Hormonal birth control, like Mirena or Skyla, prevent ovulation and stop that uterine lining from building up, so there isn’t anything to shed or bleed out.

Will I have a period with Mirena?

For most women with a Mirena IUD, not having a period at all is actually the most common side effect. Typically, there is an adjustment phase when you first get a Mirena, and during this time, your period may be irregular, infrequent, or more like spotting. Usually after 6 months, your period goes away completely.

What happens to your eggs when you have an IUD?

1) Hormonal IUDs make the mucus on your cervix thicker. This mucus blocks sperm so it can’t get to an egg. 2) The hormones in the IUD can also stop eggs from leaving your ovaries (called ovulation), which means there’s no egg for a sperm to fertilize. No egg = no pregnancy.
