Mirena (levonorgestrel) probably ok: Often at insertion of a mirena, (levonorgestrel) the string is left a little long, knowing that it can easily be trimmed later on. That is preferable to being unable to find the string! bleeding during the first six months after Mirena (levonorgestrel) placement is variable and what you describe is common. There is no harm in having it checked if you are concerned that it could be expelled; an examination would be reassuring.

Sono reliable: For dating pregnancy, an ultrasound at the stage you define is a very good time to do so. A fetus that demonstrates cardiac activity and appears to be 11 wks by crl is reliably 11 weeks. That's one reason for doing ultrasound. Abdominal ultrasound of the fetus at this stage does have limited accuracy with regard to fetal anatomy, but dating should be quite reliable.

HPV can be treated: Hpv is so common that 70-80% of young women have or have had hpv. Most of the time it causes no long-term problem and the immune system will get rid of it in most people, as with any virus. There is debate about whether or not it can return, or do you just get a different "strain". If a wart is present, topical application of acid by a doctor or prescription medication for home use can help.
