Recent Tubal Ligation questions

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 had a tubal ligation done last Feb. Found out on Dec 11th

I had a tubal ligation done last Feb. Found out on Dec 11th that I was 6 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Trying to figure out when I conceived. They gave me a due date of July 31st. I went in on Jan 21st and was told I was due July 25th. I slept with 2 men. Once on October 29th the the other on 31st. Then once again one on the 5th of Nov. They are so close together. Is there any way I could know which situation I conceived from?

I have an IUD and the person I am seeing had a vasectomy a couple of years ago. I read today that a man with a vasectomy got his wife pregnant. Mirena and Vasectomy, do I need to worry at all? I am little concerned after reading that story. Should I take a home test to be safe?

I had an endometrial ablation in May of 2015. My periods

I had an endometrial ablation in May of 2015. My periods have gone from 7 days of heavy bleeding to about 5 days of heavy bleeding, and my cramps are significantly worse even taking 800mg ibuprofen q6-8h. These cramps last for about 3 days. What are my options at this point? I work as a nurse and working while on my period is miserable and near impossible. I am so frustrated.
