In brief: Check

If you're sexually active then no method of birth control is 100% effective.
An otc pregnancy test will help to figure this out. If this is a brand new Mirena (levonorgestrel) then pregnancy would've been ruled out before placement. New Mirena (levonorgestrel) can cause some pregnancy-like symptoms but then the pregnancy test will be negative.
