Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

It would be virtually impossible to get pregnant with intercourse 2 weeks after a birth. On top of this, you used a condom. And finally, you have a Mirena IUD in place. It would be best to do the following:

1. Check a urine pregnancy test
2. Call your doctor to schedule an ultrasound to confirm that the IUD is still in the correct place

This is likely bowel related symptoms (gas). One way to work through this would be to start a gas medication, such as 'gas-x' or get a prescription for simethicone - this will probably help!

I hope this helps and good luck. Thank you for using HCM!
