In brief: It is possible

The risk of pregnancy is very low with the iud but possible.
You should do a pregnancy test with the first urination of the day and get your thyroid and prolactin checked with bloodwork ordered by your doctor.The Progesterone in the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud thins the lining of the uterus so over time there is isn't much to shed and some women won't ovulate with it. If tests are normal enjoy the lack of periods.
