Hi I had my second IUD put in nov 08 and havent had a period since. My dr doesnt seem to concerned but wants me to check back next mth to let her know if I get one. How common is this and do you think that there maybe something wrong? My first one was great never had and issue. But this one is different it feels off and besides the absent period every few days i have an irritation at the outer top part of my v-lips. have had many tests yeast bacterial urinary tract so forth and so on. any help is appreciated. lesley young
Lesley, I know you posted this a while ago, but my experience is the exact same as yours. IUD insert in Nov 08, it's been well over a year and still no period, no spotting, nothing. I also experience irritation and have been tested for the same things you mentioned and it always is negative. Since its been awhile since you posted, do you have an update?
I do believe you are both fine likely a over making of one of the hormones and it is causing a irritation.
addiemarie and young you may need to find out what your iud is. Sometimes the company that makes that iud gives you a 1 800 number to call for such questions. Talk to the pharmasist and see if they have a number or more info
on it for you. they have these huge books that tell them
what the drug does and how it can effect different people.
best of luck ladies
I have had a mireena for 7 years and I have not had a period. My doctor says it is not a problem, I am hoping to fall pregnent next year after I am married, how much in advance would I need to have it removed to get my cycle operating normal again?
Once the Mirena is removed, your chances of becoming pregnant are almost immediate. My cousin had the Mirena for 8 years and within 3 weeks of the removal, she was pregnant. Normally, doctors like you to wait a month to make sure there's no hormone residue that could potentially do anything to the child, but it's SLIM TO NONE that anything would happen. Just to let you know, the babies were healthy and perfect. She had twins.
this year in may is two years that I have Mirena IUD at the begining I had a period n spotting which I thought it was great. But then after couple of months I haven't had a period at all, Is that normal? But there's day I feel bloated feeling like I'm 4mths pregnant. Is that normal too?
