Ok I had mirena put in on Wednesday. It was time for me to start my period. They done a preg test and it said negative...but I still haven't started. I also haven't had any spotting or bleeding from the iud being inserted. Anyone else have similar experience or should I be worried?

I have a mirena IUD.
It is common for the cycle to be thrown off for the first few months while the body adjusts to the new hormones. It is also common for the period to be much, much lighter or disappear all together. I actually do not have a period at all while I am on the mirena--that is one of the reasons I love it so much.
On the down side, it would be more difficult for me to detect an accidental pregnancy because I cannot depend on a missed period, but the morning sickness and fatigue are usually enough indication for me to take a test, and I REALLY hated having a period. I got my first IUD 9 years ago, right after my son was born, and am due to get my 3rd one at the end of this year. So far, no oopsies.
