    No period after Paragard insertion

    Five weeks ago I had my Mirena IUD removed and a Paragard IUD inserted. I had a period right after insertion, but now it's been five weeks. I am 45, any chance I am menopausal? I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative. Not sure what to think about not having a period. Anyone else experience this?

    I just had my paragard taken out and I missed my first period after I had it put in I was scared I might be pregnant again. My dr sent me to get an ultrasound and everything was fine. My periods were so irregular with the paragard but I never once had a pregnancy. I hope this helps.
