Well, and IUD is supposed to prevent the implantation of a fertlized egg and since it takes 6-10 days for a fertilized egg to make it to the uterus, chances are pretty slim.

Even if her doctor would have done a pregnancy test, it would have been too soon for it to be accurate. It takes 6-10 days for a fertilized egg to implant and another few days for there to be enough of the pregnancy hormone to register on a pregnancy test.

I had some spotting for a bit after I had mine inserted.
It's pretty normal. Cramping afterwards is pretty normal as well.

I agree with tlkittycat1968 - chances are you are not pregnant.
