Question: Hi. I have this question, however, this will sound crazy. My boyfriend had a vasectomy just over a year ago and I have a Mirena IUD in place. My cycle is now officially two months late (with light spotting). I have some of the pregnancy symptoms: heavy sore breasts and sore nipples, frequent urination, lower back pain, slight nausea, and terrible headaches. My last period was Apr 28, 2014. Just today I have taken TWO urine pregnancy tests with a positive result on each one. Is it just my hormones or could I actually be pregnant?

Brief Answer:
TWO POSITIVE TESTS MEANS YOU ARE PREGNANT.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
Two positive urine pregnancy tests mean that you are pregnant.
It does sound improbable to a great extent, with a vasectomy AND a Mirena.
It is very rare to hear of two such solid methods failing.
Can you upload the test results strip, or better still, take a new test and upload the strip result.
Urine pregnancy tests are 97 % reliable, so chances of an error are very less.
A blood test and a pelvic ultrasound scan will confirm it beyond doubt.
All the best

I will have to retake to scan and send. I plan to have a serum test done this week. I didn't think it was possible, that's probably why I ignored the symptoms.
