I had a Paragard IUD removed Dec. 29 '08. On Jan. 9th I got my first period but it only lasted 2 days now it is Feb. 9th and I still haven't gotten a period. I've gotten all the symptoms, cramps, tender breasts, cravings, fatigue, mood swings,backache and still no period. I am trying to conceive and figured I was pregnant, I tested but wasn't. So I'm just trying to figure out what the deal is. Has anyone else gone through this or has any advice to offer?
I used to have a copper IUD but when it was removed my period came back normal maybe a little lighter but not by much. You shouldn't have any symptoms since the Paragard does not have any side effets except heavier bleeding in periods.
give it a couple of days, you may just be late.
