See details: An iud makes pregnancy difficult but not impossible. Being that late in an 18 year old is not necessarily indicative of anything all that abnormal. Speak with your obstetrician.

See your doctor: If you have always had regular periods and are now two weeks late with a negative pregnancy test, you should probably see you doctor if your period does not return in another two weeks. Although, there may be nothing wrong as some women will occasion experience this, especially if under a lot of stress.
