  • I had a mirena IUD. And I didnt have a period for a while. If it has a slow release of hormones that could be a reason. Try not to freak out. If you still have the packaging read up on some side effects, or I am sure you can do that online... if your still concerned I would call your doctor.

  • I have the paraguard too and was never told that I wouldn't have periods, that is only with Mirena. Take a test since you are 5 days late, it's better to know sooner than later and end up having an ectopic pregnancy and almost die. (I had one, not while on paraguard, but it is very scary if it bursts).

    I have been late 2 times since I have had my IUD and thought I might have been pregnant but wasn't. You could be stressing yourself out which could cause yourself not to have a period. Call your dr, if you are still worried after you take a test.
