Hello LAdies!!

Sooooo, I got the IUD in November... I didn't sleep with my husband until 2-3 weeks after I got it put in, BUT I have NOT gotten my period since the middle of December... Is this normal?? Should I be worried? Should I take a test?? I don't feel pregnancy symptoms.. I hope you ladies can help!

Thank You!! Thank You!

    I have the Mirena, and I don't have periods. I will get random spotting here and there. If you are worried about it, take a test. I have taken two tests so far in the three years I have had it, both negative.

    Perfectly normal if you're wearing a Mirena. My daughter wears one, she's 35, and does not menstruate. But if you're wearing a ParaGard (like I did for 20 years), then there's something wrong.

    20 years? I've had mine for 4. I thought they were new!

    ParaGard (a.k.a. Copper-T) has been around since at least the 80's. But Mirena didn't come out until the 90's.

    I have paraguard and love it. Did you have any children after having it removed?

    No. By the time I had it removed, I was beyond menopause, and no longer needed B/C. But if for whatever reason I had to go back on B/C, it would be the ParaGard, no doubt whatsoever.
