  • Alot of people stop getting periods with the IUD..they still get the PMS symptoms but no actual flow. That could be what is happening.

    If you want piece of mind, go to the dollar store and get a test. A pregnancy with an IUD is rare but also very dangerous. My friend has had the mirena IUD and has not had a period in over 2yrs

  • take the test, sometimes the egg fertilizes in the tubes instead of uterus
