Should I be worried about pregnancy please help

Hi!
If I understand you correctly, you have an IUD in place (the Mirena).
Irregular bleeding is very common with the Mirena coil, and is usually nothing to be concerned about.  The Mirena, in addition to helping control endometriosis, is a form of contraception and should prevent pregnancy.  If you WANT a pregnancy, you will need to have the coil(IUD) removed.
Good luck!
