Delayed period after Paragard removal

Hello ladies,

Sorry if this has been discussed before, I couldn't find one.

I had been on Paragard for around three years. It was pretty great except for slightly longer periods and maybe a few more cramps. I got my iud removed around October 15th because we decided to try and get pregnant. I had a period starting October 24th. This period was exactly like what I used to have pre-IUD. Today is December 3rd and still no sign of a period. For a while last week I had sore boobs, mild nausea etc but all of that disappeared after a few days. Took multiple pregnancy tests and they are all negative. I have always had pretty regular cycles lasting around 28-30 days both with or without Paragard. Has anybody else seen something similar after getting Paragard removed? 

Mirena Insertion

I am 23 and nulliparous, and I had a Mirena IUD inserted this morning. I've been off hormonal birth control for over three years, but I decided on the Mirena over Paragard because I want to avoid heavy periods. I was on Yasmin and Yaz for awhile and did fairly badly on both of them, so I am hoping that this experience will be better.

Overall, I almost can't believe how easy the insertion was. I've had stubbed toes that hurt worse than the insertion, and although I'm glad that I was prepared for it to be extremely painful, I feel silly for getting so worked up over it!
