I have had a Mirena for 5 years with no problems/ symptoms. Random, infrequent spotting(rarely) and no period. Last Wednesday I had an appointment To remove the old one and insert a new one. The problem is that the doctor could not insert the new one. I DTD the night before the removal. So now it's 5 days later and no period. I am positive I felt myself ovulate on the Thursday. Before Mirena I had 28 day cycles and never even tried to conceive my other 2 children. Could I be pregnant? I know it's too early to test. What are the stats?

The odds are fairly low that you would remain pregnant even if you did conceive. The Mirena ensures that the lining of your uterus is too thin to sustain a pregnancy and this effect can last a little while after it's removed. That's why they recommend waiting a few cycles before TtC, because the chance of miscarriage is so high right after it's removed.
