I think I'm just being paranoid, but it's late at night and I don't want to freak DH out by mentioning anything to him, so I figured I'd ask here.
Any idea how to tell if you might be pregnant if one has an IUD? I have had my Mirena for a year and do not have periods, at all. Cramping occurs occasionally, roughly every 28-35 days, and that's as close to a period as I get.
For the last week to 10 days I've noticed a slight twinge on my right side, about the level of my belly button, an increase in emotionality (very puppy/baby crazy, teary at times, easily upset, etc.), some hip pain, period-like cramping that comes and goes, fatigue, and some low back pain. It's about 5-7 days after I felt some cramping like my "period" cramping. I had a spot of blood a few mornings ago, which is odd, but nothing since then. DH and I have been dtd more recently, so that could explain the spot and some of the other stuff I suppose - overuse?? lol.
Of course me being weirded out by this new side twinge (which of course is mentioned in some of the pregnancy symptoms lists I've seen) and spot(ting) means I'm hyper alert - after my shower tonight I even tried to see if my tummy looked different! It doesn't help that I had a dream two nights ago in which DH told me that I was 7 weeks pregnant! :O
Should I get a pregnancy test?! Will someone with an IUD even be able to rely on a poas test given the hormones in the IUD??
