User avatar Hello,
An occasional missed period is considered normal in all women. Most likely your cycle will return to the usual pattern but some IUDs do result in decreased bleeding.
There are rare cases of pregnancy even with this device so if you are in doubt, get a pregnancy test.

Best wishes.
