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?
