Hello,
Amenorrhea during and after using Mirena IUD is a side effect of this contraceptive. According to an estimate nearly 23.9% women were having this side effect after using Mirena. However if there is any unprotected intercourse then  to confirm the status of pregnancy, I suggest you to test for pregnancy by a highly sensitive pregnancy test 10 days post ovulation with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test. Also then I would suggest you to get your serum HCG levels estimated since this is more specific than urine for pregnancy tests.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

The day i had my coil removed i got put on the mini pill, i have taken it although the odd occasion i have forgotten but for the past 2 weeks or so my breast have been tender especially my nipples, ive had discharge and all the symptoms like im due to have a period...i had something similar last month but nothing happened, my symptoms are slightly worse this month.

i have taken 3 pregnancy tests and all have come back negative, the last one was last week 13th march 2012.
