A 27-year-old female asked:

I was told paragard is non hormonal, why am i not getting a period? i've taken 2 preg tests both said negative. pg was inserted 9/24

Another reason: Paragard does not have any hormone in it and, if anything, can make periods heavier. If you aren't having periods, something else is going on. Get in to see your doctor and look into it.
