Hi I am new to circle of moms. I have a question. I had my 3rd baby on 4/22/13. Six weeks after I went to get the paragard iud. When I got it it was somewhat painfiul and automatically started bleeding. I bleed for a out 6 days very heavily. It was kinda of scary. But anyways eventually it stopped. After the bleeding stop me and my husband had sex and would start spotting right after. I have not had a period yet. So my question is how soon do you get a period after insertion of the paragard? I had my iud inserted on 5/29 and like I said bleed for 6 days, spotted from time to time and no period since. Is this normal?

Yeah I do know a out the mitena stopping your period. The paragard doesn't. It gives you a heavier period and cramps. I'm just wondering when will it come and how soon?

I don't have paraguard but I have the mirena, after I stopped bleeding 6 weeks after I had it put in I only got a period a total of 5 times in the 3 1/2 years and I haven't breastfed in over 1 1/2. I don't know about paraguard but I know with the mirena it can stop your periods.

I do b/f sometimes but not as much as before. I'm just scared that I could get pregnant while on the paragard.
