In brief: Breast feeding?

With 3 negative pregnancy tests you can rest assured that you are not pregnant and a copper IUD if it changes periods at all makes them heavier. Breast feeding can delay the return of periods after pregnancy but seldom for this long.
Thyroid disease is not uncommon after pregnancy and can effect periods. See your doctor for a full history, exam, and appropriate testing. Hope this helps some.
