I took 2 HPTs which were positive even tho I have Mirena. My blood test came positive but with hormone level of 815. I went for an ultrasound and nothing was found. Is there a possibility I'm not pregnant? No one can tell me what is going on. Help!

Welcome to ehealthforum.
It is not impossible to get pregnant while being on the IUD (Mirena). Request your treating gynecologist to get the serial blood HCG levels done each 3 days apart. If these serial tests show rising levels of the HCG hormone, it will confirm the progression of pregnancy. Ultrasound scan can be repeated after 1-2 weeks with a transvaginal ultrasound to confirm the presence of gestational sac and fetal pole.
Take care.
