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 :)

If you have an IUD it is possible to miss a menstrual period for up to a year or more. You will need to speak with your doctor for more details.

Misisng a period with a hormonal IUD, like Skyla or Mirena, is not worrisome. Missing a period with the copper IUD could be a sign of pregnancy and you should take a pregnancy test.

A copper IUD will not delay your period. The same things can cause a delayed period in women with or without the copper IUD. These include pregnancy and hormonal fluctuations.

You can miss a period while using Paragard, just as you can miss a period when not using birth control. Take a pregnancy test.

Yes. Stress can cause you to miss your period.

User Avatar

No, PMS will not cause you to miss your period.

User Avatar

Yes, you can get an IUD check during your period.

Pregnancy with the IUD is unlikely, as is a period when pregnant. Taken together, it is very unusual to be pregnant with an IUD and still have your period.

you can get the IUD removed when ever you want it pervents you from getting your period

User Avatar

If you have the copper IUD (Paragard in the US), you will get a period. If you have the Mirena IUD, containing progestin, your period will likely stop after a few months of irregular bleeding.

While the copper IUD does not normally stop periods, a woman may miss a period for a number of reasons. Pregnancy and stress are common ones. Consider a pregnancy test if you're having other symptoms.

The IUD will not cause abdominal tightness. The IUD is in the uterus, which is behind the pubic bone; it is not in the abdomen.

You can get trichomoniasis regardless of whether you have an IUD. The IUD does not cause or prevent trich.

And IUD (or any hormone birth control) can cause irregular spotting, cramping or bleeding for up to three months when new. Upon insertion crampong and spotting is normal as well.

User Avatar

stress, anxioty, and or depression can cause you to miss a period. hormone imbalances can also cause you to miss a period. changes in diet and exercise cause miss periods. if you have missed your period you are probably not pregnant, you are probably just stressing your body. see your doctor for more information.

The IUD does not cause pelvic inflammatory disease. You can get PID if you have chlamydia or gonorrhea during insertion of the IUD.

User Avatar

There can be a small amount of spotting when the IUD is removed, but that's not a period.

User Avatar

ive been on my period for almost a month i have an IUD is that normal?

User Avatar

Xanax (alprazolam) will not cause missed or late periods.

User Avatar

Yes, you can have the IUD removed at any time.

Pregnancy on the IUD is unlikely. Getting pregnant during your period is also unlikely. Taken together -- it's possible to get pregnant during your period on the IUD, but it would be a huge shock.
