Firstly,since your pregnancy test was negative then chance of pregnancy is almost nil.The amenorrhea that you have is due to the Mirena.It causes amenorrhea after few months of insertion. So you need not be worried about that.
About the other problem,discharge from the nipples,it could be physiological or hormonal.I suggest that you get blood for TSH,PROLACTIN done asap.Also a breast examination is necessary to rule out local causes like infection,lumps,inflammation.
It too early to rule out anything with an examination and some tests.
First rule out any local breast problems and then do the blood tests to rule out hyperprolactenemia.

I hope you had a normal breast examination. Hopefully the blood tests will indicate the cause.Otherwise further testing will be required. Did your doctor say why these tests are stupid?

Hello, I am 35 and have had a Mirena IUD for 4.5 years now. For the last 2 months I have been experiencing strange symptoms: constant breast tenderness/swelling, irregular bleeding/spotting, tired often, weight gain. Could I be pregnant? Are my hormones out of order due to age changes?
