Have pain in pelvic region. Can it be pregnancy?

I have been having lower right pain in my pelvic region. Nothing unbearable but consistant and getting more aware of it weekly. I have an iud and have had it 3 years. I have a 4 and 2 year old. I have had similar symptoms to pregnancy but 3 test say negative and one was a faint positive. They have checked my appendix it is fine. And the strings are still where they are able to be felt. I am very confused. Is it possible I am pregnant?

How long have you had pain for & is it associated with any vaginal discharge - as one needs to rule out possibility of pelvic infection - you will need swab testing to confirm this. Also as IUD seems to be in place it is unlikely that pain is related to pregnancy but it still depends on type of IUD ( hormonal OR copper & also if you had periods with IUD or not)
I suggest urine sample needs checking for urinary infection & also if still worried re possibility of pregnancy - a blood test is available to confirm in case faint +ve urine test
