Unlikely: Mirena (levonorgestrel) has an effectiveness rate of 99.9%. It is normal not to have periods while Mirena (levonorgestrel) is in. It is very unlikely you are pregnant.

Blood test: Agree with Dr. G. If you have any concerns you may wish to get a blood test for HCG level to settle the issue. Have a healthy diet, exercise, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, and get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health! Nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.

Possible: It's always possible to get pregnant. Home pregnanccy tests generally do not become positive until you are about one week late. If that test is negative, repeat it in one week and call your doctor.
