I've had a copper IUD for about 6 months now with so far no problems. Usually pretty regular, cycles of about 27-29 days every month. However this month I seemed to have completely skipped my AF. I was due around 19th/20th of september so that makes me nearly 2 weeks late. I've taken several preg tests all negative except for one that came up with a very faint line after the time frame, so I'm pretty sure it was an evap line. Last test I did yesterday at 11 days late negative, had a blood test on friday but have to go in tomorrow to get results but I'm pretty sure that will be negative too.
I had a very light bleed on the 19th, so light that it was more clear pink than red, for a few hours, then nothing. My AF is usually very heavy on the copper iud.
Anyone had this problem or know what might be going on?

blood test came back negative, so no explanation as to why my af is missing. I know with the mirena it happens but didn't think it did with the copper iud?

Ok so no replies but I'll keep posting in case someone else has similar problems looking for advice..
Last night and this morning I've had very light spotting, and this morning after getting out of bed I started feeling pain. It was like a stabbing in my cervix and one big, long period cramp almost as bad as a contraction, except no break for 5 mins. I was doubled over and had to drag myself back to bed almost in tears. It's eased off now after a couple of hours and I feel mostly fine again. I'm thinking maybe it's af trying to start? What on earth is going on in there!

Given that you normally have heavy periods, and the symptoms you are experiencing, is it possible there is a clot stuck in your cervix?
The only time I've experienced the pain you described was when I miscarried and the embryo got stuck in my cervix.
I'd go back to your gp and get it checked out.

Glad to say my af has started in full swing now so I guess it was my body really kicking it into gear finally after being over 2 weeks late
