after ive had my son, I got implanted with the IUD. I didn't have a period til after I stopped breastfeeding him and ive had one every month. and I was wondering if anyone of u all has had the same problem. I breastfed my son til he was 10 months. ive had the IUD since he was 2 months old. im just really curious ?!?!

I had an IUD put in after I had my daughter but I never got my period after I had it put in. I only started to get the past few months as it got closer to the time that it had to get taken out and even then they weren't my full period it was just light spotting here and there. but my doc. did tell me that for some women it will regulate their cycle if it was not before and some women might just not get it at all like me.

I have had the Mirena (IUD) for 2 years now and it takes time for ur body to adjust sometimes I will get a period but for the 1st year of having it I was pretty regular with my cycle its normal to bleed for the 1st year if you dont have pain or other symptoms dont worry about it

I didn't have one the whole time I breastfed my baby, it was when stopped. but my doctor said its rare to have a period, just spotting the first few weeks. but after I stopped ive had a heavy week long period every month.
