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

IUD / coils
the newer IUD's and coil's do that now the stop your periods or make them very very light
Ihad the mirena (which I do not recommennd) I had no periods after 2 months my friend had spotting the entire time she had her IUD which is just plan annoying. If your doctor is not worried then you should not be either.
As I said they use these for some women because it stops their periods or makes them lighter or because they haave issues with their blood for me I had the mirena put in because I developed lung clots medical term a P.E. pulemary embolise. You can talk to the pharmacy you purchased the IUD or any one for that matter just tell them the name and ask if this is a common effect of this IUD.
Unless you think you are pregnant. If that is the case go buy a test and see but your Dr should have tesed you before heésheput the IUD in.
Hope this eases your mind,
take care

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

IUD
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.
