Abnormality on removed coil?

I got my mirena coil removed today. Attached to it is a 'blob' about the size of a pea. I first thought maybe it was cervical mucus etc, but upon closer inspection, it looks worryingly like a 5/6 week old foetus.
Has anybody else ever experienced anything like this, and would that even be possible? I'm going to take a closer look later on today.

Woah! I don't even know why I'm replying because I have no idea if that's even possible. But I'm getting mine removed soon so very interested. Hope you're okay.

You say you had it removed, was this at a clinic? Did the HCP mention anything?

@chicken i think im okay thankyou, im not really sure how to feel because I dont want to go through all the emotions if it's just tissue matter or mucus! I hope your removal goes okay!

@crypto I had it removed at my doctors, they didn't say anything at all about it but im not sure if they noticed it. I've kept hold of it (may be weird but it has sentimental value haha) and I only noticed after we'd left the doctors.

OP, it's a bit weird that you kept it and very unlikely it's anything other than a bit of tissue. My Mirena attached itself to my cervix, it happens a lot

@teaching like i said, i have reasons for keeping it which are sentimental and i am not going to share those reasons- i haven't come here to be judged so that part of your response was unneeded and unhelpful.
but thankyou for the helpful part of your response, hopefully it's just tissue.

A 6 week old embryo is less than half a cm and virtually indistinguishable from uterine tissue, so it's highly unlikely to be anything but your tissue. I definitely had some bloody looking tissue attached to my copper coil when it was removed...

@physics thankyou, that's a relief!
