Mirena Pregnancy Scare

CmeFair posted:
About two years ago I had an ectopic pregnancy resulting in the loss of my right tube. I have since had the Mirena inserted. At my one year check-up my OB/GYN said the Mirena was very secure and trimmed my strings a bit. I've now had the Mirena for over 18 months and have had a pretty regular 3 day regular-light flow period every 28-30 days. It has been over 33 days since my last period and I'm having sharp stabbing pains on my lower right side. I'm freaking out since this is how my last ectopic started. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and today. Both had a negative result. With my last ectopic the at-home tests were always positive. I can feel the Mirena when I self check so I know it's there. I am worried that I may be pregnant and that my body may be rejecting implantation due to the horomones from Mirena. Would this cause sharp pains? I'm having the pains on my right side which no longer has a tube. I'm so confused and worried.
