Brief Answer: Likely due to Depo, get Urine pregnancy test Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXX, Welcome to healthcare MaGic, It is really difficult to believe that you became pregnant despite being on Mirena. Depo causes irregularity/decreased amount of menses and also thick vaginal discharge. You should get a urine pregnancy test, I think it is due to Depo rather than pregnancy. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!
