  • mirena can make your period stop. but if she's worried take a pregnancy test.

  • Within 3 months of being on mirena I had stopped having a period at all. It could very well just be that she will not have one while on mirena. She should take a test just to make sure though.

  • She should take a test, but she should also be aware that Mirena stops periods in about 25% of users. I have had mirena for 2 1/2 years and haven't had a period in 2 years. I've had 1 day of break through bleeding twice. The first time was after almost 18 months, the second was after almost 2 years.
