  • I would call a doc and see what they think. I have paraguard too, it doesn't affect the outcome of pregnancy tests or anything, so chances are you are not pregnant but there may be another medical reason why your period is MIA. Missing periods is normal for Mirena IUD but not for paraguard.

  • You are most likely fine. Just give it another week or so and take another test but you are most likely not pregnant. Us woman always freak out over late periods I think our bodies do it on purpose to stress us out! lol

  • It happened to me when I had mine. It's normal. I would often skip periods. It is still very smart to test if you don't have a period though, just to be sure. But chances are you are not pregnant.

  • with the iud you will have things like this happen some people don't even get a period at all doctor should have told you all of that when they put it in
