Hello There..
Welcome to healthcare magic forum..
I would advice you to get a ultrasonogram done which would help you to rule out pregnancy and any other causes which might be leading to absence of menses..
Its is very common to have irregular bleeding with IUDs..You could wait for 1 week and than do further tests..
Hope this helps..
Take care..
