Maybe pregnant : It is possible to get pregnant immediately after Mirena (levonorgestrel) removal. You could also be spotting from ovulation or even just from the device being removed. It may be from implant ion of the embryo if you are pregnant. Many women spot during their first trimester without any pregnancy complication. An over the counter pregnancy test should be accurate 0 days after unprotected sex. Good luck!
