Is it normal to miss a period while having paragard?

Is it normal to miss a period while having paragard?

Yes: Missing periods occasionally, with or without a paragard, is perfectly normal. To have a monthly period, you have to ovulate (release an egg). For a variety of reasons, that may not happen every month. The paragard, without hormones, makes no difference here.

Lmp 8/26 still no period did a pregnancy test they all cum back neg im not stressing is it normal to skip a period wit no reason n im trying conceive?

Not if negative : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. After this much time clearly you are not pregnant. See your doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more
