is this normal?

I have an iud and i have only had 2 periods since my daughter was born. she is almost one and i had one in may and one in august. I only breastfed for six months but it wasn't exclusively. Is it the iud that is causing this? I never had regular periods before but this is rediculous. Has anyone gotten pregnant with an iud? I have been gaining weight as well even though I eat the same.

  • If it's a hormonal IUD, yes.

  • I had Mirena and didn't get a period for almost the entire time I had it in. It is normal. Getting pregnant on it is almost impossible.

  • Yes, that could be causing it. And no birth control is 100% accurate, so it is possible to get pregnant on it. Unlikely, but possible,
