I've had paragard for 6 months and have not had any periods but I do breastfeed fulltime, should I be concerned or can this be normal?

In brief: Normal

About 50% of women who are breastfeeding will not ovulate, therefore they will not have periods.
The paragard "copper t" iud does not affect the cycle, so it has nothing to do with your periods. I would expect that you are perfectly normal.
