I removed my mirens in August 2007. My last period ended the 13th January 2008. I ovulated the 26th/27th January 2008. I have started spotting on 31 January 2008. I am still spotting, is this normal? Today I am experiencing a dull pain, is this normal? How long should I wait untill I do a test? At what stage of the pregnancy would I experience nausea and tender breasts etc?
Could you give me direction?
Thank you

The symptoms are not really suggestive of pregnancy. The spotting may be ovulation bleeding but is going on a bit longer than usual. It could also be that the womb lining is still thinned from the Mirena, hence the spotting. Wait and see if you have a normal period around the 10th and take it from there.
