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?

Hi I am a 43 year old Indian married women with two kids of age 14 and 10, I have a history of hormonal imbalnce, Strong PMS & irregular periods through out, otherwise no other health problem, one year back I have removed Mirena because of continuous bloating in abdomen and tenderness and pain in breast, no other side effects during 5 years of usage.8 days back I have gone through my first D&C because of 7 weeks unwanted pregnancy due to contraceptive failure. During the screening I am detected with a fibroid sized 2.4X1.6 Cm in in the anterior myometrium of the uterus . Please suggest me an oral contraceptive which can reduce my PMS as well and can support my age and newly discovered Fibroid. I have heared about Yasmin or Yaz with anti bloating properties, Please suggest, I want to consult an Indian Dr. due to availability of medicines.

I have recently replace the mirena. It was far more painful than the first time. About a week ago I was confused and disoriented. I am exhausted even with full nights rest. I am gaining weight, urinating more frequently and appetite is up. Tested negative for pregnancy. Tonight check for my strings which at first I couldn t find but then did after noticing where they usually are is a large round feeling tender lump. Behind it was the strings. I look bloated and shaped like second trimester now. So lost on what to do.
