It depends on the IUD. I was on Mirena and I missed several periods, I can't tell you about other makes.

I have a IUD for thre and a half years. I havn't had a single period.

It depends whether you get a hormonal or non-hormonal IUD. I have an IUD that is non hormonal, and just contains copper. This causes a hostile environment for sperm (as copper kills sperm) without affecting my ovulation or other hormonal patterns. Hormonal IUD's are available which repress ovulation and some can also create a mucus plug which aids in preventing sperm from getting past the cervix. Nice to know we have options :)
