Severe cramps, light pink and brown spotting. On mirena IUD. Pregnancy a possibility?

I have the mirena so I may be making this up. I had pretty good cramping this past Monday evening. They were pretty severe at times. Just last night I had light pink and brown spotting. It was really light. My period is expected on the 20th. I m freaking out a bit. Could implantation bleeding occur 5 days after implantation? I ve had slight pregnancy symptoms so far.

Hello and welcome to HCM

Pregnancy is unlikely after inserting an IUCD.
However, IUCDs are known to cause certain side effects like bleeding, pain, cramps, infection to name a few.
So, there is a fair chance that these symptoms are due to the IUCD.
But these symptoms disappear with time in majority of cases.
If they persist long, visit your gynaecologist and removal of the IUCD may be required.
However, if in doubt get the pregnancy test too.

Thanks and take care
