I had the Mirena IUD implanted 5 months ago, not for birth

I had the Mirena IUD implanted 5 months ago, not for birth control, as I've had a tubal ligation 11 years ago, but to control menstrual irregularities related to PCOS. I have also been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and am on levothyroxine 0.05mg. I'm unsure of what the bigger factor in my current issues are- I've been making sebum like it's going out of style, I'm exhausted all the time but can't sleep, and I've been treated twice in the past 5 months for BV/Yeast infection at the same time. Recent TSH (<90 days ago) has me in normal range, Iron is good, but it feels like I'm still hypo because of the exhaustion, I'm getting acne like I'm 14.Is there some connection in some way with PCOS and hypothyroidism, especially in a patient who has a heavy family history on both sides (both parents, at least 2 half-siblings, both grandmothers, 3 uncles on mother's side, etc.) of autoimmune issues (Hashimoto's, Lupus, RA)? Is there a connection with PCOS and hypothyroidism and repeated vaginal infections, or perhaps with the Mirena and repeated infections?

I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and given Provera 10mg

Hello,I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and given Provera 10mg three times a day to stop a prolonged bleed, along with Metformin and Errin birth control after the Provera. I'm on my fourth day of it and I'm now getting bright red blood and small clots with very mild cramping. I thought this was supposed to stop the bleeding and I'm concerned. Is this a normal occurrence? Thanks in advance.

I want to say my last period was at the beginning of August.

I want to say my last period was at the beginning of August. I am sexual active. I have had unprotected sex. I'm not on any medication. My vagina started slightly itching and a light brown/redish discharge followed. It was flaky, not think. It started acting like a period for a couple days, but now it's kind of gone away. I'm still slightly itchy. I've taken a pregnancy test and it was negative. I'm going to take other in a few days. What should I do?

Hi, in May i had a miscarriage, me and my partner want to get pregnant again, my period came towards the end of june, i bought a clear blue ovulation kit to test when my surge is high to conceive. I had to readings, one on july 11, and then it dropped low again but on the 16th i had another peak, both of these times me and my partner had sex at least a day or two before the readings. Im not having pregnancy symptoms, and my period is around the corner oth july 28th. Pregnancy test came out negative 6 days before period. Is it possible that it's still too early for me to test, or should i just assume i didnt conceive? And why did i get two readings? Thank you
