So first off let me explain that I have the mirena (an iud). I have been having really bad lower right abdominal pain. As well, as my right neck/shoulder has been hurting.
Today after I had intercourse with my husband, I went to pee, and I was posting. I have been spotting for the past 5 days, which is odd for me, I have never spotted since I've had the iud placed.
Today when I went to the doctor he was useless, he just googled my symptoms, that's what I did before I went in.
They gave me a pregnancy test and there was blood in it, and it came out negative. Could I still be pregnant? I am just really scared after reading a lot about ectopic pregnancy

How did you make out with this? Did you see anymore doctors afterwards? I'm having similar problems. I have the Mirena, have lower right abdominal pain and sometimes I do spot. I called the gyno and they said I should make an apointment cause there could be something wrong with the IUD and maybe it's not working anymore but I'm still waiting to hear back for the apointment so looking around to see if I can find anything.
