Missing Periods On IUD While Breastfeeding

dadgwooley - December 17

My son is 4 1/2 months old. I had him August 3rd, and October 7th I had my first period (exclusivly br___tfeeding at the time). It was normal for me, lasting 4 days. At the same time I had my IUD (ParaGuard) inserted. The nurse told me my periods would be abnormal for a while so my body could get used to the foriegn object. A month later on November 4th I went to the bathroom and noticed I had a little blood on the tissue, and thought I had started my period, but to my dismay - it never came. Just that one little time. Now, I'm still br___tfeeding but also supplimenting with formula a few times a day. So, short story. I've only had one period since giving birth 4 months ago. I don't know if it's because I'm br___tfeeding part-time, or if the IUD is causing it. But I thought my body was going to be bleeding MORE because of it. Not less. Any ideas that could help me out? Please? btw - I took a pregnancy test last week and it showed negative, and I'm showing no signs of a pregnancy except for my missing period.
