Paragard, missed period, pregnancy tests are negative


Q: I've been on the Paragard for almost 3 years, my period comes every 30-31 days (nov. 1, dec. 1, jan.1....). As of today, I still haven't got my period and no signs of it either, I usually get sore tender breasts, etc. I went on the Paragard site and it says that it is NOT normal to miss a period. I took a pregnancy test on Jan. 08 and it was Neg. I am super scared since i've had a miscarriage before (before I placed my iud). I know my chances of it happening again with the IUD inside are about 30percent. What do you suggest I do? Could I be pregnant? I'm not stressed, since I know that can be a main factor when it comes to MP
