I think Mirena is making me have miscarriages?

I got my Mirena almost three years ago. At first I had no period at all. Now I'm having very irregular spotting. DF and I don't have sex often sometimes weeks in between when we do. I've noticed I start spotting about three weeks after intercourse. It's not like regular menstrual blood it's thick (tmi) and has a lot of mucous. Could this be a miscarriage?

 I haven't been on BC in a long time, but isn't that what Mirena is? I don't understand how you would get pregnant to be able to miscarriage.

I have bleeding sometimes and strange spotting off and on and have the Mirena.  Now my uterus is also enlarged and I have an u/s next week.  I'm not pregnant though.

It's an IUD.

That type of bc doesn't necessarily prevent a pregnancy but prevents it from implanting or getting too far along. Just look up how exactly it works (a quick google will give you a ton of results, sift through that for something reputable) and you'll see that this can be normal for some.
