Scared of being pregnant... Again...

Jennifer - posted on 11/04/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




Hi! I'm new here and this is my first post ever! My name is Jennifer and I'm hearing impaired so please be bear with my grammar (:

So my subject says it all! I just had my third daughter back in April, she's now 6 months. I have ParaGard IUD since July and I have been having periods since then. Now I'm 8 days late... I don't know what the heck am I going to do! I'm scared to take the pregnancy test, but I will eventually take one this weekend if I'm still late by then. Please ease my mind by telling me your experiences with IUDs! Also I breastfeed. I just hope it's just stress due to taking care of my three little girls (ages 5, 21 months and 6 months) and going to college at the same time.

Thank you!

You may just have to have a pregnancy test and don't worry you'll be fine, even if you were then it's just an addition to your family :)

I know some IUD's can stop periods. It can also take a while for your periods to get back to normal after giving birth.
If you are worried then see your doctor.
