How do I know if Im pregnant?

I got mirena removed tuseday after having it in for about 2 and 1/2 years. my fiance and i had sex that night and today i started light bleeding. i think its my period but i havent had a normal period since mirena. they were usually heavy and lasted for 5 days before mirena and during mirena they were 2-3 days light enough to not need pads or anything. i have no idea when im supposed to be ovulating because i never kept track on mirena. is this implantation bleeding? my period? can i be pregnant?

The only thing you can do is to take a sensitive pregnancy test about 2-3 weeks after you had unprotected sex.  If negative and you are still unsure, take another one about 1 week later.

Your periods may be irregular for some time after removing the Mirena.  You may ovulate unpredictably for a while.  

So take a test, and see your doctor if you continue to be concerned.

Hi,
I just read your posts & I was exactly the same as you when i had my mirena in.

I had mine removed yesterday 31.12.09 & had unprotected sex with my husband last night.

We want to start trying soon for a baby but not quite yet.

I was due for my period today 01.01.10 & didnt get it.

& now after reading a few posts i have found out that i can now be pregnant.

I thought with being due for my period i wouldnt fall but im starting now to think twice about that.

Just wondering did you end up getting a period?

Or did u fall pregnant?

Thanks

my experience sounds a lot like your also. had my mirena out 3-31-10 started bleeding the next day. had sex on the 2nd. took a prenancy test 4-11-10 it was negative and started bleeding again this morning. im confused about the whole thing.  i never kept track while having my mirena because my monthly cycle lasted only 2 days and was so light i dint need tto use anything either.
