Had painful mirena insertion. Having contraction like pain. Possibility of pregnancy?

Hello, I went to have a merina coil fitted this morning. It was a failure the pain was excrutiating like labour and the GP said my cervix was rock hard and contracting against the procedure. She spent 20 minutes trying to fit it. I am still having contractions (4 hours later) and have vomited once. The GP asked if I had had sex after my last period and I had not. Though i did have unprotected sex on day 9 of my period. My periods are 9 days. My period is due in one week, could this reaction be a result of a possible pregnancy?

Pregnancy makes the cervix softer rather than harder. And It would have been easier to insert, though it would have caused bleeding as well. Some Mirena insertions are painful and result in crampy pain. The maneuver of insertion involves holding the cervix, which could cause nausea and uterine cramps.
I would advise you to go for the mirena insertion on the 8-9 day of your next period. This will not only ensure you are not pregnant, but also that the cervix is slightly open at the end of the period, which could make the insertion easy.

Hope this helps.
