    I don't want to scare you but it sounds like an ectopic pregnancy. I had one and my levels rose very slowly but I had the symptons. I had a scan at 5 wks to confirm it and there was no sac. I was a little unlucky that I had a doctor who was new and a little green and wasn't confirmed until wk 9 when pains started and I had to go into surgery. I was very lucky that they didn't burst and I could have two shots of methetrexate. My levels were super low when I started testing my HCG. I think the first reading was 7. I have heard that ectopic pregnancys are the usual outcome with Mirena.

    I hope your next blood test is good news however just thought I would share my experience.

    I'm not due to go back for another blood test... Dr never said anything about going back :/

    Do you think I should go back in a week or so for another blood test? And or request an ultrasound?

    I would if you are still getting a positive POAS test.

    I was reading about falling pregnant with a mirena and apparantly you are much more at risk of an ectopic ... but I dont actually know much about it.

    still - its surprising that you are getting a positive from a urine test with levels so low on the blood test. Usually your levels have to be around 20 or so to show up on a urine test.

    weird

    The lines are VERY faint, but on all of them you can defs see 2 lines! :/ (with dd the lines came up quick, both solid pink lines. Where as one is pink and the other is very light pink)

    I'm going to get the mirena out ASAP after all this is sorted - have been reading so much negative stuff about it.
