Mirena & cramping

Hi.  I had Mirena inserted in Feb 2011 after my son was born, and it has been great until recently.  I haven't had a period or period symptoms until about 3 weeks ago.  I started having really bad cramps, no spotting or bleeding, and I noticed discharge like I was ovluating.  I remember this from when I was trying to get pregnant.  The first couple of weeks the cramping was fairly constant and I was taking about 3-4 Advil every 4-6 hours for the discomfort.  Now the cramping isn't as bad.  I have an appt to see my OB in a couple of weeks.  Should I try to get in sooner - is there reason for concern?  I work with a girl who had Mirena and is now pregnant.  I'm not ready for baby #2!

Thank you in advance!

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would reassure you that you are probably NOT pregnant, but I would recommend doing a pregnancy test. Unless your test is positive, or the pain becomes unbearable, you can probably wait until your appointment.
Good luck!
