Lack of periods on IUS


#1

@Dr_Paula- A quick question about the IUS

I had a IUS inserted in 7 months ago and aside from 2 normal (ish) periods in the first couple of months I have had no bleeding since.
I am slightly concerned because as far as I can see, a total lack of periods this soon after implantation is rare.
I am not pregnant (checked!)
I was just wondering therefore if this is a cause for concern? Once able, should I visit a healthcare professional?

Thank you

Hello @EmK

Having no periods on the IUS is very common indeed. In some people it happens almost immediately, in others it takes a while for periods to stop.

As long as you are not pregnant then I would not normally be concerned about no periods on the IUS.

Many thanks
