one, but this was only 3 day after removal so I thought i was kinda safe-ish, and I think If I am pregnant I was pregnant before the condom incident.
